Compass Box Orchard House - Compass Box Orchard House Scotch Whiskey is an exceptionally fruit-forward blended malt from Compass Box. Featuring whiskies from the likes of Clynelish, Linkwood, Benrinnes, and more, this expression offers up oodles of lip-smacking fruit notes, making for an astonishing post-prandial dram.
Nose: very bright and fruity indeed. Juicy pears and peaches, with hints of grapes, lemons and green apples. Also vanilla and mint, as well as light blossomy touches. Young but vibrant, with a subtle waxy side that hints at Clynelish. In terms of fruitiness this is spot on.
Mouth: still this light and fruity profile, not too sweet, albeit with a stronger boozy side. Hints of grappa and fruit eau-de-vie. Green apple, peach and pear again, with waxy notes, citrus peel, white pepper and light oak. Hints of ginger, raw malt and vanilla.
Finish: not too long, on soft spice, honey and orchard fruits.
