For those who love big, rich, smoky-peaty whiskies, this is for you. Peat Monster combines smoky and peaty single malts from the island of Islay and the Isle of Mull with rich, medium-peated Highland whisky.The result is a balanced, highly drinkable peaty blended malt Scotch whisky.Complex and Multi-layeredA whisky for lovers of complex, multi-layered peaty whiskies. What makesit fit perfectly into the Compass Box house style is the balance of richness and subtle sweetness that the casks of Highland malt provide to the smokypeaty Islay and island malts. This is the great benefit of combining single malts from different distilleries; we are not limited to the produce of one distillery. Like a winemaker blending grape varieties, we can create layers of complexity. For recent batches, we have introduced even more complexity byadding some south shore Islay malt and island malt to enhance the peatiness and earthiness. As with all our whiskies, several months of marrying before bottling allow the flavours of each of the whiskies to knit together.Flavour DescriptorsPeaty, smoky malt with hints of fruitiness; a balanced whisky with great depth and complexity.RecommendationsA fantastic late-night digestif whisky.
