Compass Box Scotch Peat Monster

Compass Box Scotch Peat Monster 750ml     
Sku: 52844

A whisky for lovers of complex, multi-layered peaty whiskies. What makes it fit perfectly into the Compass Box house style is the balance of richness and subtle sweetness that the casks of Speyside 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 by adding 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.

Tasting notes
Peaty, smoky malt with hints of fruitiness; a balanced whisky with great depth and complexity

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Jun 2006)
An intensely smoky initial bouquet which then becomes creamy, concentrated, citrusy, mash-like, and very malty. At palate entry heavily smoked flavors of charred barley and kippers appear; at midpalate the taste profile turns sweet, bonfire-like, and strikingly like smoky green tea and honey. Ends sweet, moderately smoky, ash-like, and even caramel-like. An elegant malt despite its moniker. P.P. (12/31/2004) 90-95
