"Vellichor" is a neologism that is used for the nostalgic scent of second-hand bookstores. This expression aims for that very same nostalgia with a blend of several mature whiskies: 2 sherried Speysiders more than 20 years of age, Highland Park, The Macallan, and Caol Ila.

About Compass Box Vellichor Scotch Whisky

Since 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.

Vellichor is a part of their Limited Edition lineup of whiskies based on rare and hard-to-find whiskies. It's here that you'll find some of their most creative expressions. "Vellichor" is a neologism that is used for the nostalgic scent of second-hand bookstores. Crafted by Lead Whisky maker James Saxon, the blend is built around two parcels of Speyside Scotch that were partly matured in sherry casks and more than 20 years of age. The rest of the components come from Highland Park, The Macallan, and Caol Ila. The whisky is bottled at 89.2 proof without chill-filtration and added color. The release is limited to 3,246 bottles.

About Scotch

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.

Leather, old furniture, and old book aromas greet the nose. The palate is malty with plenty of tropical fruit notes and a sherried character. There's delicate peat throughout that lingers on the finish.
