|Production Notes||This peated blended malt whisky is made with two single malts from Islay. The recipe breakdown is 64% Caol Ila and 35% Laphroaig, both matured in refill hogsheads. Additionally, 1% of the blended malt whisky includes a blend of single malts from the Highlands which matured in custom French oak barrels with a heavy toast. The malts were married together for several months before bottling without added color or chill-filtration at 46% ABV.|
Compass Box is a Whiskymaking (a word they coined) enterprise that champions blending. It was started in 2000 by John Glaser, an American living in the UK who felt Scotch had become a bit boring. He wanted to shake things up, so he took a different tack to share the joys of whisky with more people. He decided to model Compass Box after the long lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, with a fierce commitment to quality first and foremost, with creativity and innovation close behind.
