Compass Box Hedonism Vatted Grain Whisky

    Most Scotch whisky blends combine single malts with grain whiskies. Going against tradition, Compass Box founder and whisky maker John Glaser is renowned for using only grain whiskies to create limited editions with memorable flavors and no age statements. A classic example is the aptly named Hedonism, produced only twice a year from grain whiskies with an average age of over 20 years. Flavors of toffee and vanilla mix with the characteristics of a vegetable garden.
