A Personal Taste Of Compass Box: The Peat Monster
I finally got to try The Peat Monster by Compass Box this weekend and was quite impressed considering that your everyday urbane whisky drinkers are not too familiar with this brand. I have a personal infatuation for peaty whiskies and this truly hits the spot. The smokiness was so dynamic that it reminded me of a char cooked porterhouse on an open campfire. It coats the tongue quite copiously like a fine oil. Malty, sweet, and almost smokes off the tongue. It went well with the Spanish blue cheese I was having at the time. The Peat Monster is comprised of vatted 100% single malt whisky mainly made of Caol Ila and Ardmore, all aged between 10 and 15 years old.
