Compass Box The Peat Monster 75cl / US Import
Compass Box is a blending company founded in 2000 by John Glaser, a former marketing director for the Johnnie Walker brand. Their core range consists of The Spice Tree, The Peat Monster, Oak Cross, Asyla and Hedonism blends, and they regularly produce limited editions as well. The company prides itself on its boundary-pushing approach to its creations, and on occasion, boundary-crossing creations, such as the original Spice Tree in 2005 which was banned for its use of suspended staves in casks.
The Peat Monster was born out of a limited bottling titled simply, The Monster, that the company produced for the Park Avenue Liquor Shop in New York. Such was its popularity, that The Peat Monster was rolled out as a permanent bottling in 2003.
The blend comprises peated Islay whiskies from Laphroaig and Caol Ila, along with Lediag and Ardmore single malts. The peat is balanced out by a small amount of Highland whisky and aged in French oak.
