Compass Box The Spaniard Blended Single Malt Scotch
The Story of the Spaniard is a blended malt whisky (that is to say, multiple single malts but no grain whisky) that is composed of malts aged in ex-sherry (48%) and Spanish red wine casks (25%). The vatting is bottled without added color or chill filtration at 43% ABV. 40% of the malt here is from “A distillery near Aberlour” which could mean Aberlour, Macallan or Craigellachie. That latter is most likely. The component that is aged in Spanish red wine casks is from Teaninich.
Malty, heavily sherried, and a bit like Christmas cookies.
