Compass Box Scotch Oak Cross

Compass Box Scotch Oak Cross 750ml    93 
Sku: 1366164

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

We work with a small mill in France that produces some of the highest quality cooperage oak in the world. It was our work with this mill that led us to experimenting with secondary maturation of malt whiskies in casks fitted with new French oak heads. This is something no one else in Scotland does. The result is whisky with more character and complexity. We use this technique on about 40% of the whisky in Oak Cross and it results in a superior finished product.

Tasting notes
On the palate, notes of clove and vanilla accent a sweet maltiness and subtle fruit character.

 OTH 93 points (Aug19 2012)
This has long been a core whisky for Compass Box, but the latest version of it is spicier and fresher than I recall, and without doubt, it’s my new best friend. Virgin French oak heads help to contribute oriental and aromatic spices on the nose, with hints of melon and pineapple candy sweets. The taste is a delight, with spearmint, soft toffee, sweet citrus fruit, lemonade mixed with beer, and strawberry wafers. An array of spices from cinnamon to chili to ginger dominate the finish. (Winter 2012) Reviewed by: Dominic Roskrow

Wine maker notes
Compass Box is a specialist Scotch whiskymaker. With us you will discover a world of small batch Scotch whiskies, made in a variety of styles to appeal to a variety of tastes.

Technical notes
Distillery Sourcing Made entirely of Highland single malt whiskies from the villages of Brora (fruitiness), Carron (meatiness) and Alness (perfume). Wood All the whiskies are aged for their primary maturation in a mix of American oak cask types. The marrying casks are a mix of first-fill Bourbon barrels and our proprietary "Oak Cross” casks made of American and new French oaks. Bottling Details Bottled at 43%. Natural colour. Not chill filtered.

Food pairing
Suitable as an aperitif served with a chilled water in the winter months. Full enough to serve as a summertime digestif. Excellent match for many cheeses.
