THE CIRCUS

Blend, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: 51335

A rare combination of cask-aged Blended Scotch and Blended Grain Scotch Whiskies with a small proportion of Highland malt added in for extra depth. The packaging references Charlie Chaplin’s 1929 silent movie of the same name – alluding to the ability of a truly great Circus performance (or whisky) to elevate us for a short while outside of ourselves and raise our eyes upwards to consider horizons new.

Along the lines of its commitment to better transparency in Scotch whisky labeling, Compass Box is revealing the exact component and maturation regimes of its new creation:

  • 57.2% Blended scotch whisky matured in refill sherry butt (dried fruit, almond).
  • 26% Blended grain scotch whisky matured in refill sherry butt (sweet,luscious).
  • 15.4% Benrinnes malt whisky matured in first fill sherry butt (sultanas, hazelnut, maltiness).
  • 1.4% Blended scotch Whisky matured in refill sherry butt (brown sugar, sherry wine).

Style: smooth and complex.

The brand

Merchant

Compass Box is unique in the world of whisky. Founded just over ten years ago, it is a small independent company specialising in the blending of whiskies bought from the main whisky producers. Compass Box has made this its speciality, becoming the master in its fields of blended malts, blended grains and blended whisky, with each category represented in its portfolio. It is also a company with a genuine philosophy, elevating blending to a worthy, noble task, distancing itself from its industrial image and reasserting the value of its craft as a ‘whiskymaker’.
