    On the nose, peat, then a peat relan, there we know!

    On the palate, the finer peat (less aggressive, less chewy) with lemon that soothes the appetizer, so alcohol well placed

    In the final, a return of smoke on the peat, always present

    Monolithic Blend, who does his job, ... for those who love!
    • Nose
      much less pronounced than an Islay, but also sweeter, much thinner than a spey, with more sustained notes on the floral and vegetal side,

    Sweet peat, lemon custard, hint of pineapple, vanilla, salt. Earthy. Slightly savoury. Some medicinal notes. More lemon custand and vanilla on the finish. Oily body. A tasty blend of Caol Ila and Laphroaig.

    My batch is mainly young Caol Ila and Laphroaig, with some Ardmore and Ledaig sprinkled in. Not a bad malt, but I feel Laphroaig doesn't really shine on a lower ABV, even at 46%. It feels a bit too ashy and acrid on the palate. Perhaps others will like this more than I did.
    • Nose
      Charred lemon, peat smoke, slightly coastal, ashy, peppers
    • Taste
      Peat, lemonade, hint of stonefruits, slightly acrid, slightly oily in texture, black peppers
    • Finish
      Slightly acrid, sea spray, dark chocolate, average in length, peppers

    Compass Box The Peat Monster.
    July 2018 - Very very pale. Aroma is spiritous, plastic, medicinal, wax, perfumed vaseline and candlesticks, cheapest aftershave, building smoke. Taste is similar, some booze and smoke but a rounded background. Really rounded out palate-wise. Smells slightly cheap and dodgy but tastes really rounded. Pretty solid actually. Definitely has a nice flavour. I'm guessing the whiskies in the blend are pretty young but the flavour isn't harsh at all, and comes together very well. Grew on me it's just not a sniffing whisky up front. Though in saying that the simple smoke did come out on the nose over time. (3.3/79)

    Sep 2018 - Aroma is a bit cheesy. Smoked cheese rind. Taste is very nice one-dimensional peat. Loads of peat - even more than Ardbeg possibly. (3.4/81)

    Mar 2021 - Compass Box peat monster 46%. This sample is a couple of years old. Quite pale. Aroma has impressions of salt and lemon and seaside food and Scotland. Yep a little peat. Faintly rubbery. Some banana too but not too much thankfully. Impressions of Ardbeg mixed with a Speyside peated malt like Ardmore. Taste is lightweight up front moving to lemon and salt and smoke. The smoke sits there on your breath. Absolutely has to be Ardbeg in this it just shouts Ardbeg. The other parts don't necessarily improve on that vibe but don't dampen it much either. Does not taste young. Builds the peat over time. A good unwinding whisky but it really makes you want to drink an Ardbeg 10. (3.55/85)
