Peat’s Beast is a bit of an enigma. The brand label is owned by Fox-Fitzgerald — an independent bottler. They do not identify the distillery where this monster is made, but there are clues to its origin. The packaging proudly lists

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

from Richard Patterson — a man of impeccable Scotch reputation — and we know that the respected Mr. Patterson is the master blender for Whyte and McKay, who in turn are the owners of some brands that we know and love. Namely their own house brand, Dalmore, and Jura, among other bits. 
 
Jura is also home to several highly peated drams. So, though even their website is shrouded in mystery and intentional myth, we at Camp Flaviar have deduced that Peat’s Beast is a fun and modern Whisky likely from the stills at Jura. But the crack legal team in the back office reminds us that we can neither confirm nor deny any of that, to keep your arms and legs inside the tram at all times and that your seat cushion can be used as a floatation device in the event of an emergency. 

 
Peat’s Beast is a marketing monster. Literally. They imagine a large horned gargantuan made of oak barrels prowling the moors, breathing smoke and thirsting for raw peat to consume. This monolith of marketing mayhem, though maniacal, is masterful at communicating what we need to know. Peat’s Beast Single Malt Whisky is a strong, smoky sip with a bit of attitude
 
But to be clear, Peat’s Beast Cask Strength PX Cask Finish is NOT as peaty-powerful as Bruichladdich Octomore. Almost nothing is. But if you like your drams smoky and your Whisky big and strong with a bit of sweet, this bad boy of the Isles is for you. But lets give this little devil his due… it pours out of the bottle at cask strength — 54.1% ABV — so you can say what you want, but you will not be able to ignore The Beast.
