Compass Box Bern's 2019 75cl / US

An incredibly rare limited edition release from Compass Box which was made exclusive to Bern's Steak House of Tampa, Florida.

Despite brands like Ballantine’s, Johnnie Walker and Chivas Regal remaining the best-selling Scotch whisky brands in the world, the blended Scotch category played second fiddle to the more fashionable single malt market in the second half of the 20th century. This remains largely true today, however in recent decades the perception of the blend has improved. The company at the forefront of this is Compass Box, 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, Story of the Spaniard, Oak Cross 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 by the Scotch Whisky Association for its use of suspended staves in casks. Despite investment from Bacardi in 2015, the company continues to push the envelope and rebel against tradition, most notably in its Scotch Whisky Transparency campaign, launched in 2016 following another disagreement with the SWA, this time about their detailed revealing of the recipes of their whiskies.

This release is made up of the following single malts that were married together and aged in a single ex-Madeira cask for six months:

  • Glenlossie - Re-charred American Oak hogshead - 46.8%
  • Clyneslih - Re-charred American Oak hogshead - 23.1%
  • Tamdhu - First-fill ex-Bourbon cask - 15.9%
  • Glen Ord - First-fill ex-Sherry butt - 9.5%
  • Highland Park - Re-charred American oak cask - 1.3%
  • Strathclyde - Refill American oak cask - 1.2%
  • Girvan - Refill American oak cask - 0.8%
  • Caol Ila - Refill American oak hogshead - 0.8%
  • Talisker - Refill ex-Sherry butt - 0.6%

One of 291 bottles.
