Compass Box Enlightenment Review

Compass Box Enlightenment When the crazy geniuses at Compass Box put together a whisky they generally always knock it out the park and this Compass Box Enlightenment is no different.

After recent issues from being too transparent Compass Box are quite happy to let you know exactly what's in their drams you just need to write to them and ask. But the nose on this tells you theres a decent amount of a certain Brora region dram in here.

Sweet waxy, and fruity this is a cracking dram and one i'm glad to have a bottle of.

Although now sold out you can still get a sample from Master of Malt

Many thanks to Compass Box for the official sample
