Compass Box Oak Cross Reviews
Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Light but bold, confident aromas; clay, flowers, some spice, and suntan lotion, jojoba or coconut. Peanut oil and oak.
Luscious mouth feel, geitost, heather honey sweetness that turns to spicy excitement. Oaky finish, butter and toast, with a tingling, pins and needles effect.
Makes me think of musicians, Damien Rice, Mark Shwaber, Leslie Feist... Confident and accessible while being charming, innovative, and interesting. Great value for the craftsmanship and complexity. Could easily enjoy this all night. The world waits for these guys to screw up... Not bloody likely.

A whisky for everyone to try , especially those who say they don''t like whisky ... I have converted several people to this amazing spirit with this bottle of Oak Cross
The NEW version just came to Canada (Ontario), July 2012. Love it, stock up some for the coming Holiday. Go Compass Box ! U rock ! Lovely vatt...uh, blend.. , uh vatted Scotch. Or the equivalence thereof. Toronto Tim.
I took a chance on this and I lucked out. It's delicious. Not overpowering. The flavor sneaks up on you with this lively, sort of spicy flavor.
No Burn, Mild but very pleasant and not bland. Good finish.
