  3. Mascht scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    In memory of this velvety mouthfeel, like most Compass Box Blends a great creation
    • Nose
      Vegetable notes are reminiscent of young pea pods, a bit like flour and lots of citrus
    • Taste
      Very pleasantly soft and velvety with a strong honey sweetness
    • Finish
      medium to long

  4. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A vatting of top-quality Highland malts that undergo a unique secondary

    maturation in American casks capped with new French Oak heads, adding an

    extra layer of spicy flavour and complexity. The result is fruity and

    rich with clove and vanilla notes.

  5. Master Quill scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    ...a vatted malt

  6. mmaclean scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I went to a place called the Daily Pint in Santa Monica and they had this. I ordered a dram and was suprised. It was nice to have a whisky that has some body to it. This I felt was sweet, spicy, mellow and a finish that was about 3-4 seconds. Not bad for 10$ Thanks Daily Pint

  7. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Sweet nose and taste like a forest or something, so much wood.
    • Nose
      Powerful, alcohol. Sweet aromas, lots of vanilla and toffee. Oaky.
    • Taste
      Very smooth, so much wood flavors. Oak and bark.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, oaky and spicy.
