The 2013 release of Peat Monster commemorates the 10th anniversary of Compass Box's creation of "Monster" for the Park Avenue Liquor Ship in New York. This is a blend of Islay malts, both from the south of the island and from the village of Port Askaig combined with Clynelish from the Highlands. It is matured in a mixture of American Oak and 2% new French oak for finishing purposes.

Compass Box The Peat Monster 10th Anniversary Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Vanilla and apple notes (almost the sweeter, rarer yellow variety) with a briny, salty style of peat.

    Palate: Vanilla notes come through, along with the waxiness that Clynelish is known for, apple notes that were present on the nose and a definite maritime character.

    Finish: A rather long sweet finish with peat that’s really well balanced by the fruitiness all the way through.

    Comment: Doesn’t seem as peated as one may expect from the name, but this is more than likely just down to the balance of the other flavours meaning it’s not overpowering. A delicious whisky that’s deserving of its anniversary commemoration status.

  • Producer's Note

    Intense aromas of peet-reek, smoke, seaside character and burnt ropes, with a subtle apple-fruitiness in the background. The palate is full, round and tremendously complex. Water brings out a spice- laden, sweet vanilla character, as well.
