Stranger & Stranger is a bit of a departure of blending experts Compass Box because it’s technically not a whisky.
Technically. 99% of the blend is made with Scotch whisky.
It was released in celebration of working with packaging designers Stranger & Stranger for ten years.
Another innovative release from John Glaser and the Compass Box team. A vatting of northern Highland distilleries (principally Clynelish), the whisky is aged in unique barrels with heavily toasted heads, adding a rich spiciness – great sipped neat or used as the base for a whisky cocktail.
The newest addition to the Compass Box core range, this is a blend of Highland and Speyside whiskies, significant portions of which have been aged in sherry casks and – most notably – Spanish red wine casks. Predictably, this is a delectable dram full of dark fruit and berry flavours with a heavy dose of rich, woody spice.
