Strength: 46% alc/vol
A top-quality vatting of the peated Speysider Ardmore with some choice Islay malts, Peat Monster is never less than excellent.
Pitch-perfect balance and delicious chewy complexity.
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.
