Something Quite Magical is Happening in Whisky

Presenting Magic Cask, a Compass Box limited edition built around the magical influence of one exceptional Sherry-seasoned cask.

Some things are so surprising you wonder how they can possibly be true. And that’s exactly what our whiskymakers thought when they sampled cask #2 from our 2016 maturation trials: a robust one-year-old malt spirit re-racked in first fill Oloroso-seasoned butts and aged for a further three years. How could it develop such deliciousness in so little time?

Then, when we blended it with a parcel of first fill Bourbon barrels containing whisky from the now-closed Imperial Distillery, we really did think there were magical forces at work.

Tasting is believing though, and you’ll soon be able to experience it yourself. Magic Cask is being released gradually in regions from now until early February 2021. For those who appreciate lush fruitiness and fullness of body in their malt whiskies, it will be worth waiting for.
