About Compass Box Orchard House Blended Malt Scotch WhiskySince its inception in 2000, Compass Box Whisky Company has been stewarded by John Glaser, one of the most progressive and innovative whisky blenders of his generation. "Like a winemaker blending grape varieties, we can create layers of complexity by blending whisky," says Glaser, who was named "Innovator of the Year" four times by Whisky Magazine and "Pioneer of the Year" twice by Malt Advocate. While Glaser initially began his career in the industry as a marketing agent, he quickly realized that by blending quality whiskies, he was able to create a product that was greater than the sum of its rare parts.
Compass Box is a unique blend of grain Scotch whisky. Nearly a century ago, grain whiskies were common across Europe, but were overtaken in terms of popularity when the larger distilleries in Scotland began focusing on single malt whisky. "When good Scotch grain whisky is aged in good quality American oak casks, the results can be stunning," says Glaser. They are strong advocates for quality cask selection. They use only whiskies in their blends that are aged in first-fill American oak casks which tend to yield more vanilla character, richness, and sweetness than the traditionally used casks in Scotch maturation. They also use a high malt content, differentiating themselves from most Scotch whisky producers.
Compass Box Orchard House is a blended malt Scotch that is a fresh addition to their permanent lineup. It's a fruity and spirit-driver expression that was crafted by lead whisky maker James Saxon in 2021. The blend includes several single malts that come from the Linkwood Distillery (39%), the Clynelish Distillery (29%), and the Benrinnes Distillery (20%). Bottled at 92 proof, it's a fragrant, vibrant, bright, and fruity spirit with notes of orchard fruit, pineapple, citrus zest, Earl Grey tea, ginger, honey, and vanilla. It's a non-chill-filtered expression that's bottled without any additional coloring.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
