Nose: wildflower and a hint of vanilla, also honey Taste: toasted oak, more vanilla, but plenty of citrus, especially as the whisky hits the back of the tongue Finish: honey and vanilla, also some spices (including pepper, but nothing near the Talisker "chili catch"). There’s a wonderful spicy, lemony fizz if you hold the sip for a few seconds towards the back half of the mouth. Lovely stuff.

This blend is quite good , and the carefully sourced Lowland grain seems to really add something to the mix. At $20 for 375ml--not so cheap for a blend-- it's still a bargain. Having tasted the Flaming Heart (4th edition), Oak Cross, Peat Monster (the more recent bottling) and this, I am looking forward to trying the rest of the Compass Box line.
