Compass Box – Peat Monster
ABV:46% | VOLUME:700ml
The idea behind The Peat Monster is to balance beautifully peaty, smoky aromas and flavours with those that are malty and fruity. This is for those who love intensity, flavor and freshness, balance and drinkability.
It combines peaty single malts from the island of Islay and the Isle of Mull with rich, medium Highland whisky. The result is a balanced, highly drinkable peaty blended malt Scotch whisky. One of the best selling whisky from Compass Box, in the recent batches there is even more complexity added from the south shore Islay malt and island malt to enhance peatiness and earthiness. Several months of marrying before bottling allows the flavours of each of the whiskies to knit together.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, there is a spectrum of seaside and medicinal peatiness. There are also notes of freshly cut grass. The palate is chewy peat, sea salt, vanilla cream and hints of fruitiness. The peat takes centre stage in the finish with an underlying sweetness, sweet spice and oak. A balanced whisky with great depth and complexity.
A fantastic late-nigh digestif whisky. Excellent with blue vein cheeses. Loved by cocktail mixologists
