Online retailer whiskys.co.uk are hosting a tasting of Compass Box whiskies on October 14.
Compass Box are specialist blenders who hand craft a range of award-winning, small-batch whiskies in a variety of styles, using the best malts and grains available. The whiskies are bottled in contemporary packaging with unusual names such as Peat Monster and Hedonsim.
According to whiskys.co.uk’s blog they are “like fine wine negociants [who] choose individual casks of whiskies from different distilleries that offer complementary sets of flavours, and then carefully blend these casks in small batches to make their proprietary whiskies”.
The tasting will be at Stamford Bridge Sports Pavilion in Stamford Bridge, near York, on Friday 14 October from 7.30pm.
To book places ring Andrew on 01759 371356 or visit their blog at http://whiskymerchants.blogspot.com/2011/09/compass-box-whisky-tasting-evening.html for more details (and directions).
