Compass Box The Spice Tree

An especially made cask mix is used for the Compass Box Spice Tree. With drum covers from French and the body from American oak, those casks were strongly toasted at Spice Tree. The Whisky also matured longer than normally. The used Single Malts all came from the Highlands. The independent bottler Compass Box is calling itself 'Whiskymaker' and sees itself more as a Whisky artist than as a producer. The Team around John Glaser is always trying to go new ways. Along the way, the process of production is made transparent to the customers.

Innovation, courage and the forces of evil. We all love a good story, and Compass Box's clash with the SWA regarding Spice Tree and the use of inner staves is almost legendary. On the nose, a potpourri of herbal and spicy flavors is enriched by grapefruit, toffee and candle wax. The punchy and aromatic arrival is led by chili pepper, ginger and a good amount of oak. Sweet and sour notes creep in, followed by lemon zest, nutmeg and parsley. Walnuts, resin and distant vanilla mark the long and peppery-dry finish. Kudos to John Glaser for creating this malt!
