Compass Box Peat Monster (Painting Label)
Compass Box // Scotland
Beginning in 2019, Compass Box Peat Monster has both an updated label, called Painting Label, as well as a new recipe. This peated blended malt whisky is comprised using two single malts from Islay. The recipe breakdown is 64% Caol Ila and 35% Laphroaig, both matured in refill hogsheads. Additionally, 1% of the blended malt whisky includes a blend of single malts from the Highlands which matured in custom French oak barrels with a heavy toast. The malts were married together for several months before bottling without added color or chill-filtration at 46% ABV. All previous batches of Peat Monster will be referred to as Classic Brown Label.
