Compass Box Menagerie, 46%

Price: $120 Issue: Summer 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




The aromas comprise golden syrup, toasted oats, and hard toffee under muscular flavors of nduja and mint sauce on lamb cold cuts. Heavyset on the palate, with abundant dried fruits, honey, butterscotch, chile heat, ginger, and clove, it opens up dense baked orange flavors ahead of a robust finish, with citrus peel and ground ginger. If you relish meaty Speyside single malts like Benrinnes and Mortlach, this one's for you. (7,741 bottles)
