The Last Vatted Malt Reviews
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine
A deep, smoky nose but its a peatiness that's well integrated with a lush fruitiness. Dry roasted spices and tobacco. The overall effect is like woodsmoke clinging to the clothes while sitting round a campfire.
Light smoky to start then it deepends into those cooked fruits and a little black olive tapenade.
Sweet and Smoked.
Every element in harmony and adding to a complex whole. A triumph.
Tasting Notes by Dominic Roskrow for Whisky AdvocateNot Compass Box at the very top of its game, but pretty damn good nevertheless. This is a mix of malts from different distilleries and it has the company's distinctive DNA all over it, combining siege cannon-strength peated malt with rich, fruity sherried whisky. It's clumsier than the wonderful Flaming Heart but in the same ballpark, and I have to declare an interest - I adore this combination when it's delivered right. 90 Points

The best scotch I have, the best of my two favorite regions, in one bottle. There is a lot going on with this scotch, I’m no expert, however I taste about 20 different flavours with a peat smoke finish. I own about 40 bottles, this and Johnny Walker Green are my only blends. I will try more Compass Box for sure.
