Fans of big peated Scotches need look no further than this blended offering, which combines smoky and peaty single malts from the island of Islay and the Isle of Mull with rich, medium-peated Speyside whisky. The result is a balanced whisky with great depth and complexity that marries brooding smokiness with hints of fruitiness.

"If you love smoky whiskies, then you must try The Peat Monster."

Product Details

A whisky for lovers of complex, multi-layered peated whiskies, this blended offering combines smoky and peaty single malts from the island of Islay and the Isle of Mull with rich, medium-peated Speyside whisky. It’s non-chill-filtered, aged in re-fill American oak barrels and bottled at 92 proof, and makes a fantastic late night digestif whisky or accompaniment to blue-veined cheeses. Notes of peaty, smoky malt and hints of fruitiness combine in a balanced whisky with great depth and complexity. Malt Advocate scored it 94 points, it and was named "Scotch Whisky Blend of the Year" by Whisky Advocate in 2010.

About the Producer

After many years in the wine trade, American ex-pat John Glaser entered the world of Scotch whisky, learning his art through one of the industry's largest companies. In 2000, he started Compass Box Whisky Company, based on his commitment to evolving practices in the industry to make great Scotch whisky more approachable and relevant to more people. From the beginning, his vision has been to create one of Scotland's finest and most exciting whisky companies, re-establishing the standards for quality and style in the industry. Today, John Glaser is considered one of the most respected whiskymakers of his generation. Compass Box is a blender, bottler and marketer of a range of award-winning blended Scotch whiskies and is headquartered in London, England. Compass Box does not distill its own whisky. Rather, its whisky makers select distillates from a number of existing Scotch whisky distilleries, blend them together, mature them further and bottle and sell the spirits.
