The perfect tour of the Compass Box range of blended Scotch and malts.

Compass Box isn’t a distillery or a distributor. Compass Box is a story. It’s a story that began in the year 2000 when John Glaser — a marketing director for Johnnie Walker decided to break out on his own. He was an American working for one of the most iconic brands in the world of Scotch Whisky and — like a typical American — thought that he could do it better on his own. It takes a lot of Whisky stones to step out of a dream job with Whisky perks and start a business like this. John buys output from some of the best distilleries in Scotland and then creates custom blends which he finishes and ages to create unique Whisky expressions.

Not only does Compass Box consistently delivers superior releases. This year’s Compass Box Gift Set is a collection of three very different offerings. They are delivered in a lovely presentation box holding three smaller bottles — each contains 50ml, which is more than enough for a stiff pour. The collection is a wonderful way to tour the universe of Compass Box offerings, each one a delight.

The gift collection this year includes:

The Story of the Spaniard — a sumptuous blended Scotch with pear, marmalade, and Wine notes at 43% ABV.

The Spice Tree — a blended malt that has been aged in custom, dual-wood casks to deliver a balance of baking spices and oak notes at 46% ABV.

The Peat Monster — their famous, heavily peated, smoky blended malt at 46% ABV.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
