Compass Box Rogues' Banquet, 46%

Price: $230 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

With its nose of honey, green apple, lemon, and fragrant spices, this kicks off Compass Box's 20th anniversary celebration. Blended by lead whisky maker James Saxon, it has an unctuous, luxurious texture, malty and sweet, with dark toffee, gingersnaps, cinnamon, lemon zest, dried tropical fruits, and vanilla cream. The gentle spices ebb and flow, finishing on a last hurrah of dark cookies and vanilla. (2,400 bottles for U.S.) Collectible
