A truly novel Blended Malt of "Sunshine in a Glass" launching a new limited edition series of collaborations with real-world bartenders.

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 came up with a pretty interesting idea. Since bartenders serve up a near majority of the Spirits, they decided to have bartenders compete to help make up an annual series of limited edition Blended Malts. Compass Box Circle is the result of this new tradition.

The first edition of this series reflects the work of Rosey Mitchell who works at London’s Three Sheets pub. Rosey worked side-by-side with Compass Box whisky-maker Jill Boyd. Together they combined a good portion of Tamdhu aged in ex-Bourbon casks, about 15% Clynlish aged in refill Sherry casks, and then a small dose of a peated Highland Park and a few other bits and pieces. Of course, the final blend is bottled at 46% ABV without chill-filtering… as it should be. Rosey and Jill called their new flavor profile "Sunshine in a Glass."

Lee,
Jill Boyd is a fantastic blender, everything I've had where she was the lead blender is fantastic! I've never had a bad Compass Box, and this one met all expectations.
