i never had a whisky which worked better with water than this one. trust me - just do it:) compass box does nice stuff and this is not an exception. for this price you get a great blend with high complexity. normally i am not a friend of fresh oak but this is just so round and perfectly balanced that i cannot say anything bad about it. as mentioned. works best with water. without it seems a bit harsh in the beginning. a must try!
creamy and spicy. some waxy notes with honey. cereals. brown sugar. after some time fresh sweetness pops up, almost maritime. floral notes come through. rather complex. nice.
starts of with spicy wood. very nice mouthfeel. creamy and oily. fresh fruit with cream. apricots. some ginger and highland spices. more stone fruit. like it.
bit fusely but not in a bad way. grainy finish, rather short but not disappointing.
