Review #543 | /r/Scotch Review #193 – Compass Box Whisky Company Double Single

The Schtick:

Distiller: Various

Bottler: Compass Box

ABV: 46% ABV


Source: Sample

Nose: Apples, honey, vanilla, buttercream, not wildly complex and reminds me of a number of products of theirs.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, apples, honey, faint pepper and smoke. Vanilla, caramel are big

Finish: Medium, some heat, very apple forward, paired with apricot, pepper and the faintest smoke whisp

Overall: Good but not exceptional. Unfortunately a descriptor I’m using more and more often for CB releases

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
