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%.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
