The perfect tour of the Compass Box range of blended Scotch and malts.

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.

Not only does Compass Box consistently delivers superior releases. This year’s Compass Box Gift Set is a collection of three very different offerings. They are delivered in a lovely presentation box holding three smaller bottles — each contains 50ml, which is more than enough for a stiff pour. The collection is a wonderful way to tour the universe of Compass Box offerings, each one a delight.

The gift collection this year includes:

The Story of the Spaniard — a sumptuous blended Scotch with pear, marmalade, and Wine notes at 43% ABV.

The Spice Tree — a blended malt that has been aged in custom, dual-wood casks to deliver a balance of baking spices and oak notes at 46% ABV.

The Peat Monster — their famous, heavily peated, smoky blended malt at 46% ABV.

*Compass Box has recently changed its designs, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a gift set different than what is in the picture. Rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the design.

Warm aromas of sweet malt, grains and honey on the nose.

Medium vegetal peatiness, slight bacon aroma with dry hay and a hint of banana and cardamom. Added water brings out the fruitier elements.

Long bittersweet finish, ash and liquid smoke feel as your mouth dries - whilst retaining pears and some iodine.

The compass tri are as good as hoped. I've had the spice tree before and like it. The Spaniard was very good and the peat monster was good, too

Haven't tried it yet. Afraid it will taste like paint thinner like the other tasting boxes. So far not impressed with the tasting boxes. Gave it 10 stars for packaging only.
