Description

Compass Box Orchard House breaks the mold when it comes to traditional Scotch whisky. The focus on new spirit maturation and fruity malts creates a unique and delightful flavor profile.

Aroma

An inviting arrival bursts with fresh orchard fruits like apples, pears, and peaches. Hints of citrus zest, like lemon or orange, add a touch of brightness. Subtle honey sweetness emerges, hinting at the use of some aged whiskies in the blend.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a satisfying weight on the tongue. The initial taste is a delightful explosion of fruitiness. Orchard fruits translate beautifully from the aroma, with a vibrant interplay of apple, pear, and peach. A touch of citrus zest dances on the palate, adding a refreshing counterpoint. Honey sweetness emerges, balancing the fruitiness and hinting at the complexity of the blend. The new oak casks might reveal themselves with a subtle hint of baking spice like cinnamon or nutmeg.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a medium-length finish. Hints of fruit and spice linger on the palate. The influence of the new oak casks might become more apparent with a touch of wood tannin, adding a subtle dryness.
