The Peat Monster

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Classic Brown Label
NEW
The Painting Label

The idea behind The Peat Monster is to balance beautifully peaty, smoky aromas and flavours with those that are malty and fruity.

You will find peatier, smokier whiskies in Scotland. But you will find no whisky quite like THE PEAT MONSTER in terms of class and style. Blending peated single malt whiskies from different regions of Scotland has created a style that is unique in the world of Scotch whisky.

This classic brown and gold label is to be found on all recent batches of THE PEAT MONSTER, released up to the end of 2018. Please scroll to the next page if your bottle of THE PEAT MONSTER has a different label.

Classic label THE PEAT MONSTER delivers medicinal peatiness along with kipper-like smokiness, all surrounding a core of fruity sweetness. It represents the exuberance of peated malt whisky, showing intensity of flavour as well as freshness. It is balanced, with compelling drinkability.

THE PEAT MONSTER, either with this classic label or the new Painting Label, is a whisky for those who appreciate the blending of seemingly dissonant elements to create something sublime.

For 2019, The Peat Monster has a new label. Featuring this quite marvellous specially-commissioned painting, all batches released going forward will showcase the new artwork. It isn’t just the packaging that is different, however: the recipe has evolved, too.

Still very much the whisky for those who love big, rich, smoky-peaty malts, our latest version of THE PEAT MONSTER is older and more elegant than before.

Inspired by feedback from smoky whisky lovers, our new Painting Label of THE PEAT MONSTER incorporates single malts with a more aromatic and graceful style of smokiness. We have sought to retain the peaty intensity for which THE PEAT MONSTER has long been celebrated, whilst creating a depth and elegance not seen before.

Lead Whiskymaker: John Glaser

New batches of THE PEAT MONSTER boast a spectrum of powerful coastal flavours, combining the smokiness of a driftwood fire with more medicinal peat notes. Orchard fruits and rich cask-derived creaminess balance the multi-layered smoke. It is a new peaty landscape, as the Painting Label shows.

The evolution is a subtle one. We hope you will hunt down both labels and enjoy teasing out the contrasts.
