To mark its 20th birthday, and to celebrate America’s influence on Scotch whisky more broadly, Compass Box have brought The Peat Monster back to where it all began. They originally created a peaty whisky called Monster for the Goldstein family at Park Avenue Liquor Shop in New York City, in 2003. It turned out to be so popular that Compass Box created a new batch, renamed it The Peat Monster and it joined their core range. The Peat Monster – like most Scotch whiskies – owes its maturation vessels to the US whisk(e)y industry and its practice of using casks only once. To highlight the art of American coopering even further, they have finished part of the whisky used for this special Limited Edition in seasoned virgin American oak barrels, made for Compass Box in Missouri. You will notice an increased presence of vanilla and cinnamon notes compared to The Peat Monster you may be familiar with.

Content:

35% Williamson Islay Malt (Refill American Oak Hogshead)
34,2% The Caol Ila Distillery (Refill American Oak Hogshead)

Tasting notes

Nose: sooty barbecue smoke, green apple and powerfully aromatic citrus oils, all underpinned by warming cinnamon

Palate: tarry, smoked almond, with the seasoned virgin oak delivering added richness and vanilla notes alongside seaweed, cayenne pepper and saltiness.
