There are distillates from eg. Deanston, Glen Elgin, Teaninich, Klynelish and Dailuaine, and the whole glory is tapped at 43% alcohol, without dye or cooling filtration.

Color: Deep golden.
Fragrance: mature blood caps, vanilla and light chocolate.

The Password for Compass Box is transparency – something that is not right as is everyday cooking in the modern whiskey industry. On their website ( you have the opportunity to access the recipes in virtually all their blends. And there is more you want to know, you can usually get answers to mail.

It is this ETOS that guides John Glaser when he as “whiskey maker” rocks at the perception of how a blended whiskey is to be made and taste, and it has meant that Compass Box has often been on edge with the easier conservative Scotch Whiservy Association. The most famous case was the first edition of the whiskey The Spice Tree, which was stored in “illegal” dishes with inmate spells of French oak. The recipe for The Spice Tree had Compass Box change, but they have not subjected to the idea that you have to do as you always have done, and continue experimenting and renewing where they can.
