All about making whisky
THE PEAT MONSTER 46%
Blended Malt Whisky, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: 13073
Particularly smoky, The Peat Monster stays true to its island roots and is mainly composed of Islay malts from Port Askaig, characterised by their smoky elegance, and malts from the south of the isle which have a very earthy and medicinal character.The idea behind The Peat Monster is to balance beautifully peaty, smoky aromas and flavours with those that are malty and fruity.
Style: Lively and concentrated. Nose: Citrus fruit and pear. Smoky and marine. Palate: Peat and spice. Finish: Long. Notes of cold ash.

- Appearance : straw yellow with green hues.
- Nose : lively and concentrated. The initial phenolic nose is also marked by citrus fruit and fruit (pear). It evolves with smoke. Caol Ila’s marine character (roe) becomes increasingly present. A drop of water reveals notes of sweet almond.
- Palate : powerful. A frank opening with liquorice stick. It develops with the acridity of the peat and spice (pepper).
- Overall : long and persistent, with notes of cold ash.
- The brand
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.

Correct mais j'y prend pas un plaisir fou a le boire.
David D. the 12/03/2018
Un gout subtile et surprenant. La tourbe est délicate, des notes fruitées viennent ensuite. Je suis très agréablement surpris par ce Whisky.
