  1. grinface scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Absolutely delicious. Nice composition with different layers. The coconut start is maybe a tad too much. In addition, as so often, I would like it to be in cask strength. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/12/31/compass-box-20th-anniversary/

    Nose - Vanilla, custard creams, little must, pastry case. Empty glass has dill in greek yoghurt???

    Palate - More of the nose. Vanilla custard. Digestive biscuits. Very light. Lacking in mouthfeel.

    Finish - Not very long. Finishing on much the same - vanilla, custard, biscuits.

    Pleasant, but lacking in intensity and complexity for me.

    Official tasting notes
    Deep aromas and flavours of vanilla pastry cream, toffee and lightly toasted nuts, with a subtle and elegant complexity.

    Along with Compass Box`s Last Vatted Malt whisky this is a tribute to
    the days before the 2009 Scotch Whisky regulations were enacted - the
    final day being November 22nd 2011, the release date of these whiskies.
    From that day whiskies such as this have to be called Blended Grain
    Scotch Whisky, rather than Vatted Grains as they were known before, and
    this is Compass Box`s last bottling named in the old style - a vatting of four different single grain whiskies. Just 297 bottles of this were released.
