Compass Box The Spaniard Scotch Whisky

Compass Box The Spaniard Scotch Whisky...$59.99
Introducing our new malt whisky blend, showcasing whiskies aged in Spanish wine casks.  Inspired by an eponymously named bespoke whisky we recently created for a bar in New York City called The Spaniard, we decided to explore the sherried style further to create a new whisky for our permanent range.   The name is a nod to our founder’s chance encounter with a man in the South of Spain, where he was introduced to Sherry for the first time.

Bottled at 43%
Not chill filtered
Natural colour

In this, our first release, 48% of the whiskies have been aged in ex-Sherry casks and 25% in ex-Spanish red wine casks. You will find a whisky that is full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with flavours of citrus peel and pears poached in red wine and spices. It’s a whisky ideal for late evening sipping or stirring into a cocktail.
