    At the end of the year Douglas Laing fills its popular Big Peat as a special edition in cask strength and in a special Christmas design. This year's Christmas greeting from the island of Islay contains single malts from the distilleries Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen.
    • Nose
      Smoky with ash, coastal aromas and tar.
    • Taste
      Smoky with extreme sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long finish, becoming dry, smoke and a delicate sweetness remain.

      Obviously peat and smoke to start with. This complements really well with black peppers and earthy notes like soil and peanuts. Some fruits like lemon zest and apples. A note of vanilla aswell. Some heavier notes again like a bonfire with sea-air. At the end a note of eucalyptus.
    • Taste

      Yup, big peaty notes like peat and smoke with ashes and black pepper. Followed by a note of soil. Vanilla and fruity toffees. Fruity notes like lime zest and apples. Next a note of sea-salt and at the end some oak.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Quite long and a bit dry. Peaty notes with soil. Some roasted peanuts and vanilla.

    Solid peated whiskey with fruity undertones
    • Nose
      peas! Including tropical fruits, mango, peach, citrus fruits, lemon, oranges, banana
    • Taste
      Soft entrance with delicious fruit that came back in the nose
    • Finish
      The finish is long, immediately the peat comes up and the mouth is covered with a pungent layer of herbs, fruit and peat

    This Lumberjack Alko is worth a sin, well hidden, the taste of fiery ash, scorched branches, very sweet, some liglin, a little peat. After adding a few drops of water, the whiskey begins to open, it is even sweeter, inviting you inside, I smell honey, but one that stands all the time by the fire during the feast, and in addition, still strong smoke.As for me it is a good Christmas version, but not enough to be the best one as the 2019 Christmas version

    Being a fan of Big Peat, I was looking forward to the 2020 Christmas Edition. I must say I have had better BPs, but it's still a solid bottle for lovers of young and sweet peaty bombs:)

    body - medium body

      sweet, young, "coastal", herby, bbq meat

    Excellent whisky. A perfect Christmas dram for Islay enthusiasts.
    • Nose
      Vibrant, peaty and somewhat minty with an impressive coastal backdrop. Kippers, seaweed and a touch of iodine, but also vanilla custard, charred lemon peel and a whisper of green apple parts and sauerkraut. Just a tinge of soot and rubber soles.
    • Taste
      Mouth-coating. A lovely sweet arrival with some stone fruits, quickly followed by salty chips, pickled lemon and a big hit of peat smoke. Some gentle pepper-y spices in the background. It also has a slight earthy quality.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of soot and tar with a pinch of black pepper. Long.
