A long time ago, Compass Box created a rich, bold Scotch whisky called The Spice Tree. Unfortunately, due to its avant garde method of oak-aging, they were compelled by the powers that be to discontinue production. Undeterred, they worked with their cooper friends in both France and Scotland to develop a new, hybrid oak cask that would allow them to achieve similar results, but in a way that would be acceptable to even the most conservative of observers. Et voila, The Spice Tree was resurrected – matured using a custom-made cask with French oak for the heads and American oak for the bodies. The Spice Tree is a rich, intense malt whisky redolent of baking spices and layered with toasty oak accents that complement the underlying distillery character.
