Big Peat Christmas Edition 2011 (Douglas Laing)
I managed to miss this dram but luckily my good friend Steve (@steveprentice) from Somerset Whisky Blog had a bottle and sent me a dram of it.
Much smokier and drier than the more recent editions but fabulous nonetheless this is tangy, spicy, smoky and filled with doughy bready notes.
Gone completely so really unless you manage to grab one at an auction you will struggle to get this one.
Gentle earthy creamy melted butter and cedarwood smouldering smoke comes first then gentle sweet oak and hints of bbq sauce and crispy bacon on floury soft white rolls
Sweet and creamy initially then smoked honey roast root vegetables with floury doughy bread rolls with hints of lemongrass and bitter spiced blood oranges
