Picked up this bottle last June for my first every whisky tasting amongst friends. Just so happened that it had just been released for sale by our local MLCC. After hearing so many good things about Compass Box I snatched up a bottle and brought it over for everyone to try.
Now almost a year later and I am having my last dram of it tonight and so I'd thought I write up a little review of it.
Nose: Oak with pepper and little bit of vanilla once it has a chance to open up.
Palate: A harsh attack of cinnamon and cloves at the beginning with oak coming out towards the middle ending with honey.
Finish: Long and dry and just when you think it's over you get hit with a burst of honeyed fruit and a touch of smoke.
Expensive for a blend and not one that I will be replacing in my bar as I can get a better bang for my dollar with a more enjoyable whisky.
