"For those who love big, rich smoky-peaty whiskies, this is for you," says Jon Glaser, the founder of Compass Box Whisky Co. Since its inception in 2000, Compass Box Whisky has been committed to making blended scotch whisky more relevant and approachable. "Like a winemaker blending grape varieties, we can create layers of complexity," says Glaser, who is one of the most progressive and innovative blenders of his generation.

Compass Box Whisky Co.'s The Peat Monster is made from a blend, or vatting, of single malt whiskies from Islay (50%), Speyside (30%) and the Islands (20%) that are each between 10 and 16 years old. The Islay single malt whiskies are predominantly from Caol Ila and Laphroaig, while the Speyside single malt is sourced from Ardmore Distillery (the source of the Island single malt remains a mystery).

"What makes The Peat Monster fit perfectly into the Compass Box house style," says Glaser, "is the balance of richness and subtle sweetness that the casks of Speyside malt provide to the smoky, peaty Islay and Island malts."

After sourcing each of the single malts, Compass Box Whisky Co. marries the whiskies together for a few months in refill American oak casks before bottling each batch. Compass Box's The Peat Monster has a intensely peaty nose, reminiscent of beach bonfires. The initial notes of smoke are balanced by a hint of fruitiness and lead to a subtle yet lingering finish.

The Peat Monster earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast and a score of 94 points from Whisky Advocate, which also named the whisky "Scotch Whisky Blend of the Year."
