Compass Box The Peat Monster Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Still very much the whisky for those who love big, rich, smoky-peaty malts, the latest version of THE PEAT MONSTER is older and more elegant than before. In 2019, The Peat Monster received new livery, with a design that stemmed from the 10th anniversary limited release and when the recipe was evolved they couldn’t resist reprising the design from Marc Burckhardt to accompany it. All batches of The Peat Monster released since 2019 now feature this specially-commissioned artwork. Inspired by feedback from smoky whisky lovers, the new Painting Label of THE PEAT MONSTER incorporates single malts with a more aromatic and graceful style of smokiness. Compass Box have sought to retain the peaty intensity for which THE PEAT MONSTER has long been celebrated, whilst creating a depth and elegance not seen before. New batches of THE PEAT MONSTER boast a spectrum of powerful coastal flavours, combining the smokiness of a driftwood fire with more medicinal peat notes. Orchard fruits and rich cask-derived creaminess balance the multi-layered smoke. It is a new peaty landscape, as the Painting Label shows.
