COMPASS BOX SPICED TREE EXTRAVAGANZA - 70 Cl
A limited edition blended malt from the excellent Compass Box folks, taking inspiration from their cracking (and briefly banned) Spice Tree. They've developed on the recipe by using older components and a generous helping of first-fill-Sherry-butt-matured whisky, as well as whisky matured in their innovative hybrid casks.
|Nose||Waxy orange peel, peppercorn, milk chocolate, Jelly Tots, maybe some Sauternes. Nectarines, too.|
|Palate||A big, punchy opening filled with ginger and poached pear. Develops hints of thyme, clove and Manzanilla sherry.|
|Finish||Oak-y and drying on the finish, with remnants of ginger and clove.|
