Peat Monster?...more like a peat maze.......

Compass Box The Peat Monster Blended Malt 46%
This is so Islay in so many ways: salty seaweed, vanilla, soft burning rubber, fresh salty breeze then wintergreen develops.
The palate is reminiscent of an Islay malt, maybe Caol Ila but this has more tar, more charcoal, more salt.
Water only serves to bring out more of the youth and sharpens the salty delivery, leaving antiseptic on the finish.
This dram is disappointing, unbalanced, and directionless as some blended malts can be. 80
