Compass Box The Story of the Spaniard Blended Scotch Whisky distiller notes:
Our new malt whisky blend, showcasing whiskies aged in Spanish wine casks. Inspired by an eponymously named bespoke whisky we recently created for a bar in New York City called The Spaniard, we decided to explore the sherried style further to create a new whisky for our permanent range.
In this, our first release, 48% of the whiskies have been aged in ex-Sherry casks and 25% in ex-Spanish red wine casks. You will find a whisky that is full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with flavours of citrus peel and pears poached in red wine and spices. It’s a whisky ideal for late evening sipping or stirring into a cocktail.
Batch TS 2018-A (June 2018). Bottled at 43%, 750ml April 2018. Not chill-filtered, natural color.
