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.

Nice blend, very approachable. Nose has hints of vanilla, but is mostly orange zest and cherries. Palate is more orange w/ some chocolate notes. Finish is lasting with some raisins and spice.

Nice flavor, a bit smoky

Devlin,
I loved it, 8.3 out of ten, great nose of vanilla and citrus, palette of vanilla, orange, finish of mild dark chocolate and vegetable pepper spice. Medium to long finish, no smoke, no peat, complex and fun.

Dustin,
One of my favorites. Competes right up there with the best Scotches on the market.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Incredible for a newer scotchy! Smooth, pretty sweet, and light on the finish. Will definitely be buying again.

Complex and full of flavor. Hints of chocolate, cherry, red apple, malt, with well balance spice on the finish.

Grain heavy nose. Notes of toasted grain and caramel apples.

Full, bold flavor. Bitter but smooth.

Matthew,
Don’t get all the flavors from my first drink, but it is soft and smooth enough that I know I like it and will have it again.

Katelyn,
If I had to bottle the feeling you get when you are totally relaxed with an ice cream cone on a sunny day, this scotch is close! It was sweet and just fun to enjoy. If you find yourself with a bottle of this, plan to share it with friends, it certainly offers more then you expect from a scotch.

so so.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Blended Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich & fruity birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long, rich & fruity death with notes of rich vanilla panna cotta, menthol, cinnamon, ripe berries & dried cherry.
 
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
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.
