A limited-edition blended whisky from Compass Box, Rogues' Banquet is a blend of a refill hogshead, a re-charred barrel, re-charred hogsheads and grain whisky matured in a first-fill bourbon barrel. When creating this expression, lead whisky maker James Saxon chose whiskies imbued with jubilant and exotic flavours; this blended comprises malt whiskies from Miltonduff, Clynelish and Glen Elgin Distilleries, with grain whisky from the North British DIstillery.
A mix of fresh fruits (ripe pear), tropical fruits (pineapple and papaya) and dried fruits (apricot) create a gorgeous bouquet on the nose, alongside sweet notes of marshmallow and vanilla custard. Fruits continue to burst on the palate, with spicy ginger and caramelised nuts appearing in between each sip of this creamy blend. Spices linger in the finish alongside creamy pastry.
