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.
