Nice kind of monster. 

In 2000 John Glaser started the Compass Box Whisky Company, a firm dedicated to blending boutique Scotch Whiskies. Their commitment is to make Scotch Whisky more approachable and relevant to more people. 

The Peat Monster combines smoky malt Whiskies from Islay with medium-peated Highland Whiskies. It is a secret which Whiskies the Peated Monster is a blend of though - we can only guess, and guess you shall - with your taste buds. The Peat Monster is matured in first refill casks from the Caol Ila and Ardmore distilleries. Peat Monster's PPM Value (Phenol Parts per Million) is approximately 30, which isn’t such a monstrosity as the name might suggest.

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Compass Box The Peat Monster and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Corner
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Pale straw. 

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Medium vegetal peatiness, slight bacon aroma with dry hay and a hint of banana and cardamom. Added water brings out the fruitier elements.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Loads of peat smoke, heat and toasted sesame oil. A slight fruity malt character underneath the smoke.

Finish
Long bittersweet finish, ash and liquid smoke feel as your mouth dries - whilst retaining pears and some iodine.

Comment 
Add a dash of water. Excellent with blue cheese.

Andrew
Andrew,
Surprisingly sweet, so much so that it was off-putting at first. As I got used to it, I loved it. Laphroaig is perfectly complimented with Ardmore's funk. Nice salinity, delicious wood subtly as always from Compass Box. Perhaps the most sophisticated peated whiskey I have ever had.

Josh,
On par with Laphroaig but lower alcohol concentration lets the flavors ring.

Raoul,
Very peaty, but a bit one dimensional as compared to hedonism. After hedonism I expected a bit more but it was just smoke, peat, leather and tar, not really the ethereal complexity of the hedonism bottling
