Aged: No age statement
Product of: United Kingdom
A blend of several casks of blended Scotch, blended at quite young ages, then put back into cask and left to age, a few casks being 33 years-old. Compass box acquired these casks and from them blended this November 2013 release of 1,698 individually-numbered bottles.
Little is known about the component whiskies, other than due to all being blended Scotch whiskies, they are blends of both single malt and single grain whiskies.
Bottled at natural colour without chill-filtration.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/01/2014
Clear, golden amber with faint green tinge.
Dried fruit, sherry, old oak wardrobe and leather with nutmeg and cinnamon. Water amplifies oak, sherry and raisony fruit.
Dry and oaky with pencil shavings, cigar box, coal tar, burnt raisony fruit cake and nutmeg. Perfectly enjoyable at full-strength but water opens with fruit, oak and spice sitting in perfect kilter.
Oaky, charcoal and mild nutmeg spice. Delicious.
