Compass Box Hedonism Blended Grain Scotch Whisky 43% 70cl
Compass Box was founded by entrepreneur John Glaser in 2000 - formerly a marketing director for the Johnnie Walker brand, the American has becoming a controversial figure within the whisky industry. However, his controversy is more to do with tradtionalists who are shaken by his determination to highlight the skill in blending and the transparency behind the work going into producing whiskies that use spirit from more than one distillery. For him, it's about educating the consumer, whereas there is still a large section of the industry that wants to hide behind obfuscation and marketing - ironic considering Glaser's previous role!
Hedonism was the very first release from Compass Box, an initial effort to highlight just how flavourful grain whiskies can be - a category which is often derided as 'filler' for blended whiskies.
The receipe changes batch to batch, so it's best to head to the Compass Box website and check out the back label to see what you might have in your bottle - however the sweet pastry cream and soft toffee notes are a consistent flavour profile throughout each batch. Since I first tried it not long after it launched, Hedonism has been one of my favourite whiskies of all time - the combination of sweet and dry spice is an absolute joy.
