Aged: No age statement
Product of: United Kingdom
The producers say, “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.”
Bottled at without chill filtration of added caramel colour.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/11/2013
Clear, pale straw golden with gleaming luminosity.
Peaty smoke, Elastoplast, soot and creosote with salty sea air and sweet freshly sliced apple fruit.
You’ll need water to tame this monster, but water also amplifies wonderful creamy vanilla pastry (cream slice) which balances the salty, spicy smoky peat.
Sweet tar, salty butter and lingering bonfire smokiness.
