Take a warm, sultry summer’s evening.  All our guests have finished dinner and we offer the option of taking a digestive.  Last Saturday we gently cajoled one such guest into sampling Compass Box’s ‘The Peat Monster’….the result could have been summed up as unadulterated pleasure and satisfaction.

A malt whisky that combines malts from Islay, Mull and Speyside  the best of the princely regions of whisky distillation.  Smokey yet with the sweeter elements of a Speyside, ‘The Peat Monster’ provided its recipient (a Catalan gentleman with a sound knowledge of ‘The Malt’) with all that was asked of it with the exception of its indulgent twin – a quality Cuban cigar.  Cheers!
