Scotch so avant-garde it was illegal in 2005.

Compass Box, Scottish maker of artisanal Whisky, is known for its forward-thinking and extravagant expressions. They create custom casks from premium Oak, select the best Whiskies they can find, create unique and magical blends, which are then matured for up to six years. Then, in 2005, Compass Box went "too far". In their daring endeavor, they decided to shake things up and use staves in the finishing process. Absolute horror show, right? Well, apparently. The Scotch Whisky Association banned the expression in 2006. Again, the staves!

Anyway, the lavish Spice Tree is back. After some tinkering and conspiratorial meetings with barrel makers, they came up with a unique hybrid Oak cask that brings similar results as the verboten version. And its second coming is wonderfully stunning. The 2.0 version was matured in custom-made American Oak casks with heads made of French Oak, and the result is a rich and intense malt with toasty accents and a taste that is so grand it should be illegal again. It's an awe-inspiring dram and expect unexpected smiles or even grins. Your brain will not compute the excellence.

Antti
Antti,
It is a classic, rich, Blended Malt Whisky with a rich & aromatic birth; while a delicate & rich life; that leads to a speedy & spicy death with notes of nutmeg.
 
Alex
Alex,
A delightful tang! Odd as that may sound, the spiciness is delightful! Definitely noticeably, but not overpowering. A wonderful whisky, and a must try for any who love a peated, spicy one. Gambled and bought it without sampling, but glad I did!
 
Amber
Amber,
Not as peaty as I’m used to. Little bit of a burn. Had better for the price
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Super disappointing. The description here may say the nose has aromas of malt but the taste is more reminiscent of straight up spicy grain alcohol. Drinkable, but no balance like I expect from a blend. You could get the same experience from a very young whisky. I'm honestly not familiar with the 3 malts blended to make this whisky but if the end result is indicative of their single malt versions you couldn't convince me to buy a bottle of any of them, sorry.

Really interesting scotch that serves as a great after dinner aperitif.

Rebecca,
Wow, there's a lot going on here, all at once. Malted barley, cantaloupe, apple, & dates on the nose. All that plus... maybe fruitcake? when drinking. Velvet on the tongue, and a hint of smoke on the exhale. Fantastic.

Matthew,
If you kind of want to try spice or smoke, this would be a great intro. Great and easy to drink.

Manque d'originalité, trop sur le toffee et pas assez sur l'epice
