Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


A limited edition blended malt from the esteemed Compass Box, made with three different malt whiskies. The youngest whisky in this expression is 3 years old (the only age they are allowed to disclose is the youngest component - their Campaign for Scotch Whisky Transparency calls for amends to this), though it makes up less than 1% of the entire blend, with 90% being made up of whisky from the same distillery of "an unstated but considerably older age", and 9% peaty malt whisky distilled on the Isle of Skye.

Tasting Notes

NOSE
Waxy Clynelish goodness immediately comes through in spades, along with crisp clean apples, quince, orange peel, wet wool, soggy porridge, clotted cream, and just a whisper of peat. 

PALATE
The crisp apples now taste baked, and topped with a flourish of cinnamon. Nectarines. Wet wool, a bit of paraffin wax, along with some heather honey, and Ceylon tea.

FINISH
Chinese pepper, matsutake mushrooms pan fried in butter with some sea salt, lychee nut, a dollop of sour cream.
