Expert Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Introducing Compass Box Delos Scotch Whisky—an intricately constructed masterpiece that echoes the artisanal devotion and craftsmanship synonymous with the Compass Box name. This exquisite blended Scotch is an orchestration of selected malts and grains from diverse regions of Scotland, each contributing to an unparalleled symphony of flavors.
Upon uncorking, the aroma envelops the senses in an opulent bouquet of ripe orchard fruits—think golden apples and succulent pears—backed by the subtlety of nuanced oak and a touch of coastal salinity. Light floral notes of heather and a sprinkle of cinnamon add layers of complexity.
The first sip graces the palate with an explosion of flavors—fruity undertones of apple and dried apricot intertwine with the sophisticated richness of caramel and vanilla. Mid-palate, the whisky introduces itself with a peppery zest and layers of complex spices, balanced by a creamy, almost buttery, mouthfeel.
Delos rounds off with an elongated, warming finish replete with nuanced spices and dark chocolate. The waning moments leave a tingling sensation that hints at oak and sea salt, a beautiful lingering contrast that invites you to the next sip.
This blended Scotch whisky offers an extraordinary pairing experience with aged cheeses and rich, meaty dishes. Its palate complexity makes it equally enjoyable either neat or as the basis of a highly sophisticated cocktail.
