When Compass Box first started 20 years ago, the first whisky they offered was Hedonism. In 20 years, Hedonism has taken many forms including Hedonism The Muse and Hedonism Quindecimus. Hedonism Felicitas is a blend of three different grain whiskies from Port Dundas, Strathclyde and North British distilleries, with each whisky distilled in different decades. The final liquid is bottled at a cask strength of 53% abv, allowing for a beautiful concentration of flavour.
Vibrant on the nose, a dram of Felicitas offers sweet notes of buttery caramel and vanilla, along with a kick of cardamom and orange zest. The mouthfeel is creamy and fruity, with tropical fruits, oak spices, honey and baked apples. Coconut shavings arrive soon after, with a freshly baked apple pie making for a warm and pleasant finish.
