  1. Lrandell scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The 500ml sample is uncommon, but it looks especially lovely on this bottle. There is no heat shrink film or tin seal. The whole stopper is simply put on the bottle, there is no extra stuff, and the good thing is that there is not much left in the bottle. The space, the degree of oxidation is not serious, and the flavor is especially typical of CB style. Green apple + light peat actually I think there is a high probability of Laph... But I really don't know the ratio, I just guessed that it is not difficult to understand after drinking it. During the period of 2018-2019, this thing could only be a sample and could not be made into a finished product. At that time, the level of this thing could only be released as the Glasgow of King Street. The whole is pleasant and comfortable. But after the cup wakes up it decays very much

    I really like this one, probably never bought more of any single bottle than this :-). It is a lovely every day drinker or a great starter for a more serious tasting. Well done Promise Bar and Compass Box.

    One I‘d be happy to drink everyday. Thank @andara for sharing! Classy notes from all the components. Really good composition. Probably one of the best balanced whiskies I ever had.

    "Comments: an excellent composition. Good folks who know their Clynelish, Talisker and Caol Ila will have even more fun ‘reading between the lines’."
