    Nose: banana, pear, tropical fruit Palate: peat, hints of coffee and chocolate, banana, butterscotch, caramel, like Coffee flavored nips. Balanced and smooth but very light Finish: light black licorice, nice and light, maybe slight eucalyptus. Good starting whisky to open the palate but perhaps a bit bland

    Non-Chill Filtered | Natural Color. Poured neat the nose comes at you with peat smoke but tempered with some grilled fruit and malt. Barrel notes lurk in the back. This is a nice full aroma without grain ruining the day. Palate is bursting with flavor. Charred fruit and malt with blast of sweet smoke and sooty ash alongside oaky tannins. Finish is heavy char and oak with the fruits and malt hanging in there. Superb blend, grain notes are hidden so well one could easily mistake this for single malt. Flavor is cohesive and deep. You get plenty of smoke/ sherry combined and balanced leading to a truly enjoyable experience. Paid $37 for this and no regrets..........89/100 blend score. Very interested in the Compass Box range now. Better than age statement JWB12 and Dewars12

    Compass Box is rightly recognized for putting out consistently excellent blended Scotch Whisky. One could argue they really helped to start to shift the perception that a blended Scotch is inherently inferior to a Single Malt. More often than not the rare and expensive Compass Box releases get a lot of hype but tonight I want to highlight and review one of their cheapest blends and it's excellent! The make up of this blend is as follows: Blend: 34% Grain (Cameron Bridge) & 66% Malt (35% Benrinnes, 17% Laphroaig, 8% Clynelish, 2% Miltonduff, 4% Highland Malt (60% Clynelish, 20% Dailuaine, 20% Teaninich)) Cask: ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, Rejuvenated Hogshead, French Oak Hybrid Age: NAS ABV: 43% Non-Chill Filtered | Natural Color Let's move to the tasting! It's a rich palette featuring smoke, honey, fruit and some caramel. This leads to a lengthy smoke, grilled fruit and vanilla driven finish. Really lovely. All in all it's fairly simple but damn tasty. For around $30 or less it's an excellent value. Cheers All!

    This is absolutely great for the price point. The nose is nicely smokey with some sweet sherry notes. The palate definitely has some salt and peat and it's quite fruity, almost like a little bit of strawberry jam. There is also a sharp, pronounced peppery bite that is a big part of the finish. It feels a little thin on the tongue, but the flavor is fairly intense and enjoyable and clocking in at just $30, I'd be hard pressed to find a single malt that's as good with spending at least another $15 on the bottle. Not sure what the smoke in this is coming from, but I wouldn't be surprised if this has some Talisker or something from Islay as a part of it's backbone.

    They say "bold and peatey" and they ain't kidding. It is bold, but also quite smooth.

    For a $30 bottle, this scotch is well worth it. Great entry into peated scotch.

    On the nose, chocolate, lemon infused raisins with a spray of salt and smoke. On the palate, cashews, a dash of honey, minty, fresh fruit and a very creamy mouthfeel that wraps up with a little savoury spice. A delicious, if somewhat short finish of smoke, vanilla, oak and salty.

    Strong band-aid scent dominates the nose initially, peat smoke emerges next with some stone fruit subtly in the background, the palate is rich, buttery and smooth with some honey and faint caramel notes, a hint of smoke appears late in the spicy medium finish.

    This blend has a smooth and even peat smoke taste. It’s not too overpowering and is perfectly balanced. Easy to sip on neat. I would drink again!
