Compass Box Hedonism 2024 Limited Release

New Limited Release
Compass Box Hedonism Scotch 2024 Limited Release....$129.99
Our Celebration of the Deliciousness of Grain Whisky
  • Cameronbridge Distillery
  • Port Dundas
  • The Girvan Distillery
In 2000, John Glaser created the first ever Blended Grain Whisky released to the market. He called it Hedonism.
The Scotch whisky landscape was changed forever.
Over the past 23 years, Hedonism has remained a core part of the Compass Box brand, winning numerous awards and becoming a staple in many whisky fans’ cabinets.
The calibre of whiskies we need for Hedonism have grown ever harder to find, which is why our first ever expression will become a Limited Annual Release going forward. For the first batch we have turned to more mature whiskies aged almost entirely in first-fill Bourbon barrels.
Bottled at 43% ABV
Not chill-filtered
Natural Colour
Lead Whiskymaker: James Saxon

Hedonism 2024 contains the last of our stocks of grain whiskies distilled in the 1990s, a period when some of the distilleries featured used maize in their mashes. This brings an enhanced buttery weight to the overall composition.  You can expect a complex array of patisserie aromas, with exotic vanilla and clove-infused caramel. Layers of creamy custard arrive on the palate, with accents of honey and mascarpone. At the finish, a delicate citrus accent appears.

This wine is very fresh on the nose with the classic Sauvignon characteristics of gooseberries. Dry and full bodied, its finish is long and mellow with just a hint of citrus. The wine is made with very low yields from 25 year old vines. This crisp, summery white wine is an excellent pair with oysters, asparagus side dishes, grilled fish, lean white meats and hard cheeses.

Our best selling Pouilly Fume!
Richer styled Sauvignon Blanc
2022 Cedrick Bardin Pouilly Fume...$27.99
The shiny golden robe gives place to an elegant nose of ripe peach and apricot with a hint of white flower and soft cinnamon spice aromas. The limestone and flinty siliceous soil impart somewhat of a gun-flinty quality on the nose. On the palate, the attack is fresh and supple with great volume and complexity mid-palate.
The minerality in this Pouilly Fume pair nicely with shrimp and other creamy seafood or pasta dishes as well as with pesto crostini or herbed goat cheese appetizers. It also pairs well with  baked ham or even a ham sandwich with mustard…preferably French;) Perfect for Easter

A chewy, toothsome, table friendly French red that is an easy choice for a meaty Mediterranean meal."
Rated 93/100 Beverage Testing Institute

2022 Isabel Ferrando Beatusille Cotes du Rhone Rouge...$35.99
Brilliant ruby-red. Fresh and energetic on the nose, displaying intense red fruit preserve and floral scents and a suggestion of white pepper. Juicy and supple on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a refreshingly bitter blood orange nuance. Fine grained tannins build slowly through a long, sappy finish that leaves behind a suave lavender note. Great with cheese!

The grapes for this wine are organically grown in sandy clay soil in two different parcels: 4 hectares surrounding the domaine; and 4.5 hectares in the quarter called le Moulinas.

They are de-stemmed and crushed, followed by maceration in temperature controlled tanks. The two grape varietals are vinified separately based on the time at which they are harvested. This ensures that each grape variety is brought in and vinified at optimal maturity. The wine rests in tank and is racked 2 to 3 times over the winter. The wine is certified organic by Ecocert

2019 Xavier Vignon Cotes Du Rhone Vieilles Vignes...$24.99
The deep black-cherry and ripe-blackberry fruit, plus the full, soft body push this to the edge of sweetness on the palate. However, the gentle dry tannins at the velvety finish just keep it on track. A style that now seems a bit dated, but plenty of wine drinkers love this. Drink now."
