This one will transport you straight to Glasgow.
The beautiful land of Scotland is filled with delicious Whiskies sprouting out from everywhere and just waiting for someone to find them and see them for what they could be. There is extra life waiting for them and extra depth in the flavors. If only there would be someone to recognize them for their full potential, marry the ones who fit, and let them rest for enough time to develop their connection fully. Luckily, there is someone. His name is John Glaser, a former marketing executive for Johnnie Walker, who set out on this quest in 2000 when he established Compass Box, a Scotch Whiskymaker. An adventurer by heart and a true spirit enthusiast, Glaser has since blended enough winning bottles to become synonyms with independent blending and bottling in Scotland.
The good people of Glasgow always liked their Whisky extra deep, full-bodied, rich, and smokey. And you guessed it, the Glasgow blend from the Compass box is just that: a peaty deliciousness on your tongue with a long smoky finish, best enjoyed neat or with some water - even if you pour a little extra, this amazing Spirit has enough essence to still bless you with a tremendous depth of flavor. For extra hedonistic indulgence, we recommend you combine it with rich cheeses and cured meat. Made mostly from single malts from Highlands, and a single malt from an Oloroso Sherry-seasoned butts, this tremendous Spirit is bottled non-chill filtered, at an ABV of 43%.
