Peat Monster Compass Box Blended Malt Whisky
Type: Vatted Malt (a blend of single malts from different distilleries)
Tasting Notes: The aroma is a highly aromatic combination of fruit, spice and marine peatiness in the form of a beach bonfire. Adding water brings out aromas that remind you of burning ropes and a touch of iodine. In the mouth it is very full on the palate, rich and loaded with flavour: a bacon-fat smokiness, full-blown peat, a maltiness, hints of fruit and spice. The finish goes on seemingly forever, echoing peat and smoke for several minutes after you've had a sip.
Lead Distilleries: Caol Ila, 10 & 11 years-old; Ardmore, 12-17 years-old
Casks: First Refill American oak, ex-bourbon
Bottling Details: 46%, not chill filtered, natural colour.
