Just as the name suggests, this is a spicy devil. A carefully mastered blend of 10 to 12-year-old Highland single malts that focuses on brand new toasted barrel heads and first fill American oak. This vatted malt shows off layered aromas of clove, cinnamon, toasted nuts with a core of caramel apple. The palate weight is balanced between luxurious and sophisticated with a finish that leaves you begging for more. If you fancy Mr. Walker's labels, then this is a 'whisky lover's blend' that you're going to love. You can thank us for the introduction later.
There are some people in the spirits business who are cut from a different cloth, Compass Box's founder and master blender John Glaser is one of those folks. After many years in the wine trade, he entered the Scotch whisky business with Johnnie Walker, where he honed his palate and helped develop the renowned Green and Gold labels. Somewhat frustrated with the limitations of the corporate world, he felt compelled to follow his passion for making great blends. He started Compass Box to, as he states, "nurture the roots of tradition in order to grow the possibilities." An artist, visionary and one hell of a whisky "blendologist," he has successfully conjured up some of the biggest, baddest and sexiest drams we've tasted.
