All about making whisky
After the Peat Monster Tenth Anniversary in 2014, a new limited edition has been released from the signature range at Compass Box. In a larger bottle (1.5L) and stronger (bottled at cask strength) than the classic edition, Peat Monster Cask Strength can definitely be classified as a great whisky. It provides an opportunity to explore all the facets of the peat and smoky notes that characterise it at 57.3% ABV.
Magnum edition limited of 2,000 bottles. PROFILE Style: Peated and intense. Nose: Powerful. Saline and earthy notes. Palate: Rich and complex. Intense notes of smoke and hazelnuts. Finish: Long with citrus fruit and toasted oak.
Particulièrement fumé, The Peat Monster ne renie pas ses origines insulaires et fait la part belle aux malts de l’île d’Islay en provenance de Port Askaig marqué par leur fumé élégant et ceux du sud de l’île au caractère beaucoup plus terreux et médicinal. Le Speyside y est cependant représenté avec la distillerie Ardmore réputée parmi les connaisseurs pour l’excellence de ses malts fumés.
Compass Box is unique in the world of whisky. Founded just over ten years ago, it is a small independent company specialising in the blending of whiskies bought from the main whisky producers. Compass Box has made this its speciality, becoming the master in its fields of blended malts, blended grains and blended whisky, with each category represented in its portfolio. It is also a company with a genuine philosophy, elevating blending to a worthy, noble task, distancing itself from its industrial image and reasserting the value of its craft as a ‘whiskymaker’.
