  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I have found a compass box I don’t enjoy, the grains are so dominant and the pour just isn’t balanced.
    Sharp, metallic, grains, spicy sums it up.

    Wow, no review? Ok, let me fix that.

    I was really looking forward to this release, especially as it is 20th anniversary of CB and I have enjoyed Quindecimus, marking 15th anniversary, quite a lot. Availability of this bottle is scarce, so getting 2 bottles required some hunting.

    I have to admit, that this release is quite disappointing, for me, as the used grain components have to be def. younger age. It doesn't hold it's ground especially when compared to Quindecimus (still got opened bottle).
    The strong alcohol is always present, even when left in the glass for a half or whole hour. A few drops of water help a bit, but don't fix all the mentioned issues.

    This is not worthy of 20th anniversary release, in my opinion.

      Sweet vanilla, papaya, mango are dominating, alcohol burn
    • Finish
      84 84
      Mango, pineapple quite dry, short and disappointing
