Double Single by Compass Box 53.3%
This was my whisky of the year 2010,
and here is a wee formal review. Not being the most prolific blogger I try to catch up a bit this summer!
Nose : Bubblegum Jenka style. Once I get used to the unusually nose I can really dig into it
Palate : The nose travels over into a dry spicy touch which is kind of a rollercoaster experience tastewise. Very much a bourboncask whisky, with woodspiced vanilla topped up with candy
Finish : Medium-long and spicy/sweet
This is an unusual whisky, and as a prolific whisky DRINKER, I really like when daring bottlings like these are released. It's something unlike everything else I tasted. This says something about a company like Compass Box, who likes to thread paths noone else is going and at the same time make great whiskies. This will not be everybody's cup of Gevalia
I just love bottlings like these
