Composed of less than 1% three year-old malt whisky produced near the village of Brora, 90% malt whisky of an unstated age from the same distillery and around 9% peaty malt whisky distilled on the Isle of Skye. Due to the way regulations are setup in Europe, compass box is only permitted to share details of the age of youngest component! This dram is aged in first-fill American oak casks, followed by refill hogshead barrels, and finished in first fill sherry butt casks.

Interestingly enough this dram seems to possess older whisky blends, however due to regulations, we have no idea which whisky or what years are also present. Regardless this is an amazing dram that not only looks good in your collection, it tastes as good as it looks.

Name: Compass Box Three Year old Deluxe Scotch

Region: Scotland

ABV: 49.2%

Nose: Smoke, black pepper, candle wax and dry oak.

Palate: Cinnamon and almost cardamom like spices, mixed together with a wax like taste and dried citrus fruits. Honey and sweet mandarin oranges fill out the rest of the palate.

Finish: Long finish with peppery smoke and a nice sensational burn of nutmeg on the backend.
