Compass Box Peat Monster
Added on Sunday, Mar 2, 2008 at 12:00 AM
Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is light and sweet, peat. Taste of light oak/vanilla. Finish is
and warm. Overall there's nothing overwhelming, but this is well-balanced and light. Peaty and fruity. Surprised to find out what this was.
Light citrus. Soft, long finish.
Nose of smoke with fruit -- oranges. Palate of peat smoke, spicy-sweet. A very familiar taste. Finish is of a nice length.
Fruity/citrusy. Light and pleasant.
Alcoholic nose, but very nice fruit and light spice, eucalyptus. Good.
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.
