The original Hedonism, Compass Box's first whisky, was released in 2000, and this special edition celebrates the company's 15th birthday. A vatting of whiskies of varying ages from four different distilleries, this is a multi-layered and complex grain, showing off the flexibility of this increasingly popular type of whisky.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Rich toffee straightaway, then tempting aromas of cereal, honey, and sweet Play-Doh plasticine, along with vanilla, sweet spice and an almost rye-like savoury warmth.

    • Palate

      That rye-like peppery spiciness is there, softened by honeyed fruit, vanilla sweetness and tingly clove notes, along with a plush chocolatey character.

    • Finish

      Rich and spicy, with the clove and toffee notes balancing each other nicely.

    • Comment

      Much more complex than the regular Hedonism, this has plenty to contemplate and consider.

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Salted caramel, Playdoh, royal icing, vanilla extract and candied lemon peel – lemon drizzle cake, perhaps? Fruit hides behind, with sultanas and sweet grapes. There’s a distinctly bourbon-like spiciness hidden in the depths, with nutmeg and some darker clove notes providing a backbone.

    • Palate

      Spicy and rich, with the salted caramel from the nose joined by black pepper, cinnamon and milk chocolate. There are darker notes behind, with treacle toffee, cardamom and clove, as well as damp earth and some green leafiness.

    • Finish

      Long and spicy, with the darker notes from the palate sticking around the longest – clove, treacle toffee and a hint of barrel char, fading through apple skin to gentle toffee.

    • Comment

      A very different beast to the 10th anniversary Hedonism‘s lighter, more floral style, going for a rich, old and spicy character. A great demonstration of how Compass Box have developed their blending skills over the years, balancing older, spicy notes against the fresher, fruitier and sweeter to produce a complex whisky. Good work.

  • Producer's Flavour Descriptors

    • The combination of grain whiskies from different distilleries and of varying ages has created extraordinary complexity and juxtapositions of flavour. Indulgent yet lively, unctuous yet light, you will find a deep, sweet caramel coconut succulence combining with exultant tropical fruits.
