Compass Box Last Vatted Grain & Malt 2 x 70cl

On the final day before the 2009 Scotch Whisky regulations were enacted (22/11/2009) CompassBox released both these "Last Vatted" malt and grain bottlings. From that day forward the word "Vatted" was no longer legitimate and has been replaced with "Blended". So now Blended Malts and Blended Grains are the acceptable nomenclature.

The Malt is a combination of 36 year old Aberlour matured in a first-fill sherry butt, and a 26 year old malt from Port Askaig on Islay matured in American oak hogsheads and one of 1,323 bottles. 

The Grain is a "vatting" of 42 year old Invergordon, 29 year old Carsebridge, 20 year old Port Dundas and 14 year old Cameron Bridge and one of 297 bottles.

Not happy with thumbing their nose at just one law by disclosing the exact constituent parts of the whisky Compass box also breached another EU whisky law (Spirit Drink Regulation 110/2008, Reg.12.3) preventing the disclosure of constituent whiskies within a blend.

Shipping will be charged at two bottles on this lot.
