Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Gentle and creamy. Chocolate, vanilla and some red fruitiness (raspberry yoghurt?).
Palate: Very soft with great silky texture and a good cinnamon spiciness giving the mid palate a lift.
Finish: Rounded, fruity and soft.
Comment: Subtle and soft are the key words here. Like the best of these whiskies, this might not be as challenging as a peated Islay or sherried Speyside but it is bloody drinkable!
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Perfumy. Vanilla pod. Sweetly appetising.
Palate: Soft. Oaty. A bit empty in the middle.
Finish: A hint of lemon. Cedary, bittersweet, balancing dryness.
Comment: Compass Box knows how to stay on course. Its whiskies are well-judged and consistent.
