Compass Box Scotch Whisky Tasting at Fairways Golf Club

July 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$60

If you’ve never tried Compass Box whiskies, you’re in for delicious event!

Join the Dram Devotees of Bucks County as we taste our way through some of the most impressive, modern scotch whiskies available. Compass Box is a blending house that is modeled after the Scottish blending houses of old. What began in the 1840’s with Andrew Usher II blending grain and malt whisky in Edinburgh, Scotland, became a movement of establishing blending houses in the 1870’s by men like Chivas, Ballantine, Walker and Dewar in London, England. These men revolutionized scotch whiskey and men like John Glaser of Compass Box (with their Blending Room also in London) are continuing that tradition today.

In an industry that has steadfastly remained committed to ‘the way we’ve always done things’, Compass Box focuses relentlessly on creativity, process innovations, and exploring the many ways we all can enjoy the pleasures of Scotch whisky.

If we consider a single malt whisky to be the whisky equivalent of a solo musician, then a blend can be compared to an orchestra. A blend is a precise taste reproduction every time, and that precision requires incredibly talented and well-respected nosers and tasters from the whisky industry. We will discuss this skill and use a nosing kit to help distinguish flavor and scent profiles from the whisky we taste together. Bring your tasting journal to keep notes!
