A top-quality vatting of the peated Speysider Ardmore with some choice Islay malt, Peat Monster is never less than excellent. Pitch-perfect balance and delicious chewy complexity.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Elegant peat smoke with coastal brine, orchard fruit and singed spice.
Smoky and earthy peat, sweet tropical fruit touches and floral notes.
Sweetness lingers, layered with smoke, fruit and delicate meadow-grass character.
Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Cigarette smoking through a meal of scrambled eggs, scallops, and strawberry cheescake. Pears, a bag of marijuana, cinnamon.
Sea salt, kelp, lemon cheesecake, a cloud of peat, peaches or nectarines, firesmoke.
Amazing balance from start to finish. Peat and iodine to fruit baskets then burning leaves or wood outdoors. Distinct compartments of flavour that harmonise masterfully, if all a bit too consonant, major thirds and fifths. Monstrous? Cookie monster, maybe.

This is one of my favourites. I cannot believe how affordable this whisky is. To me, this brings me to a campfire at a ocean beach where I'm eating fruits. The nose is amazing. The taste and finish are really good. I wouldn't call this overly peaty at all. If anything, it's more sea-brine than smoke. They are really nicely balanced. Thinking about it makes my mouth water. I keep reaching forward financially to find something that engages me a little more. It looks like I need to spend about 4x the money for a bottle that is more enjoyable (to me).
I absolutely love Islay Scotch and this is the best of a bunch of offerings. It's a poor mans Lagavulin 16, and amazingly complex for the price (roughly $20-$25cdn cheaper than Laphroaig or Ardbeg) but still Coal Ila hits and what is the fruity single malt they add to balance the finish?! Does anyone know?!
I had never tried a Compass Box offering before I went to their distillery presentation at Twin Liquors. Thought so highly of the Peat Monster ?? that I bought a bottle. It definitely won't be my last. Highly recommended.
Dr Whisky's description sounds like Sunday Morning Coming Down in a dram! haha. Smoke Cigarettes while eating scrambled eggs and a mag of pot. So funny.
The name is perfect for this whisky. This a acquired taste
