Description

This is not a luxury whisky. Or is it?

The inspiration for this limites release is Rene Magritte's 1929 work "Ceci n'est pas une pipe", a Surrealist painting which challanges peoples' perceptions of reality.

The reality is, these days we hear more and more commentators talking about 'luxury' whiskies which are presumably whiskies that are either rare or expensive, or possibly both.

On another level, a level considered to be much more important, this limited release is all about the liquid, about the whisky in the bottle, which has been painstakingly sourced and blended and the engravement and enjoyment of this whisky will bring when shared with others.

This latter point is what we believe a 'luxury' whisky is and at Compass Box, this is what it believed that whisky, generally speaking is all about.

Availability:
Limited Edition release of 4,992 bottles.

Tasting Notes

Complex, rich, lightly smoky and opulent. Sultanas, sweet sherry and concentrated floral notes combine with deep demerara sweetness, cacao and lighter creamy coconut character. An inviting nose, fat and full-bodied on the palate with a long, lingering sweet-smoke finish.

Recommendations:
This particular luxury has been designed to be consumed, not preserved on a shelf. Use it to celebrate life's little victories - a new job, a chance meeting with a friend or the conclusion of an enjoyable dinner. Above all else, share and enjoy!

One of the best. I'm a single malt drinker most of the time, usually sticking with Islays [read: "Lagavulin"], but John Glaser has opened my palette to the true artistry of Compass Box. "Luxury" is a crowning achievement. It's perfectly balanced while completely seducing any lover of peated whiskies. It's mature, rich, smoky and refined. Worth the price, especially as a special occasion or once in a while type of dram. It's worth hanging onto for a while because each time you revisit it, you realize how special it is. Find this whisky. Enjoy those moments. Superb.
