Compass Box The Peat Monster
I've tried this whisky a good number of times before including at the World Record Attempt at 4:30am and i was too tired to do notes. However after a bit of joking on Twitter, Chris from Compass Box was kind enough to send me a sample.
Although Smoky, but BBQ Smoky rather than just peat smoke, this lovely dram also has a much more subtle and fruity side.
