    Sun. Summer fruits, melon, watermelon, blood orange, pear. In the mouth, the fruits become slightly acidic, the finish is quite long and overlooks the apple.

    Compass Box ‘The circle’
    JULY 24, 2019GAL GRANOV 0

    The latest Blended Malt from the guys at Compass box is called ‘The Circle’, the whisky is is based around a parcel of fruity and creamy single malt from the Tamdhu Distillery in Speyside. This is supported by malt whisky from the Clynelish Distillery. A touch of peated malt whisky from an Orkney distillery and a small proportion of a French oak-finished blended malt whisky complete the recipe. What’s nice is that they have chosen to use an ex-bourbon cask from Tamdhu which mostly releases sherried whiskies, quite uncharacteristic… and some Clynelish of course ????

    The whisky is bottled at 46% Natural Color Light 5 Micron Filtration , and Not Chill-Filtered.

    Nose : It’s mostly like stepping into a bakery : Apple crumble, with lots of vanilla, sweet dough and plenty of malty cereal notes. Icing sugar, more barley sugar and then some more apple peel with a hint of wet cardboard.

    Palate: Starts with Apple strudel, sweet pastries, cinnamon and lots of malty notes, cereals . bitter toasted wood, vanilla ice-cream and a hint of smoke.

    Finish : Wee smoke, apple peel, buttered toast.
