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 flavour 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.

Katherine,
Very balanced. Might be too hot for some, but I like it.

Joseph,
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.
