Compass Box "Glasgow Blend" K&L Exclusive Craigellachie Aged Oloroso Marrying Cask #1 Blended Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1571900

This spectacular cask is the Compass Box equivalent of a single barrel - but so much more complex. How does Compass Box, a blending house, produce a single barrel but still impart their magic while also offering a unique product? The marrying cask of course. After the peaty, high malt content, Glasgow Blend is put together, the whisky gets redistributed into its original casks for months or even years of marrying. Each cask then contains the same blended whisky but over time they evolve into unique single barrels that highlight the notes originally contributed by that cask. In our case - we've selected an Oloroso Sherry seasoned butt from Craigellachie that housed the peaty Glasgow blend. It's a doozy. All that rich salty peat (nearly 20% of Glasgow Blend is Laphroaig) is amplified by the extra time in sherry providing an even rounder and richer dark chocolate and raisin profile that meshes perfectly with that intense smoke and maritime influence of one of Islay's finest. The marrying cask is then bottled at a much higher proof than the typical Glasgow blend, and of course, like all Compass Box bottlings, it is unchillfiltered and is not colored. The youngest spirit in this bottling was distilled 4/10/13. The marrying cask was filled 1/29/19 and it married for 2.5 years before being bottled for K&L.
