Launched in 2021 as a new addition to the Compass Box core range. The majority of the recipe uses whisky purchased as new make by Compass Box which was then matured in a variety of casks. Comprised of a Highland malt blend matured in custom French oak barrels (2%), an undisclosed malt from a distillery near the town of Aberlour matured in revatted Oloroso sherry-seasoned butts (8%) and several malts matured in first-fill bourbon barrels: Linkwood (39%), Clynelish (29%), Benrinnes (20%) and Caol Ila (2%). Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Apple, pear and peach. Black cherry, pineapple and citrus zests. Vanilla and toasted desiccated coconut with sweet biscuity notes and touches of cinnamon and Earl Grey tea.
Palate: Apple juice, muesli, banana and honey. Wild strawberry. Very breakfast-like at first! An oily texture with subtle peat. Sultana, vanilla and then a creaminess infused with hay and meadowsweet.
Finish: Hints of cocoa powder in the finish.
