I’m still struggling to post to the platform I chose back in 2004! But I’m still writing notes.
Compass Box, Stranger and Stranger, 46% A⊕+
Body - Soft and creamy, tiny licks of liquorice and charred sandalwood, lots of chocolate covered raisins and brazil nuts. Newly cut cedar wood.
Finish - Medium to short, Hershey's chocolate and a little PX sherry.
Dependably excellent, this is another superb bottling from Compass Box. I adore the balanced blend and whatever the wacky wood was that contributed 1%, it really lifts the overall whisky. Really luxurious and very interesting to drink.
