Compass Box, The Spice Tree, 46 %

Review #161
A blended malt, which has some of the flavor from virgin French oak. Vanilla, rubbery notes, ginger, black pepper and gentle oak in the smell. A whisky where you just keeps getting more and more smells the longer you are sitting.

It is only 46 % but still has a bit of a kick at first in the taste. A lot of malt and there is a reason why it is called The Spice Tree. The finish stays for quite a while and you get some peppery notes, burned oak and lot of different spices and herbs.

A pretty complex whisky with a lot of different smells and tastes. Give it some minutes in the glass and you will notice some new stuff. Give it some water and more new stuff will appear. I will give this 86/100 (21/21/21/23).
