Compass Box The Circle
Sunshine in a Glass.
A vibrant Limited Edition co-created with Rosey Mitchell, the 2018 winner of The Circle, the global programme designed to inspire bartenders.
After impressing Compass Box with her skills and ideas throughout The Circle challenges, Rosey’s prize was to create a blend with Compass Box founder John Glaser and whiskymaker Jill Boyd. Rosey wanted to make an approachable whisky to be shared with friends, something for the daytime, a whisky with brightness. She called it 'sunshine in a glass.'
The Circle is based around a parcel of fruity and creamy single malt from the Tamdhu Distillery in Speyside. This is supported by malt whisky from the Clynelish Distillery. A touch of peated malt whisky from an Orkney distillery and a small proportion of a French oak-finished blended malt whisky complete the recipe.
Made for sharing.
Bursting with apple, vanilla and malty notes. A very delicate hint of smokiness is noticeable on the finish.
Release of 6151 bottles worldwide
Cask types: First Fill Bourbon barrels, refill Sherry butts, recharred American oak hogsheads, and a small proportion of whisky finished in French oak casks with a light toast.
