THE STORY OF THE SPANIARD 43%
Blended Malt Whisky, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: 55064
A long time ago, Compass Box's whisky maker, Jon Glaser and a friend of his journeyed through the South of Spain, stopping by every little village bar. In one place, an elderly man took it upon himself to teach tehm about the local Sherry wines. They captured Jon Glaser's imagination with their nutty, saline character and tremendous spectrum of style. Years later, when her discovered Scotch whisky, he was reacquainted with Sherry through whiskies aged in former Sherry casks, which are known for the rich, deep flavours they provide. He's been drawn to this style of whisky ever since. Inspired by an eponymously named bespoke whisky they recently created for a bar in New York City called The Spaniard, Compass Box decided to explore this style further to create a malt whisky blend with its core whiskies aged in Spanish Sherry and Spanish red wine casks.
Profile: Full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with flavours of citrus peel and pears poached in red wine and spices. The finish is long, with hints of rich vanilla panna cotta, ripe berries and cherries.

La boîte était abimée à l'arrivée et ce n'est pas dû au transporteur
