From our Compass Box tasting evening:

This is a blended grain whisky, in fact the only 100% grain whisky permanently produced in Scotland.. It was the first whisky made by Compass Box and uses 100% first fill American oak casks, plus time…Typically 15-25 year old grain whiskies are used, and the aptly-named product has a signature which is long, vanilla creamy, with toffee and coconut notes. 

Information About Compass Box

Innovative New Oak Casks
Compass Box work with a small mill in France that produces some of the highest quality cooperage oak in the world. Their work with this mill  led 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 malt whisky with more character and complexity. This technique is used on about 50% of the malt whisky in Oak Cross and it results in a superior finished product.
The Signature Range from Compass Box
Oak Cross is part of the Signature Range from Compass Box. The three Scotch whiskies in this range offer the spectrum of Scotch whisky style, from the delicate, sweet character of Asyla, to the rich, spicy, malty character of Oak Cross, to the peaty-smoky character of Peat Monster. Each is made from casks chosen individually, cask-by-cask, to ensure perfect maturity. The casks are combined according to recipe and returned to wood for “marrying” up to 12 months before bottling. Steps like these enhance complexity, flavour integration and soft mouthfeel. Extra steps, but they’re worth it.
