Introducing Compass Box Myths Legends
Designed to challenge the ‘myths and legends’ that are often perceived as the rules of Scotch whisky, discover three new fantastic expressions from the famed blender Compass Box. Available to pre-order from The Whisky Shop. Scroll down to learn more about each expression in the new Myths and Legends series.
The first of the trio has been produced with two parcels of Highland single malt whisky, each from Balblair distillery, but with markedly different flavour profiles. The Whiskymakers believe that the marriage of the parcels in this single malt affords a new understanding of what the distillery can produce. Crafted with 15-year-old, 16-year-old and 22-year-old whisky, this first release is bottled at 46% abv and limited to just 4,394 bottles worldwide.
This release is produced with whiskies of different ages, all distilled at Glen Elgin distillery in Speyside. The Whiskymakers set out to showcase the influence not of region, but of process decisions at the distillery, the effects of maturation, and the choices made in the balance of the final blend. Crafted with whisky ranging from 16 to 23 years old, this second release is bottled at 46% abv and limited to just 4,446 bottles worldwide.
The final entry of the series has been produced with the same parcels of Glen Elgin malt whisky as Myths Legends II, with the addition of liquid from Highland Park and Caol Ila. The Whiskymakers set out to dispel the belief that famous single malts shouldn’t be blended. Crafted with whisky ranging from 15 to 23 years old, this third release is bottled at 46% abv and limited to just 4,564 bottles worldwide.
