Compass Box Hedonism
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
Elegant flavours of vanilla cream, toffee, coconut. Recommended as an aperitif, serve with a small amount of chilled water. Late in the evening, serve neat. Also makes a great whisky sour. Hedonism is unusual in the Scotch whisky world: a blended grain Scotch whisky. It is very rare to see 100% grain whisky bottlings, in Scotland. Going back 100 years, grain whisky brands were more common, but they were overtaken in popularity by the big brands of blended Scotch, which comprised both grain whisky and malt whisky. Today, most Scotch grain whisky gets blended into the big brand names, typically at young ages. For Hedonism, we search for old casks of Scotch grain whisky. And we only produce Hedonism once a year, when we find casks with the right flavour profile.
