  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    a very direct torfer, but rather with a sweet note, clean peat and relatively little barrel. Tame for a "monster".
    • Nose
      fruity, citrus, maritime, mineral, wet stone in the sun, with time vanilla, sweet and clean. The peat is there, rather as a side aspect, but you do not have to look for it.
    • Taste
      very bitter, surprisingly bitter after the nose, also very strong. Pepper, eucalyptus, very direct.
    • Finish
      again sugary sweet, clear peat notes, towards the end a little sweetness and tart notes alternately.

    Jim Murray has awarded 92 points (Whisky Bible 2010) to The Peat Monster Reserve. "...at times a bit of a sweet Monster...beautiful stuff"! Pure matter of taste...

      8/8.5 Classic, dry Islay peat. Huge phenol, kind of abrasive, mostly delightful.

      8/9 Surprisingly sweet and balanced. The peat reek sneaks in on the end, but the maintaste is honeyed and robust and distantly charred.

      So smooth as to be more elusive than chewy. Your mileage may vary, but I find this lightness to be an asset.
