So... it's a little peaty. It's kind of smokey. but it's not as peaty and smokey as i would of thought it to be with a name like "the peat monster".
This vatted malt scotch whiskey is very warm(too hot for some including my wife). Even at 46%, i don't think it should be that warm. It's nose is very deceptive as well. It's all there. Peat, smoke, and even a little something sweet(which i thought odd). But it's all lost in the taste. I don't know if the heat takes away from it's flavor, or it just had more bark than bite. It does however feel somewhat rich. Which makes zero since, as it is so very light in color. I think the heat that makes it feel big. It's all very confusing. I remain baffled. It is good, but not great. Best for me on a cold evening. I think in the end, i was disappointed in the fact that "the peat monster" was definitely lacking in the peat enough to make me question it's title.
