Compass Box Scotch The Peat Monster

Compass Box Scotch The Peat Monster

Sku: P59192

To compose this whisky, we have chosen some gorgeous casks of Islay malt whisky from two of the island’s most famous distilleries, complementing them with whisky distilled at Ardmore on Speyside and approximately 2% northern Highland malt whisky aged using new French oak. The result is an intense and multi-faceted peet-reek character with profound complexity. Made from just a few humble ingredients—barley dried over peat smoke, water and yeast—you will find few other drinks in the world with such complexity. In this, the whiskymaker’s union of earth and water.

Tasting notes
Intense aromas of peet-reek, smoke, seaside character and burnt ropes, with a subtle apple-fruitiness in the background. The palate is full, round and tremendously complex. Water brings out a spice-laden, sweet vanilla character, as well. The finish lasts for many minutes.
