Compass Box Juveniles, 46%

Price: $150 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A blend of four single malts for the latest incarnation, this has poached pear, sweet green apple, melon skins, light spices, barley sugar, and yet some crunchy barley notes too. Sweet vanilla fattens out to orange, peppercorn, honey, and barley sugar, with apple and herbal greenery appearing at the end. Hold for at least 30 seconds, then there's spice at the swallow, and a waxy, mouth-coating finish of smooth-pulped fruits. (14,894 bottles)
