Review is based on a freshly opened bottle.

Nose: oak influence is big - sawn lumber, sawdust, a lot of vanilla, cloves, baked apple covered with lots of cinnamon, hot red pepper

Palate: cardamom, vanilla, white pepper, fresh almonds (or even apricot seed), a bit of furniture polish

Finish: wet oak, pepper, then quickly transforms to vanilla and light smoke. Medium length.

Well, what can I say, whisky profile goes hand in hand with it's name - there are lots of spices going on. The balance is great - blenders at Compass Box do their job just great! This whisky is spicy and tasty. It's not too sugary and is easy drinking. Well done, Compass Box!
