Compass Box Peat Monster Whisky
Compass Box Peat Monster Whisky literally lives up to its name. Some people just love peaty and smoky malt whisky, and for some, the peatier and smokier the better; its for these people that Compass Box makes The Peat Monster. It’s big, it’s peaty (very), it’s smoky (very), it’s rich (they pick really good casks!) and it’s very deserving of its name. The Peat Monster has a balance of richness and subtle sweetness that the old casks of Ardmore provide to the smoky-peaty Caol Ila. This coupled with several months of marrying, creates what is Compass Box’s biggest and most complex offering. Not over the top – that’s just not their style – but big, complex and balanced.

Nose Initially smoky on the nose with peat and a touch of bonfire.
Palate Crisp and clean, with more bonfires, light peat and some citrus edges. Quite full on the palate, some maltiness.
Finish Light and dry.

Compass Box is a small, independent, specialist Scotch whisky company. They are devoted to making some of Scotland’s premier whiskies through the art of blending. Similar to fine wine negociants, they choose individual casks from different distilleries, which offer complementary sets of flavours, and then blend these whiskies in small batches. They have an innovative approach to naming and labelling their whiskies. This approach is all part of their vision: take a contemporary approach to a traditional product. At the core of everything Compass Box create, is a focus
on purity of flavour, richness and a drinking experience that will call people back to their glass. They believe that this is the true measure of a whisky’s quality. The whiskies come from Scotland’s best distilleries, choosing and buying aged stock. They purchase both single malt and single grain whiskies.
