Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Compass Box Artist Blend is a Scotch blended whisky, created as a tribute to Edinburgh; a city full of painters, writers, street performers and other artists. And of course filled with whiskey!
Artist Blend is composed of several components, and since Compass Box is one of the few bottlers willing to share the otherwise often secret recipe, we can tell you quite precisely what it is made of: just under half consists of grain whiskey from the Cameronbridge warehouse on first-fill bourbon barrels, plus 10% malt whiskey from Clynelish and 10% from Balmenach, both aged in first-fill bourbon casks, while Linkwood contributes malt whiskey from both bourbon casks (22%) and sherry casks, seasoned with the rare sherry -type Palo Cortado (5%). The remaining 8% is a Highland blend that is aged in specially toasted new French oak casks.
Colour: Light golden.
Smell: Delicious smell of malt and freshly baked apple pie. Some cinnamon and burnt oak in the background.
Tasting notes: Firm and juicy, with notes of vanilla, apples, sweet licorice and grass.
Serving suggestions: Can be enjoyed neat or in cocktails.
