Peat Monster



Peat Monster 46%


Peat MonsterCompass Box is a UK-based blending and bottling company that was founded in 2000 by the American John Glaser. Compass Box have released eight bottlings so far including the Peat Monster. Their first smoky release was named ‘Monster’ and was limited to 540 bottles. The Cask Strength (55%) bottling was highly appreciated, which prompted the company to release another bottling in 2004, the ‘Peat Monster’.

Peat Monster is bottled at 46%. It is not chill filtered and contains no colour additives. The whisky is composed primarily of Caol Ila 10-11 years old and Ardmore 12-17 years old. The whisky is married for several months in ex-bourbon First Refill American oak casks. The marrying allows the intense smokiness of Caol Ila to be beautifully balanced by Ardmore’s milder, sweeter notes.

Light golden colour.

Nose: Intense smoke.

Full-bodied, smoky and slightly sweet. Some maltiness and fruit.

Long, peaty and smoky finish.
