Compass Box is unique in the world of whisky. Founded just over ten years ago, it is a small independent company specialising in the blending of whiskies bought from the main whisky producers. Compass Box has made this its speciality, becoming the master in its fields of blended malts, blended grains and blended whisky, with each category represented in its portfolio. It is also a company with a genuine philosophy, elevating blending to a worthy, noble task, distancing itself from its industrial image and reasserting the value of its craft as a ‘whiskymaker’.
MARRYING CASK Glasgow Blend Cameronbridge Finish LMDW15
Formerly known as Great King Street Glasgow Blend, this expression boasts a high single malt content. Inclusion of malt whisky matured in Oloroso Sherry-seasoned butts, and an Islay single malt of a powerfully peaty nature, has made this a blended Scotch whisky like no other.
The 6th Single Cask release in our 15th Anniversary range, this unique bottling was created especially from a Single Marrying Cask used to mature whisky after initial blending has taken place… an ode to the lost art of secondary maturation that used to be commonplace in Scotch.
Tasting notes: Full, rich and smoky on the palate, with notes of sticky toffee pudding, Sherry wine character and impressions of a coal fire.
