Compass Box’s Hedonism is an unusual style of 100% blended grain Scotch whisky. They only produce it once a year. This year’s batch (code H29MMIX) comprises just 14 carefully-selected, first-fill American oak casks. The whisky derives depth and complexity from 29-year-old Carsebridge, while 18-year-old Cambus and 14-year-old Cameronbridge provide a sweet, fruit structure. Hedonism’s signature finish is long and full of vanilla cream, toffee and a touch of coconut. As an aperitif, serve with a small amount of chilled water. Late in the evening, serve neat. Makes a great whisky sour. Distillery sourcing: Cameron Bridge, Carsebridge and Cambus, between the ages of 14 and 29 years old. Wood: 100% first-fill American oak barrels or rejuvenated American oak hogsheads. Bottling details: 43% ABV. Natural color. Not chill filtered.
