Compass Box "Delilah's XXV Special Edition" Blended Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1369000 97 points Wine Enthusiast

 A collaboration to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Chicago whiskey bar Delilah’s, this burnished- gold whiskey has a fresh apples-and pear aroma softened by a hint of butterscotch. The light, smooth palate unfolds toasty oak, vanilla, fresh pear, hints of gingery spice and a faint whiff of smoke— amazingly, every sip is different, right into the elongated finish. Limited edition, 8,520 bottles available worldwide; new to U.S. starting June 2018.  (12/2018)

K&L Notes

Happy 25th Anniversary, Delilah’s! From John Glaser: "Behind the bar at Delilah’s, you will find hundreds of bottles of whisky from around the world, but not a trophy in sight. These are whiskies meant for drinking. Everything is open, or can be opened. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the legendary Chicago punk rock whisky bar this summer, we have once again created a limited edition Scotch whisky in collaboration with owner and whisky enthusiast, Mike Miller. The recipe for our second Compass Box homage to Delilah’s was built around a small parcel of the original Compass Box Delilah’s blend released in 2013 - a luscious, American oak-aged whisky that we aged in cask for a further five years. With this as a base, Mike suggested adding malt whisky aged in Spanish Sherry casks, also made of American oak. The result is a delicious Scotch whisky with notes of vanilla and spice, and rich Sherry character. It’s another incarnation of the shared vision Mike and I have for whiskies that everyone can appreciate and enjoy! You can drink your whisky any way you like, surrounded by a passionate community of people. And people from all over the world stop by to take up that offer."

With each new special edition Compass Box, distiller master John Glaser seems more and more like a veritable Alchemist. Delilah XXV actually uses the 2013 Delilah XX blend as its base (28%), having aged in a Spanish sherry cask these last five years. It is then blended with Miltonduff, Teaninich, Linkwood and ‘malt whisky made near the town of Aberlour’, plus grain whisky from the Cameronbridge distillery. The result is a stunning sherried blend whose opulence is matched only by its complexity. On the nose, notes of dried apricots, tropical fruits, vanilla, caramel apple, and just a passing hint of smoke. On the palate, the robust sherry wood profile is highlighted by notes of clove and cinnamon, with lifted flavors of peaches and cream. The spicy fruit profile stays on the palate for ages. While most limited edition Compass Box bottles fly out the door pretty fast, I expect this one won't even last that long. Get yours!
