Another innovative release from John Glaser and the Compass Box team. A vatting of northern Highland distilleries (principally Clynelish), the whisky is aged in unique barrels with heavily toasted heads, adding a rich spiciness – great sipped neat or used as the base for a whisky cocktail.
Fragrant and aromatic with notes of dried herbs, spices, oak and vanilla. Has a bourbon note to it and a peppery tang.
Gingernut biscuits, toffee spices, herbal, vanilla, very rich and peppery.
Compass Box’s delicious Spice Tree was briefly illegitimate, according to SWA regulations. After adjusting its creation, Spice Tree is back, and better than ever. It’s a blended malt made from Highland malt whiskies, aged in specially made casks with new French oak heads.
In April 2015, it was named Best Blended Malt Scotch at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
