Singin' in the Grain.

In 2000 John Glaser started the Compass Box Whisky Company, a firm dedicated to blending boutique Scotch Whiskies and making Scotch more approachable and relevant to more people. They are game changers, who have replaced heritage for boldness.

Compass Box Hedonism is one of the Scotch Whiskies in their signature range. It is a blended grain Scotch, produced from 100% grain Whisky (made from mostly wheat, and likely corn as well) sourced from various Scotch distilleries. It is produced only once per year, when they find casks with the right flavor profile, using top-quality single-grain Whiskies aged up to 29 years in first-fill American oak casks. Compass Box blends these grain Whiskies and matures them for an unknown period of time in first-fill American oak casks and rejuvenated American oak Hogsheads.

With Hedonism Compass Box challenges the notion that grain Scotch is only meant to be used as a filler in a blended Scotch Whisky, and shows that grain Whisky made properly using great quality oak and long-aged grain Whisky is to be fully appreciated for what it is – soft, complex and understated, with a full and creamy body. The quality of the blend of grain Whiskies is reflected in the price of the Hedonism.

Martin
Martin,
Delicate sweet flavor with hints of vanilla and a bit of oak. Not overpowering to the nose and a medium linger. Not much bite to it. Delicious with a nice texture and taste. A good one to have on the shelf for the occasional glass to share with friends.

Steve,
Very smooth!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Incredibly smooth. The vanilla topnote overshadowed the smoke, but that’s not a bad thing in my book.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, delicate, Blended Grain Scotch Whisky with a sweet birth, creamy life & silky & warning death.

Huge surprise for me. I'm used to smokey scotches. This was great. Full flavor (on the sweeter side). Highly recommend.

Great smoothness to the drink but the flavor combinations just weren’t for me.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Very tutti frutti. I thought it would have a little more body bud does not hold up with water or ice it. Drink it like a dessert whisky
 
Michael
Michael,
This is quite good - sweet but still whiskey - a good sweet daily drink. Worth a bottle.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Overall sweet, with vanilla up front and more fruity citrus towards the end. Hints of wood and spice. Nice for after dinner.
 
Grant
Grant,
Very sweet! Enjoyed it but probably couldn’t have more than a single pour
 
Jenna
Jenna,
Really sweet. Probably good for one glass but not more
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Everyone seemed to enjoy the tropical and citrus nose that had minminal alcohol smell. Sweet taste with all the notes above and more if you think hard enough. Slight grain warmth on the back of the tongue while remaining sweet. Good sweet scotch that is great for someone not big on grain burn.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
nose: menthol, perfumy, floral, vanilla, cocount, mango, strawberry and cream palate: light texture, some coconut and fruit finish: lots of cream, coconut, mango, and strawberry, medium finish overall: a good starting whiskey for someone who only drinks sweet

Decent scotch. Smooth but nothing that interesting
 
Logan
Logan,
Good balance of sweet and smoke. Strong cinnamon and grain alcohol aftertaste. Not quite as smooth as I was hoping for, but still not bad.
