Compass Box revived the lost art of Whisky blending, marrying to beautiful label design. With Ultramarine, they've created a flavor time machine that brings back Scotch recipes of yesteryear (the 70s, 80s, and 90s) in a lush trip through different distilleries. It is, after all, part of the Extinct Blends Quartet series.

Lead Whiskymaker James Saxon was inspired by a deluxe 1980s blended Scotch that boasted sumptuous Sherry influence and pipe tobacco notes when he created Ultramarine. He included hand-picked Whiskies from Caol Ila, Miltonduff, Glen Rod, Speyburn, Cameronbridge, and Glendulan distilleries. Ultramarine is complex, smoky, and a precious collectible Scotch Whisky.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
