General description

Vanilla, banana and coconut creme on the nose. Silken entry on the palate with vanilla, oak and spices. The medium length finish has some spice and dry oaky notes. There's some astringency throughout that holds this back from a better score.

General description

good stuff. beautiful nose, incredibly floral. The name of the game on the palette is subtlety. Nice floral, vanilla, and spice. Medium finish. Overall, too subtle for my tastes, but some might prefer it.

General description

sweet and vanilla, with a lot of play between the ex bourbon and French casks that really show complexity

General description

Had the pleasure of winning a bottle courtesy of whiskey suggest. Found it had a slightly bitter finish but with a dash of water it was smooth to drink. Wouldn't necessarily buy this one again but would try the rest of the compass box range

Very nice for a blended scotch. I have a very limited experience with Compass Box offerings, but so far I've liked what I've sampled.
