Compass Box 3 Year Old Deluxe 75cl / US Import
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.
This was a typically rebellious bottling of Scotch whisky from Compass Box. Taking aim at UK and EU restrictions on stating the ages of component whiskies in blends (other than the youngest), here we have the Compass Box 3 Year Old Deluxe.
The 3 year old whisky in the blend comprises only 1%, and was distilled near the town of Brora, which for now can only mean Clynelish. 90% of the blend is older whisky from the same distillery, with some Talisker in the mix too.
The 3 year old was matured fully by Compass Box in their warehouses, in first fill American oak casks.
