Spirit-wise, one of my favorite parts of the festive season is sipping the annual X-mas bottling from Big Peat. This year, Douglas Laing’s bearded Ileach will again delight us with a heavily peated blended malt encompassing some of Islay’s most popular distilleries. “This is ‘his’ 9th festive bottling,” summarizes company chairman Fred Laing. “Every year we create a slightly different seasonal recipe but always use the same Islay single malts, which include amongst others Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and even some soft, chewed-leathery Port Ellen; but we do so in different proportions, releasing it at cask strength – this year, a punchy 53.7% alcohol strength.” Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
Since Big Peat’s strictly limited Christmas Edition 2019 will hit the shelves of specialist whisky shops and mailorders any day from now, you are well advised to keep your eyes open. After all, the holidays would only be half as much fun without “his” company!
