  1. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Compass Box The Spice Tree WID: 55483
    Abv. 46%, American and French Oak, Blended Malt Whiskey
    Nose: generous floral notes, sour apples still a little unripe, well balanced but not too heavy and not too light
    Taste: spicy sweetness, with honey, agave juice and the apples from the nose
    Departure: the light spice on the palate carries a short to medium-long finish, here I find more caramel, rather than fruit or flowers
    Conclusion: a nice whiskey for the hot days. For my taste a touch too much acid. In my opinion, a reasonable PLV, but no buying reflex.

  3. karloff scored this whisky 77 points Specialist

    A nice pleasant vatted malt. I bought this bottle at a whisky festival in Tynemouth. 
    • Nose
      Quite a hoppy nose on this one, with vanilla, dates, cinnamon, honey and lots of pepper.
    • Taste
      Medium to full bodied, as it says, a spicy taste of ginger, black pepper, curry powder and dates.
    • Finish
      A medium hot and spicy finish.

  4. WhiskyRanked scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Lovely caramel and baking spices (cinnamon, five spice) on the nose. Orchard fruits, grain, oak, and mint on the palate.

    This is a nice blend without any off notes and very easy to drink. It falls short at the end but still very enjoyable.

  7. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Spice and honey. Nice late summer/early autumn dram.

  8. Thermidor scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    I seem to have lost my notes for this one, but I recall being underwhelmed by it. CB gets a lot of good press among whisky aficionados, but the few examples I've tried (Spice Tree, Peat Monster, and Hedonism) have not made me want to go out and buy more of their releases.

  9. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The Dram has harvested a lot of advance laurels and I'm glad to get to know him better.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Pleasant sweetness and nice yellow fruit in the nose. Apricots, rum raisins, vanilla, some fresh wood
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and soft, with a nice yellow fruit. Honey and vanilla paired with a nice spice. Very pleasant and pleasant, if without corners and edges.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long with nice sweetness and fruit with a very soft finish.
