  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Tonight we [Whiskyshare’s first meet], gave the Hedonism “Maximus’ from Compass Box WB a run for it’s money. It’s comprised of a 42yo Invergordon [70%], the remainder being a 29yo Carsebridge, both of which were matured in first-fill ex-bourbon. So, let’s begin with these younger [though really not young], appetisers WB [this] & WB
    N: Immediately likeable nutty grain with a rice sweetness, light waxy fruits, vanilla ice cream, dessert fruits, rum…. and much more
    T: More distillate led than I would normally like from a grain but this one is special indeed, displaying lovely sugars and rich esters. Though there’s little mutation, there are instead continuous waves of intent and solid forward movement throughout, with good body, form and mouthfeel. Very decent.
    F: Long seeping finish, first on chocolate [50% cocoa] before concluding with hedge leaves & vanilla with a bitter-sweet edge.
    C: Really good, love it. Next we tried an oldie Invergordon for a good comparison alongside the Compass Box ‘Maximus’ to come. WB
