Here's how Compass Box describe themselves and what they do (it's a fair description of the whisky 'zealots')... 'Compass Box is a specialist Scotch whisky company. We are devoted to making some of Scotland's premier whiskies through the art of blending. We work like fine wine negociants. We choose individual casks of whiskies from different distilleries that offer complementary sets of flavours. We carefully blend these casks in small batches to make our proprietary whiskies. We bottle a range of types of Scotch whisky-malt whiskies, grain whisky, malt & grain blends-but at the core of everything is a desire to bring out a purity of flavour, a richness, a drinking experience that will call you back to the glass. To me, this latter point is the true measure of a whisky's quality.
