Next up on my mini tasting was The Spice Tree, looking a hell of a lot darker than the previous sample of Oak Cross. I can only describe it as burnt gold, with a red kind of glow to the edges!
From the first smell, it's a heavy whisky, feeling full and warm. The spices of the name are big and dominant, and they continue into the taste and through to the finish! There's citrus flavours in there as well, mainly orange from what i can tell.
It's a heated finish which doesnt out stay its welcome, and on a whole the dram is very enjoyable. For some reason it reminds me of a sherried whisky, even though it's not something Compass Box often do.
