Compass Box The Peat Monster Tenth Anniversary Limited Release
Intense aromas of peet-reek, smoke, seaside character and burnt ropes, with a subtle apple-fruitiness in the background. The palate is full, round and tremendously complex. Water brings out a spice- laden, sweet vanilla character, as well.
Ten years ago we created a bespoke blend of very peaty single malts for the owners of the Park Avenue Liquor Shop in New York. Limited Release of approx 5,700 bottles. Bottled in September 2013. In 2013, let's celebrate ten years of sharing the joys of the craft blender's art, of inspiring others in the industry and of enjoying the balanced, peaty charms of this creation. For this special bottling, we have produced a special recipe of The Peat Monster, maintaining the smoky, heavy-peated intensity of the classic bottling and adding a bit more malty richness through the use of some very special, quite odd casks of peaty Highland single malt. A fantastic late-night digestif malt whisky. -John Glaser, Whiskymaker
