Compass Box Last Vatted Malt
On the final day before the 2009 Scotch Whisky Regulations were enacted (22/11/2009), Compass Box released both this and the "Last Vatted Grain." 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 only acceptable nomenclature.
This 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.
Compass Box is a blending company founded in 2000 by John Glaser, a former marketing director for the Johnnie Walker brand. Their core range consists of The Spice Tree, The Peat Monster, Oak Cross, Asyla and Hedonism blends, and they regularly produce limited editions as well. The company prides itself on its boundary-pushing approach to its creations, and on occasion, boundary-crossing creations, such as the original Spice Tree in 2005 which was banned for its use of suspended staves in casks.
