Vellichor

Blended Scotch Whisky

Great whisky should always travel well…

We want everything you purchase to arrive in perfect condition. Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that some Vellichor boxes are becoming damaged in transit. We are really sorry about this and are committed to replacing these with a newly designed box. If that happens to your purchase, please reach out to us at hello@compassboxwhisky.com for more information and we can arrange for a replacement to be sent to you from early May.

Vellichor, n - the scent of second-hand bookshops

On discovering this marvellous new word, we began a quest to recreate the fragrance using Scotch whisky. Parcels were considered, identified and pursued. The process can be compared to scouring second-hand bookshops for specific volumes.

Our search met with success when a distiller and bottler in the north of Scotland offered us casks of whiskies which had been blended together in the past, before being returned to ex-Sherry butts for further maturation. Whiskies, like old books, contain their own stories.

Vellichor

Bottled at 44.6% ABV
Not chill-filtered
Natural colour
Lead Whiskymaker: James Saxon

We combined these Sherry-matured stocks with bold and mature malt whiskies from the Macallan, Highland Park and Caol Ila distilleries. The aroma is highly evocative for anyone with a fondness for books; the taste evolves and intensifies as any good political thriller or historical romance should.

A tribute to the storytelling potential of blended Scotch whisky, and the atmospheres of our favourite book stores.
