Compass Box The Circle - Rosey Mitchell

Compass Box The Circle

Every year Compass Box will invite some of the world’s best bartenders to join them at their London blending room. They will learn about the company and about blending. One finalist will be chosen to create a special blend – for 2018 that was London’s Rosey Mitchell who wanted to invent a sunny Sunday afternoon whisky, leading to Compass Box The Circle No.1.

The blend contains around 79% of Tamdhu from first-fill bourbon barrels, 15% of Clynelish from refill sherry, 5% of Highland Park from recharred bourbon hogsheads and 1.5% of the typical CB Highland malt blend from French oak. Bottled at 46% and due in May.
