Compass Box "Story of the Spaniard" Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1381880 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Based on a bespoke blend made for the New York City restaurant The Spaniard, this permanent addition to the Compass Box portfolio nods to Spain’s wine culture, aging some of the Scotch in former Sherry or Spanish red wine casks. The end result is a honeyed hue and remarkably rich, concentrated aromas of Sherried fruit, orange peel and orange blossom. The vanilla-forward palate is relatively dry, accented with espresso, leather, black pepper and a hint of smoke. (KN)  (12/2019)

K&L Notes

The Story of the Spaniard is the first new release in Compass Box's core range in many years. A blend of malt whiskies matured in a range of Spanish red wine, sherry and virgin French oak, bottled at 43% abv. Producer note: "Released in batches, with the batch number shown on the back label, The Story of the Spaniard is our tribute to Sherry's broad spectrum of styles. 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."

This latest release from Compass Box reflects the mastery of their blending techniques in a bottle everyone can enjoy. Cozy scents of sea air, marzipan and apricot greet you immediately, imploring you to sit and savor the dram. Though relatively light in body, it provides impressive concentration of flavor. Its complex charactger pairs candied citrus and salty caramel with delicate spice and a savory finish. I consider myself fortunate to sample such a friendly, generous whisky; I encourage you to treat yourself to a taste.
