Compass Box The General

The GeneralMany thanks to the awesome Johanne (@WhiskyLassie) from the Whisky Lassie blog for this sample of, this now completely sold out, Compass Box The General.

The General is a blend of two blended whiskies from two secret companies, both which were blended at a young age then left unused in the cask for a long period of time.

This is an exquisite and definitely old dram, fruity, leathery, spicy it has everything you would want in a dram and i now wish i'd tried this earlier and went out and bought a bottle, i might have to do some auction hunting now.

Thanks again to Johanne (@WhiskyLassie) for the opportunity to try this dram.


Fresh fruits, lots and lots of fresh fruits with summer fruit salad hints of oak goodness, it has that mix of sweet fruits of strawberry, melon, peach and oaky notes with wood spice fresh vanilla and hints of leather.

Fresh fruit salad, melon, strawberry, fresh vanilla with oak spice and leather, very sweet and lots of spice coming through

Leather and spice with fruit compote,
