Compass Box The Circus Review

Compass Box the circus A blended Scotch whisky for over £175 that is truly exceptional, yeah theres not many that can do that but yet again Compass Box show the world how it's done.

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.

Lots of well aged grain sweetness in here, this is not a young blend thats for sure, seriously sweet, fruity and very very drinkable this may be on the higher end of the price scale for blends but it's totally worth it.

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

Many thanks to Compass Box for the official sample

Tasting Notes & Details


really fresh, theres dewy grass but then lovely sweet dried fruits, caramelised figs and grannies homemade trifle, some spiced fruit scone, with jam and clotted cream, caramelised white chocolate and some syrupy sponge


very light sweetness, cinder toffee and puff candy, caramelised white chocolate, jellied orange sweets, citrus tang, duck a l'orange without the duck, slightly meaty though


very light, the grain lifts this up
