Compass Box Spice Tree Extravaganza (46%)

R1,950.00

The Extravaganza celebrates the 10 year anniversary of the legendary Spice Tree release. This was famously banned by the Scotch Whisky Association due to un-traditional maturation methods when it was first released. The new expression is a blend of three single malts – Allt-a-Bhainne, Benrinnes and Glen Ord – and three pockets of ‘Highland Malt Blend’ (consisting of whiskies from Clynelish, Dailuaine and Teaninich) that have been matured in ‘hybrid’ casks. This is a limited edition release and there are just 12,240 bottles available, which is presented in special commemorative packaging.

Inspired by Compass Box’s regular Spice Tree, Spice Tree Extravaganza takes the idea and runs with it, adding older and more sherry-cask-matured whisky to create an even richer and spicier combination with an elegant character.

Region:
Other Scotch Whisky

Aroma:
The sherry is apparent – full bright red fruits, with a hint of darker preserves. A blanket of vanilla cake frosting pervades all, but is studded with cloves and wisps of sandalwood.

Flavours:
Full bodied. Beeswax (Clynelish), but with a huge spike of baking spices (clove, cinnamon, mace, and especially nutmeg) and fresh hay.

Character:
Of medium length. Nutty, with more jam notes.
