Compass Box Stranger and Stranger Blended Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Compass Box Stranger and Stranger Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Since its inception in 2000, Compass Box Whisky Company has been stewarded by John Glaser, one of the most progressive and innovative whisky blenders of his generation. "Like a winemaker blending grape varieties, we can create layers of complexity by blending whisky," says Glaser, who was named "Innovator of the Year" four times by Whisky Magazine and "Pioneer of the Year" twice by Malt Advocate. While Glaser initially began his career in the industry as a marketing agent, he quickly realized that by blending quality whiskies, he was able to create a product that was greater than the sum of its rare parts.Compass Box Hedonism is a unique blend of grain Scotch whisky. Nearly a century ago, grain whiskies were common across Europe but were overtaken in terms of popularity when the larger distilleries in Scotland began focusing on single malt whisky. "When good Scotch grain whisky is aged in good quality American oak casks, the results can be stunning," says Glaser.This special expression consists of one-year-old grain spirit from Girvan which was aged in experimental American oak barrels before being put into a refill hogshead for safekeeping. This whisky celebrates ten years of collaboration with the package design company Stranger and Stranger. This intricate and fascinating limited edition has aromas and flavors reminiscent of custard and dark sugars, fresh apple and an appealing herbal character. Pick up your bottle today!
