It’s 2020. It’s December. Let’s shut this year down with a brand new whiskey (or whisky) every day. It’s my own personal whiskey advent calendar. +6! Dec. 19, 2020 I was about to hunt down a particular Compass Point, at the recommendation of @Ctrexman then saw this THREE PACK of Compass Point 50 mLs for just $20. So (kind of) by request, here’s the first of the three. If it’s a winner, I might have to restart the hunt! Nose is delicious. Grape juice, cane sugar, fresh cut grass, in that order. Body gives me sweet cherries, hint of vanilla ice cream on the back end. Finish is sweet grapefruit, slight black pepper. So that was actually phenomenal. I had relatively low expectations for a 50 mL in a “budget” 3-pack, but this is an incredibly complex and juicy whisky. I also don’t have to make any compromises for this one. I would’ve accepted a trash finish for that cherry body, but each part of this drink holds its own independently. Running the math: 750/50*6.66 (repeating of course) = $100 for a 750mL. I don’t know if that’s the actual retail of this scotch, but I’d gladly pay that for this one. ‘Tis the season. I’m day-to-day on my whiskey selection, so if you’re reading this and there’s something readily available out there you’d like me to enjoy/suffer through this holiday season, leave it in the comments. Merry whiskey to all, and to all a beer flight!
