Compass Box you say?

Edinburgh Whisky Blog Compass Box tasting at the Vintners Rooms in Leith. Ok, so you know what Edinburgh Whisky Blog is (If you are reading this and don’t know, have a look at our about us section). The Vintners rooms is an Italian Restaurant in Leith which has a ridiculous collection of whiskies to try by the dram (1300 malts plus 300 blends on the way). All sorted. But wait a minute, what or who is Compass Box?

Compass Box is an independent bottling company and Artisan blender. They challenge the status quo with new ideas and a questioning nature when it comes to the ‘rules’ . Lucas and I like their style and attitude, so it fits quite nicely that we can do a tasting for them.

We will be tasting their three most controversial whiskies as part of our tasting at 7pm on November 8th (5 pounds for the tasting, all the money going to charity) Hedonism, Spice Tree and Orangerie. Well, I say whiskies. 2 of them are classed as whiskies. Orangerie is a Scotch Whisky infused with Orange zest and peel. Spice tree is a whisky, but it uses ultra toasted oak, which is quite a new idea and Hedonism is a blended Grain Whisky. All quite different, I think you will agree. I am sure they are the Scotch Whisky Associations favourites anyway!
