A delicate blend that stands up the the top producers in Scotland — bar none.

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.

Compass Box created the Myths and Legends series as a cultural nod to Scottish heritage — as you can see by the color labels — and to address common misconceptions about Whisky blending.

Some would say that Single Malt is too precious to blend. Compass Box Myths & Legends III pierces that dogma. It builds upon the previous edition by adding two peated drams — Highland Park (8.6%) and Caol Ila (6.5%) — to the Glen Elgin base they created in version two. The result is 4564 bottles of nectar that we think stands up in quality and flavor to anything coming out of Scotland — it’s that good. And like its predecessor, it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV without chill-filtering.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Antique Gold.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is warm with a menthol smokiness and notes of exotic fruits.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is rich and deep with a light savory peat, toffee, and a basket of fruits — apple, papaya, and citrus.

The finish is long and satisfying.
Ratings & Reviews
Very complex whisky with a lot going on. Moderate peat overlying tangy citrus spice and faint sweetness. The finish lingers with a bit of saltiness at the end. I enjoyed this but there are a few others at this price and similar style that I prefer (Talisker 18 and Bunnahabhain 18)
loved it
