Big Peat Christmas Edition 2011 (Douglas Laing) Review

Big Peat Christmas 2011I 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.
