Received this as a free bonus when I ordered a drink of the Hedonism Quindecimus. I didn’t approach it as a scotch, but more of a liquor like Irish Mist or Drambuie. Infused with oranges and clove, I wonder what it could possibly taste like?
Price: $50 for 750ml
Distilled/Owned by: Combination of Glen Moray and Cameronbridge whisky / Compass Box
Aged For: No word on this, I would guess young, not that you’d be able to pick out the complexity
Additives: The whisky is “infused”, but no synthetic ingredients have been used.
Color: Orangish Copper
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Nose: It couldn’t possibly be orange? Yeah it’s orange. Sweet sugary orange.
Taste: Juicy succulent orange. Very faint hints of clove and cinnamon overpowered by orange.
Finish: Now its bitter orange! But quick and leaves a feeling like you just drank some malt liquor.
Thoughts: The whisky equivalent of triple sec, no complexity or reason to drink this neat, but I could see it making some interesting cocktails.
Score: 65 out of 100
