The wildest of Scotch Whiskies are domesticated in this blend.
The year was 2000 when John Glaser started the Compass Box Whisky Company in his kitchen. An American in the UK, he used to work for a large distiller before he thought, everyone is making Scotch Whisky the same way, why not shake things up and bring back the old model of the Scotch Whisky blending house. So, he threw himself in blending boutique Scotch Whiskies. But how did they go from kitchen to Blending Room in London with more than a dozen of employees, you ask? Not by compromising any quality, that's for sure. Sourcing only the best oak from the Vosges in France and the woods of Missouri, making your own custom casks and seeking only the best casks from the very best distilleries oughta do it.
Oh, and unlike mass produced Whiskies, they are careful not to go too crazy on the number of components in their blends. They also don’t believe in chill-filtering or adding artificial color, but they do believe great wood is important and so is drinking good Whisky any way YOU like. Ah, a manifesto we can get behind!
Menagerie Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is a well-organized collection of some the more strange, wild and beautiful Scottish creatures out there. You’ve got your chocolatey and meaty malt from the Mortlach Distillery, some citrusy and earthy Whiskies from the Deanston Distillery, Compass Box Highland Malt Blend and to wrap it all up, there’s malt Whiskies from the Glen Elgin and Laphroaig distilleries for that musky, tropical fruit vibe. So, there you go, it might sound like a Brady bunch, but it takes a master blender to think out of the box and create a sum greater than its parts that just, works. Only 7,741 bottles available.
