Compass Box work with a small mill in France that produces some of the highest quality cooperage oak in the world. It was their work with this mill that led them to experimenting with secondary maturation of malt whiskies in casks fitted with new French oak heads. This is something no one else in Scotland does. On the palate, notes of clove and vanilla accent a sweet maltiness and subtle fruit character.


Taste & Aroma

Compass Box work with a small mill in France that produces some of the highest quality cooperage oak in the world. It was their work with this mill that led them to experimenting with secondary maturation of malt whiskies in casks fitted with new French oak heads. This is something no one else in Scotland does. The result is whisky with more character and complexity. They use this technique on about 40% of the whisky in Oak Cross and it results in a superior finished product.
