Whisky reviews for The Peat Monster Arcana CB

6 users have left 6 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.83 points.

  1. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    I enjoyed how some of the blend components shined through. The salty-citrus Talisker was readily apparent, and even the humble Miltonduff lent some of its creaminess (though not quite the cream-cheese frosting I associate with it). Elements of the original peat monster were present, but the overall experience felt elevated with a much fuller mouthfeel and finish. I wish I could try this at cask strength as, while it felt full, it felt full like a goose-down pillow, stuffed full of flavor and still somehow on the lighter side.

    Mental Image: Early Autumn Camping
    • Nose
      Maritime, peat reek, and grass. Mellow acrid peat reek and citrus gave way to hay, burnt grass, and menthol. Subtle meaty smoke hid behind layers of lemon, ginger, peppercorns, and honey.
    • Taste
      Medium to light body with excellent structure and notes of citrus, salt, and autumn. Hints of sweet pipe tobacco complimented forward notes of grass, burning underbrush, and dried leaves. Autumn stretched across the palate with freshly lit campfires, mild earthiness, and warm ginger root tea. Toward the back end were dried citrus, menthol, and cream.
    • Finish
      Mellow ginger lemon honey tea with wisps of smoke.

    Aroma sits warm and buttery with a profoundly fruity presence mixed with light smoke and a dusting of vanilla accented desserts – it’s nice, but feels like it’s missing something; Palate comes through like a smoked banana’s foster with a malty / graham essence and a touch of marshmallow sweetness; Finish is a dialed back expressions of the palate with more smoke
