Compass Box Enlightenment, 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This torchbearer for the Compass Box Scotch Whisky Transparency campaign is looking for your support. A fruit medley of lemon, lime, gooseberry cream, and soft pineapple chunks. Ripe apple and pear from the orchard are given a fresh, spicy lift and integrate with the vanilla and sweet toffee notes. It makes a clean exit with lengthy spices and juiciness, never becoming bitter. One thing is clear, it's a finely structured dram worthy of your vote. (5,922 bottles)
