Compass Box Scotch The Peat Monster 750ml
$107.99 price per bottle
To compose this whisky, we have chosen some gorgeous casks of Islay malt whisky from two of the island's most famous distilleries, complementing them with whisky distilled at Ardmore on Speyside and approximately 2% northern Highland malt whisky aged using new French oak. The result is an intense and multi-faceted peet-reek character with profound complexity. Made from just a few humble ingredients barley dried over peat smoke, water and yeast you will find few other drinks in the world with such complexity. In this, the whiskymaker's union of earth and water.

Back in 2000, John Glaser believed there were too many companies making and selling Scotch whisky the same way. An American, transplanted to the UK and working for a large distiller, he wanted to do things differently to bring the joys of Scotch whisky to more people. So, he set up a different kind of Scotch whisky company, based on the long-lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, but with a forward-looking approach and an unrelenting desire to create quality. He originally launched the business from his kitchen, but today, over a decade later, Compass Box has an office and Blending Room in London, its own stocks of maturing whiskies in Scotland, and just over a dozen employees. In an industry that has steadfastly remained committed to the way we've always done things, at Compass Box we focus relentlessly on creativity, process innovations, and exploring the many ways we all can enjoy the pleasures of Scotch whisky. With more spectrum of flavour and style than any other spirit, we believe Scotch whisky is one of the world's great drinks. We are here to help ensure it stays that way for generations to come.
