Scottish blended malt bursting with Spanish passion. 

Compass Box isn't a stranger to innovation and adventure. The company was founded in 2000 by John Glaser, a former mad man at Johnnie Walker, and it's been blowing our collective minds ever since. This time, the booze that's making our mouths water is a unique and wild expression of blended malt Scotch called The Spaniard, a lovely mix of Whiskies from Teaninich, Glen Elgin, Deanston and Craigellachie.

Not only were Whiskies in this treasure matured in ex-Sherry casks from Spain, a favorite for many a drinker, but was also in a range of Spanish red wine casks and virgin French oak. That's what we call exquisite! It's deep and complex and quite distinctive. Glaser got an idea for The Spaniard while travelling through Spain, trying their wines and Spirits. He worked on it with The Spaniard bar in Greenwich Village, New York. The result is an explosion of fresh fruit aromas and chocolate flavors.

Abel
Abel,
Such a wonderful spirit. The flavor profile assessment is spot on. It leans toward more spice, for me— but certainly not a bad thing.

Not easy drinking. Tough on the throat and lingers unpleasantly in the tongue.

Complex.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Lovely sherry and and dark fruit notes without being overly sweet. Bitter chocolate and wood spice. Like a warm sunset in late summer.

Greg,
I didn't find this to be sweet at all. It's mostly spicey and not a terribly great flavor mix. Not bad, but definitely not in my wheelhouse.

Not a bad scotch but not peaty enough for my taste.

Quite delicious

Deliciously smooth, and packed with flavor.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Loved it, really easy drinking. I suggest letting it air for a few hours before drinking as it took a way a bit of the sting. A single ice cube made this even better.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Fairly smooth with some nice spice. Tastes a little of pear and apple. Also has some honey and malt taste. I really enjoyed it.
