Compass Box Hedonism The Muse Limited Edition Scotch Whisky
In celebration of the many women at Compass Box this flagship limited edition is bottled at 53.3% ABV —the exact percentage of women employed at Compass Box.
Compass Box was founded in 2000 by entrepreneurial visionary John Glaser, in London, England. After being in the wine industry, Glaser made a move to Diageo, where he came into the whisky industry. Compass Box is known to challenge convention and tradition in pursuit of “whisky and its enjoyment.” Located in a seemingly incongruous London England, Compass Box is not a Scottish distiller but a blender of Scottish whiskies, combining the best casks from Islay, Speyside, and the Highlands, and aging them in “a variety of woods from sherry casks to toasted French oak.” Glaser pushes the boundaries of innovation to new levels with his art of “whisky-making.” Seemingly uninhibited by the norms of the formidable Scottish whisky industry, Glaser has proven himself a true alchemist. In 2005, his aptitude for winemaking prompted a disruptive experimental sensation; The Spice Tree release, a blended whisky made using inner staves, or wooden slats inserted into casks to enhance flavor. Winemakers use this technique as a more economical way to add oak flavor wine. Hedonism, is the flagship blended grain Scotch which Compass Box first launched in 2000 when the company was founded. For the first time in the whiskymaker’s history Compass Box employs more women than men. This limited edition blended grain whisky, is in honor of the many women at Compass Box and was released on International Women’s Day. This NAS blended grain whisky also has an even greater depth and intensity than the original. The Muse is bottled at 53.3% ABV: the exact percentage of women employed at Compass Box.

Aromas of vanilla, marzipan and honey on the nose. The palate is full and rounded with very sweet notes. The finish is lingering, echoing the palate with notes of vanilla and marzipan.
