Compass Box Spice Tree Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Today, Spice Tree Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is a blend of 10 — 12 year old single malt Scotch whiskies sourced from distilleries situated in the northern Highlands region of Scotland (primarily Clynelish, Dailuaine, Longmorn, and Teaninich). After sourcing the whisky, Glaser blends the single malts together and then ages the blend for an additional two years in custom-made first-fill bourbon hogsheads casks.
Rather than use the flat stave inserts that got him in trouble earlier, Glaser worked with an oak supplier in France and a cooper in Scotland to develop a method for creating heavily toasted cask heads which impart a flavor profile similar to the flat staves used for the original Spice Tree bottlings. "The cask heads have three different levels of toasting," says Glaser, "allowing us to blend the resultant whiskies to create additional layers of complexity." After aging the blend for an additional two years, each batch of Compass Box Spice Tree Whisky is brought to proof and bottled.
Spice Tree Blended Malt Scotch Whisky has an aroma of ginger, cinnamon and clove, which give way to bold notes of vanilla, malt, and brown sugar, along with a hint of dried fruits. The finish, which is long and satisfying, is well-balanced between sweet notes of vanilla and spicy notes of cinnamon and allspice.
Spice Tree Whisky earned 95.5 points from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, and earned the title "Best Scotch New Brand" in 2011.
