Compass Box – The Spice Tree

by Oliver Klimek on July 25, 2010

The second edition made with re-charred cask lids – 46%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark Amber
Nose: Orange peel, nutmeg, cloves, a hint of raisins.
Palate: Orange peel, toffee, nutmeg, toasted nuts, slightly bitter.
Finish: Medium long and spicy, ends with a whiff of smoke.
Overall: This blended malt has a very intriguing nose, but even at 46% the palate is slightly disappointing and the finish is a bit short. But the promised spices are surely present.

Rating: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Available at the Whisky Exchange
