Member Ratings and Notes
DW
 
Nose is light and sweet, peat.  Taste of light oak/vanilla.  Finish is long and warm.  Overall there's nothing overwhelming, but this is well-balanced and light.  Peaty and fruity.  Surprised to find out what this was.
Andy
 
Light citrus.  Soft, long finish.
Adam
 
Nose of smoke with fruit -- oranges. Palate of peat smoke, spicy-sweet. A very familiar taste. Finish is of a nice length.
JS
 
Fruity/citrusy.  Light and pleasant.
AS
 
Alcoholic nose, but very nice fruit and light spice, eucalyptus.  Good.
Chris
 
N: Peat and pepper
P: Peat, smoke, and lemon
F: Lemon sugar, oily.
Not much of a peat monster in my opinion.   I've come to expect a bit more from Compass Box.

The use of the word "Monster" in the name implies something that this is not.  I really expected this to hit me with peat and when it didn't, it lost some respect.
