Thanks for taking part!
We recently invited our newsletter subscribers to have their say on a future limited edition component – offering a choice of three potential peated whiskies to go into 225-litre Marsala barriques for an experimental finishing.
And the results are in…
The winner, as voted for by you, the Compass Box community, is malt whisky from the Laphroaig Distillery.
We’d like to say thank you to everyone that took part. We’re excited to share that the casks were filled in earlier this month (July 2022). Now, it’s over to our Whiskymakers to judge when the whisky has reached its next peaty peak. We’ll keep you posted with an update before the end of the year so stay tuned!
About the winning whisky...
Distilled at the Laphroaig Distillery in 2005, and originally filled into recharred hogsheads, this potent single malt offers seaweedy and herbal flavours, with a bitter smokiness. We have already deployed other casks from this parcel in No Name, No. 3 and Flaming Heart 2022 (more on that release coming soon!). We see its savoury peatiness nestling into the ripe red fruit notes of the Marsala casks very nicely for a delicious balancing of contrasts. As for the finished result? We are just as excited to find out as you are…
