Compass Box Hedonism The Muse
I collect C.B. releases, and this is up there with one of my all time favorites. Silky smooth, buttery, and everything amazing a single grain can be.
This is the grain whiskey you want, it's absolutely fantastic, I'm filled with joy every time I pour a glass. It's not a big bold whiskey but what it is, is far from bland. It's silky and creamy in the mouth with amazing flavors of coconut, vanilla, and cream. A small dash of water and after a little while sitting in the glass it becomes more complex all the while retaining its lovely mouth feel. Hedonism, you are a gift!
The nose takes time to develop, then the coconut really hits you. It's an unusual whiskey with a full-flavor – coconut, vanilla, coffee, licorice, and crème brûlée, with an emphasis on the coconut. Compass Box Hedonism is rad.
