Product Description

Vellichor—the scent of second-hand bookshops. On discovering this marvelous new word, Compass Box began a quest to recreate the fragrance as a tribute to the storytelling potential of blended Scotch whisky.

Whiskies, like old books, contain their own stories and the process of finding the right one can be compared to scouring second-hand bookshops for specific volumes. Their search was met with success when a distiller and bottler in the north of Scotland offered casks of whiskies which had been blended together in the past, before being returned to ex-Sherry butts for further maturation. Compass Box then combined these Sherry-matured stocks with bold and mature malt whiskies from The Macallan, Highland Park, and Caol Ila distilleries. The aroma is highly evocative for anyone with a fondness for books; the taste evolves and intensifies as any good political thriller or historical romance should.

The late whisky writer Michael Jackson recommended some whiskies be enjoyed "with a book at bedtime." This is one of those whiskies.

Tasting Notes
Hints of leather, polished furniture, and the crackling dustiness of decades-old pages on the nose. The palate is stacked with sumptuous malty notes, tropical fruit, and Sherry character, with a delicate but persistent peatiness.
