From Compass Box: Since we launched the Compass Box Whisky Company in 2000, we have always believed there can be a certain elegance in excess.
Our first bottling – the original Hedonism – explored a brave new world of flavour previously uncharted in the world of Scotch.
Eight years later, with Hedonism Maximus we used exclusively older, rarer whiskies in pursuit of the indulgent, unctuous, august pleasure that we knew only mature stock could deliver.
In this our fifteenth anniversary year, we felt it was time to go back to where it all started for Compass Box and reinvent Hedonism once more for a very limited edition celebratory bottling.
Master of Malt describes it as a blended grain whisky, and in their usual rule-bending fashion, they have revealed its recipe:
So, it’s a 20 year old blended grain whisky, with almost two thirds of the spirit coming from closed distilleries. This is the kind of detail that got CB into trouble with the SWA - no, not THIS SWA, THAT SWA.
46% ABV / 70cl
