Product details

When independent bottler Compass Box was launched in 2000, this blended grain, Hedonism, was its very first release – which goes to show how much its founder John Glaser loves grain whiskies! Blended grains aren’t at all common, but they are indeed delicious.

It’s matured exclusively in American oak barrels, bringing together grain whiskies from a range of distilleries, though we don’t know exactly which ones. Each year the selection changes, though the expert blenders behind the scenes ensure that the flavour profile stays the same – featured whiskies have previously hailed from the now-closed Cameronbridge, Cambus, and Port Dundas distilleries. A sumptuously soft, creamy release that more than showcases the merits of often-overlooked grain whisky.

Nose

Victoria sponge cake with fresh cream and strawberries, leading into vanilla orchid, cookie dough, and Bounty bar.

Finish

Spices appear on the finish, though creme patissiere, coconut, and cinnamon butter keep things creamy.
