Compass Box Optimism

Country: Scotland
Type: Blended Malt
Bottler: Compass Box
ABV: 44%
Score: 89 points

John Glaser filled just 170 bottles of Optimism at Whisky Live London in 2009, making it rare that you’ll see this one. The nose is smoke and charred oak, heather, straw, and ginger. The taste is very smooth with peat and cinnamon balanced against ginger and nutmeg notes. The finish is smoky, peppery, and long.
