A terrific offering from one of the most exciting whisky companies in the business, Compass Box.
It's a singles night at Compass Box, and they've introduced this lovely couple to one another: a single malt Speysider from Glen Elgin, and a very mature single grain from Girvan.
The Glen Elgin provides 72% of the blend, whilst the Girvan supplies the remainder.
The Double Single offers up notes of: sweet chocolate, freshly baked pastry, salted caramel, vanilla custard, bright oak, sweet grain, nutmeg, overripe bananas and flamed orange peel.
Bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration, this is a rich and satisfying blend with a medium body.
Whilst many blended whiskies use dozens of different malts and grains in their recipe, Compass Box have shown that sometimes, less is more.
The two Singles are beautifully depicted as a pair of happy-go-lucky frogs who, much like the spirit itself, have captured our hearts.
