I was recently sent a few samples by a friend and fellow Connosr member (Stu_R), some of those being the Compass Box range. So I sat down the other week and compared them, first up is Oak Cross.
It had a very pale, light yellow colour, and when giving this a smell I picked up a light wood aroma, kind of like balsawood that I used to make things from back at school. Then I found apple crumble in there, a cooked apple scent with warm sugar. It sounds like a strange description even to myself!
The taste was very soft, very smooth, and the apple crumble theme seemed to carry over into build up of the whisky. As it finished though there seemed to be a bit more body to it, lingering for a while before coming to a pointed end.
I found this very easy to drink, the sample didnt last too long in all honesty! I found it to be a comfortable dram, one that i could probably enjoy far too much!
