- 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.
