Douglas Laing launches limited anniversary bottling
Let’s say "Happy Birthday, Big Peat". For 10 years now, the popular blended malt whisky from Islay has been on market. Celebrating this anniversary, independent bottler Douglas Laing & Co. now releases an anniversary bottling and what could be more appropriate than to present a Big Beat 10 years old?
This special edition is limited to 5,100 bottles, and of course the whisky in uncolored and unchillfiltered as usual with the Laing products. Like the standard edition, the Big Peat 10 yo offers an alcohol content of 46% ABV.
A special bonus for the Big Peat fans is a small booklet that accompanies each bottle of this edition. "It tells the legend of Big Peat and its whiskey adventures,"telling the legend of Big Peat and his Whisky adventures” according to the press release that also presents the
producer’s tasting notes:
Nose: Peat smoke, damp earth and leaves with a peppery warmth
Palate: Smoked barley and BBQ ash, a sea-salt tang balanced by a leathery sweetness
Finish: Long with streaky bacon, tobacco, toasted marshmallows and charred wood
