3.5 out of 4 average rating!



Keith Petersen says:

S4D, I’ve never had a Compass Box, but I only hear good things about them. The master blender is a genius. I hear the Flaming Heart is suppose to be really good to, more money though. I would imagine making a blended scotch that taste great, would be harder then making a single malt?

Shave soap…

ThatsKrazee says:

How does Peat Monster compare to Laphroaig 10 or Quarter Cask? Have you guys ever given a 4?

Ray Leonard says:

Two things. Well 3.
One – I love this bottle as well.
2 – How can you forget that it’s NAS yet when you rate a 15 or 18 you say you expect more ? If taste is all that matters – that’s that regardless of age.
And for the love of all that is holy in the world of scotch- what does it matter if the whisky can “hold water well”??!!!!
If you need to keep adding water drink wine or beer . Otherwise – nice job. Look forward to the next one!

hey guys, another great video i really enjoyed it. i just wanted to say i live in the UK and was in a super market called Lidl (i don’t know if you have them in the US but there a cheaper more affordable shop) and they seem to have a contract with a distillery called Glen Alba, i was at the counter to pay and saw that the had a 34 year Glen Alba for £44.99 (under $60) i went home and did some research expecting to find poor reviews but apparently its very good, its matured in cherry casks and wondered if its a brand you’ve come across before or perhaps tried? i myself haven’t tried it but i will be buying a bottle out of curiosity definitely.

Good morning gentlemen and happy fourth of July! I’m a scotch noob and appreciate your reviews and banter. Took your recommendation and purchased the Peat Monster (really enjoyed it). Do you have any other recommendations that are similar to the PM? I’m also a fan of the more sweet, fruity, and even sherried whiskies as well (although I’m kinda of a lightweight when it comes to anything over 46% ABV). Thanks for all that you do!

Ledaig is actually pronounced le-chaig. =) Peat monster is one of my all time favourite bottles.

Malted In Montreal says:

Don’t yell at me!… Good review guy’s.

Jackass Whisky and Pinto Beans says:

Am glad you like this because it’s one of my favorites only exceeded recently by Big Peat.

Duncan Harmsworth says:

Great Review Guys! It was nice to have a dram of this great blend while listening. On your live stream in the next video you were asked “Best scotch for $60″… this would have been a great option. as for the Bond Scotch movie… How about “A Dram is Not Enough”?

Jackass Whisky and Pinto Beans says:

I  got some old stock of this for $39.

gshumway Lowe says:

If you like Peat Monster, you’ll likely dig their Flaming Heart blend. Roughly 30% of the stuff is 30 year old Caol Ila. Runs about $125-150 a bottle though.


Any chance you fellas can review the Benromach 10 or 15? I hear these are really good, especially for the price.

TheClarkified says:

I’m loving this! I’m a huge peat fan. Love Laphroaig and Lagavulin. Can’t wait to try this one.

Alex Li says:

Flaming heart is also really nice.

kuato lives says:

Hey guys I really, really enjoy your videos. I am new to scotch but have purchased several bottles based on your reviews. I would consider myself a new whiskey drinker but really love the Ardbeg Uigeadail and Laphroaig quarter cask. Do you have any plans for Ardbeg Corryvreckan? Thanks again for the videos!
