This single malt Scotch is the second chapter of a limited edition trio of releases from Compass Box Scotch Whiskymakers. Designed to challenge the 'myths and legends' that are often perceived as the rules of Scotch whisky, this release is produced with whiskies of different ages, all distilled at Glen Elgin distillery in Speyside. The Whiskymakers set out to showcase the influence not of region, but of process decisions at the distillery, the effects of maturation, and the choices made in the balance of the final blend. Crafted with whisky ranging from 16 to 23 years old, this second release is bottled at 46% abv and limited to just 4,446 bottles worldwide.
The nose is sweet and fruity with exotic fruits bursting on the palate with a silky butterscotch note, before a savoury quality and some sweet spice in the long-lasting finish.
