Big Peat Christmas Edition 2014 (Douglas Laing) Review

Big Peat Xmas 2014Big Peat from Douglas Laing is a really well known Islay blended malt which has now been releasing an annual Christmas Limited run for a few years and this is the 2014 version.

Notes from tasting during my visit to their Glasgow headquarters this is a creamy, sweet, smoky, indulgent dessert of a dram that would go fabulous with some chocolate vienetta or just with your feet up after a mountain of Turkey.

This will sell out quickly so fire across to Master of Malt and get yourself one for Christmas now.
