Compass Box Introduces Us To Some Crimson Casks


"When our forest king emerges from the trees, take note of his crown of oak. A crown we gave him in honour of the transformative influence wood has over our realm of flavour, and the magic of metamorphosis he brings to our blending table.

His crimson touch is magisterial. Power. Balanced by a benevolent generosity that says "what's mine is yours - enjoy..." So, will you do him the honour?"


Popular blended Scotch whisky independent bottler and blender Compass Box is getting ready some Crimson Casks! These seem to be some spicy and intense Sherried whiskies on their hands!



Tasting Notes

Chocolate fudge cake undercut with clove and cardamom, with notes of plum jam and redcurrant jelly, then rich cherry, toffee and oak. With final notes of raisin, honey and brown sugar.


The new Compass Box Crimson Cask sees parcels of Scotch whiskies matured in American Oak sherry butts with what appears to be a focus on Oloroso Sherry and is bottled at 46% ABV.
