Today, Douglas Laing & Co announced the Big Peat Feis Ile 2018.
Following up on their Big Peat Feis Ile 2016 and 2017, Douglas Laing & Co follows up with a release for this year’s Feis Ile whisky festival. Big Peat 2018 will be available in 3000 bottles “globally”, which suggests it will be available from specialist stores rather than being sold exclusively from their webshop or only on Islay during the Feis Ile.
The whisky has been bottled at 48% and this year’s release comes in a tube including a set of stickers for personalisation of the bottle (and tube we presume)! Like Big Peat 2017, the bottles do not seem to be individually numbered.
