From Compass Box themselves, and explanation of this monster:

The Union of Earth & Water
Five years on, and the world is a much different place. More and more people each year gravitate to the big, peaty, smoky styles of malt whisky. It is for you that we celebrate the 5th birthday of The Peat Monster with this reserve edition.

To compose this whisky, we have chosen some gorgeous casks of Islay malt whisky from two of the island’s most famous distilleries, complementing them with whisky distilled at Ardmore on Speyside and approximately 2% northern Highland malt whisky aged using new French oak.

The result is an intense and multi-faceted peet-reek character with profound complexity. Made from just a few humble ingredients—barley dried over peat smoke, water and yeast—you will find few other drinks in the world with such complexity. In this, the whiskymaker’s union of earth and water.

46% ABV / 70cl
