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.

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).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
