A limited release from boutique blenders, Compass Box, launched in 2020. Created using malt whiskies from Talisker (72.9%), Miltonduff (10.6%) and Ardbeg (6.9%) and a cask strength version of The Peat Monster (9.6%) which was then further matured for two years in French oak casks that had previously matured some of Compass Box's Highland malt blend. A total of 8,328 bottles were produced. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Chocolate, cinnamon and boat tar.
Palate: Fruity and compellingly waxy.
Finish: A dry smoky presence steadily builds.
*According to the Compass Box website: "Please note that the recipe on the bottle’s back label is incorrect. The Highland Malt Blend component was not included in the final bottling."
