Compass Box Peat Monster 10th Anniversary. Image courtesy Compass Box. John Glaser’s original Peat Monster blended malt helped put Compass Box on the map in the company’s early years, and this edition is a worthy successor to the original. The nose is peat, peat, and more peat…with whiffs of creosote, charred campfire wood, and an underlying complexity of honey, vanilla, and dark chocolate notes. The taste is mild at first with subtle peatiness, honey, and vanilla notes, then the peat kicks in with good smokiness balanced with sweetness and a hint of licorice. The finish lingers nicely with a smooth, subtle smokiness and a touch of ashes. (November, 2013)
