‘How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you was?’ – Satchel Paige
So, another new whisky from John Glaser and Compass box, after the excellent Spice Tree extravaganza, comes this 3 year old whisky. You got to love compass box and Mr. Glaser for taking old whiskies, and mixing in a wee part of 3 year old whisky, then selling it at over 200 Eur, making it the most expensive 3 year old whisky I’ve seen. most distilleries create NAS whiskies to hide the age of the whisky, and Compass box do the opposite, this is hillarious, and good fun. From first sniff it is clear this is ultra deluxe stuff, and compass box are just saying “In your face! whisky industry!”. HA!
So, clearly this is not a 3 yo, and it contains some older stuff. to be more exact (as far as SWA says is legal) : This whisky is composed of less than 1% three year-old malt whisky produced near the village of Brora (Clynelish distillery), 90% malt whisky of an unstated age from the same distillery and around 9% peaty malt whisky distilled on the Isle of Skye (Talisker, if you wish). Let’s dive in.
