Whisky Focus - Compass Box Hedonism 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

Hedonism Limited Edition 10th Anniversary

29th November 2010

Compass Box Hedonism 10th Anniversary 38 Year Old Single Grain Whisky.

Japanese Proverb "None of us is as smart as all of us"

This is a proverb that means a lot to John Glaser, enough so that he featured it on the Compass Box website in 2000 when he started the business.

Over our first ten years there have been many people who have helped Compass Box achieve their success. This special 10th anniversary bottling of their signature whisky Hedonism, brings back their iconic "Hedonism head" (created by graphic artist Chris Edmunds for their first release), and is a tribute to everyone who has helped Compass Box in their first decade.

The original bottling of Hedonism was the culmination of a painstaking search for great casks and it set a course for what Hedonism has become.

John Glaser spent many months collecting cask samples from different distilling companies and brokers, tasting and re-tasting, blending the very best casks in innumerable combinations, until he felt he had something unassailably good. Good enough to launch the Compass Box Whisky Company.

This single cask, distilled in 1971 at the Invergordon Distillery, while much older than what Compass Box typically use for Hedonism, represents to Compass Box perfection in maturation, the basis for all the casks they select for Hedonism going back to that first batch in 2000.

This special edition is meant to be a suitable toast to all of you who have helped make Compass Box what it is today.

There was only 144 bottles of this one-off Hedonism 10th anniversary bottling released for sale. It was matured in 100% American White Oak and bottled 46% ABV. Natural colour. Not chill filtered as you would expect from Compass Box.
