Compass Box The Spaniard
A sumptuous malt whisky blend, showcasing whiskies aged in Spanish wine casks.
The name is a nod to our founder’s chance encounter with a man in the South of Spain, where he was introduced to Sherry for the first time.
Years later, John was reacquainted with Sherry through whiskies aged in former Sherry casks, known for the rich, deep flavours they provide. It's a style of whisky John has been drawn to ever since.
Released in batches, with the batch number shown on the back label, THE STORY OF THE SPANIARD is our tribute to Sherry's broad spectrum of styles.
You will find a whisky that is full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with flavours of citrus peel and pears poached in red wine and spices.
It’s a whisky ideal for late evening sipping or stirring into a cocktail.
Nose: Ripe blood orange and toasted vanilla pod. A few hints of fresh malt in the background.
