Compass Box have a great reputation for producing some of the best blended Scotch whiskies on the market. This is no exception, an excellent blended whisky that reflects the spirit of Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. This is demonstrated by the label, which features the famous statue of the Duke of Wellington, complete with the infamous traffic cone, a symbol of the city’s irreverent attitude to authority and humour. Glasgow sits on the border between the Highlands and the Lowlands, with the Islands just a little to the city’s west. As such the make up of this blend reflects the city’s central position, with 33% being grain whisky from the Lowlands, and the remainder being malt whisky from the Highlands and Islay. The whisky has been aged in a mixture of first-fill and refill Bourbon casks and first-fill Sherry barrels. A small amount of spirit is also aged in new French oak casks, for extra complexity. The result is a lovely, malty, fruity and slightly smoky whisky, with a delicious richness. Bottled at 43% ABV for a little extra kick, this is another superb blend from Compass Box.
