A top-quality vatting of the peated Speysider Ardmore.-----
A choice Islay malt, Peat Monster is never less than excellent. Pitch-perfect balance and delicious chewy complexity.
NOSE: Peat, marked salinity, leans to Caol Ila in style, something medicinal. Sweet and fruity, grainy.
PALATE: Peat, oak. Botanicals, floral, coppery, sweet, smoky bacon, hint of papaya.
FINISH: A lingering sweetness, more peat, floral: roses and violets, sweet spice, oak.
