Nose: Sweet malty notes,engulfed by oodles of fresh orange peel, a citrusy tempest, with a sweet malty heart, that is the whisky. Some spices also evident. Very fresh.

Palate: Less sweet than anticipated, dry notes, and a lot of that orange thing. Think of a very dry Grand Marnier sort of orangie flavour.

Finish : Medium , spice, malt and oranges, some bitterness.

Bottom line:

This is a very well made whisky liquor / infusion (call it whatever you wish). It’s a bit tough sipping a lot of this on a daily basis. It’s a very interesting option after a nice meal, and with some dark chocolate on the side, it’s a perfect desert dram. I’d also expect it to be a marvellous base for some cocktails, and i intend on trying some, mixed with other ingredients to produce a cracking cocktail. The bottle is sexy as hell, and the design is veyr stylish, as always with Compass Box. Would make a perfect gift for someone who appreciates good whisky, and liquors.
