Tasting Note

Peat Monster Whisky entices the senses with a harmonious fusion of peat smoke, maritime brininess, and honeyed malt sweetness.

On the nose, intense aromas of bonfire smoke intermingle with notes of toasted oak, sea salt, and citrus zest.

The palate reveals a luscious combination of smouldering peat, dark chocolate, and roasted nuts, complemented by hints of vanilla and tropical fruits.

The long and lingering finish is a testament to the whisky’s complexity, leaving a gentle smokiness and a touch of pepper on the palate.
