Limited Scottish experiment made with Sacrificial Spirit.
 
Compass Box, the Scottish artisanal Whisky maker has become a shorthand for adventure and mouth-watering stunts. Founded in 2000 by John Glaser, Johnnie Walker's former Mad Man, who thought everyone made Scotch the same way and the world needed something new. He created a company based on the long-forgotten model of Scotch blending house. Compass Box creates custom barrels from premium oak, picks the best Whiskies their laser-focused team can find, and conjure mind-boggling blends. Compass Box and John bring a positively disruptive spirit to the status quo world of Spirits.
 
Compass Box Stranger & Stranger is a limited edition (4802 bottles) release that celebrates ten years of working with the packaging design company Stranger & Stranger. The name of this expression is straightforward, but the Spirit is much more than that. It's a bold, perhaps a tad sacrilegious experiment of making one percent of the blend a non-Scotch Girvan that spent one year in American oak barrels to season the wood. The other 99% consists of Glenlossie, Glen Elgin and Linkwood, which create fresh fruity and herbal aromas and flavors. That one-in-a-hundred Sacrificial Spirit brings a lively sweetness that polishes this fascinating limited delight.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
