Here’s another excellent blended whisky by Compass Box. I’ve tried the ‘Glasgow’ version, which is also fantastic. 93/100 in the Whisky Bible categorises this dram as “brilliant” and the author, Jim Murray, says “a beautiful young thing this blend: nubile, naked and dangerously come hither.” It’s just as well he’s not talking about the Glasgow version. To be naked on Sauchiehall Street on a Saturday night is taking danger to a whole new level!

If Ralfy gives a whisky 90/100 it’s time to sit up and take notice. With words like “cauliflower” and “egg” in his tasting notes it comes as no surprise when he says this bottle of Compass Box is complex. Here is his video:
