Compass Box "Myths & Legends III" Blended Malt Scotch Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1447462

You'd have to be crazy to put together Highland Park, Caol Ila and Glen Elgin in a blend. But no one ever said the minds at Compass Box were sane. Enjoy the fruits of their creativity. From Compass Box: Myths & Legends III The Scotch Myth: Whiskies from cult distilleries should not be used for blending. As we see it: We believe that a distillery’s name should be no barrier to creating delicious whiskies. In the Compass Box Blending Rooms, many of the cask samples we hold from famous distilleries reveal more compelling sides to themselves after being blended with other whiskies. We disregard distillery reputation, focusing only on the quality of the whisky as a blending component.

In a lot of ways this whisky is in the quintessential style that we've come to know an love from Compass Box. Taking the rich fruit and malt from M&L II and adding the slight peated sherry component is proof that the myth of the blend is honest fact. Just the tiniest adjustment from the excellent II and we're in a completely different territory. For me this is what blended malt is all about. Compounding the many wonderful different flavors that single malt can offer into one seamless and complete package. Expect a nose of deep earthy heather pointed by dried orchard fruits. The peat is so perfectly integrated on the nose it's hard to necessarily pick it out from the other flavors, but it acts as glue to hold the whole thing in line. On the palate a sweet smoke is front and center, before melding into a vibrant bouquet of sweet yellow fruit and salty malt. A total dream.

The only blended malt in the Myths and Legends lineup. M&L III takes parcels of the Glen Elgin from M&L II and enhances them further with 23 year old Highland Park in recharred American and 15 year old Caol Ila in sherry. Once again, John Glaser forces you to reconsider your ideas about whisky. Many folks will scream that it would have been better to bottle that HP or Caol Ila on its own. Surely they're spectacular single malts. But John has devoted his entire career to creating something so much more than the sum of it's parts. The salt, floral, and smoke components of Highland Park and the fruity/smoky combination that is Caol Ila mesh so well with the butterscotch and baked fruit notes of the Glen Elgin, that its almost impossible to argue this whisky shouldn't have been made. It's a purely hedonistic exercise in a glass.
