Spice Tree Bottling Note

Compass Box's delicious Spice Tree was briefly illegitimate, according to SWA regulations. After adjusting its creation, Spice Tree is back, and better than ever. It's a blended malt made from Highland malt whiskies, aged in specially made casks with new French oak heads.

In April 2015, it was named Best Blended Malt Scotch at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fragrant and aromatic with notes of dried herbs, spices, oak and vanilla. Has a bourbon note to it and a peppery tang.

Palate: Gingernut biscuits, toffee spices, herbal, vanilla, very rich and peppery.

Finish: Very spicy, big and rich.

Lovely stuff.....cannot say anything bad. It really is a much try, just so you know what a little bit of the best of everything can do. Tremendous dram.

Single Malt Snob Coverted

Recently purchased a bottle of The Spice Tree from MoM and was amazed how much I liked it. Always bought Single Malts in the £30-£80 price range and this was as good as anything I've tried recently. If you've never sampled a compass box whisky and are intrigued... buy this version. You wont be disappointed. I loved it so much, I had to order a second bottle for the cabinet. Slainte.

P.s I'm very tempted by the older version of this. The Spice Tree Extravaganza RRP £91 ish

Seasonal Dram

I have it on good authority from an industry insider that this iS a blend of Clynelish, Dalluaine and Teaninich whiskies (though the ages are a closely guarded secret) blended and finished in specially crafted barrels.

The virgin oak heads certainly add a huge dose of vanilla and as a Dalluaine lover, I can certainly detect the rich, malty, mouth-filling smoothness of some of their best sherried vintages. (Such a shame that Diageo stopped the Flora & Fauna, it was my favourite daily dram and I'm down to my last three bottles).

Wonderfully spicy (mint and eucalyptus?), creamy nose, terrific mouth feel (no chill filtration - hooray) rich toffee, vanilla, apple, honey, lots of winter spice including anis and clove, perhaps just a touch too much pepper (shows the young age of some of the constituents?). The finish is a little hot but seeps away nicely into apples and honey.

At the price it's very good and I'll certainly be looking out for more from Compass Box.

Just having my 1st taste and it's just gorgeous. Well worth the price tag.

Nice whisky

Wouldn't describe my bottle as very rich and peppery, but it's nice. I picked up on the fragrant nose and vanilla. On the palate I definitely got some spices, vanilla, and malted barley.

One of the best!

Very strong taste and perfect mix.

Best kept secret, so far...

Tried this blend at specialty store and fell in love with its robust flavors and incredible smoothness. Keep in mind, the "spice" does not refer to a burning sensation but it describes the bold flavors used to create this wonderful and reasonably price whisky...cheers!

This has chanced the way I think about 'blended' whisky!

I love aberlour a'bunadh and glenfarclas 105 but I love Spice Tree even more!

17th December 2015


oak,spice,vanilla, nice rich finish ....not very original, but quite accurate.

I do keep ordering more.....

Great stuff

Just buy it!

8th August 2015

Excellent at price point

Probably the best non peated whiskey I've tried at this price point. Exceptionally smooth for an unaged expression, very sweet and bursting with honeyed flavours. Very rich mouthfeel and also very accessible. This will be the default dram in the house from now on!

28th July 2015

Cinnamon, Honey, Vanilla and liqourice

Usually the sweet nonpeaty whiskyes dont rock my boat often...but this is something else! Cinnamon, honey, vanilla and liquorice all in perfect balance. I wonder what a cask strenght would taste like....

7th May 2015

Better than the rest

Complex, delicious toffee, spicy, strenght, sweetness, intense deep flavours with new dimensions with every sip! My new favourite whisky after tasting more than 50 different malts and blends.

26th February 2015

Brilliant Blend

Wonderful nose, taste and finish.

30th September 2014

Surprised by this blend!

Light on the nose, but nice nutmeg and pepper on the palate with a touch of smoke and fruit peels. Oaky dryness cuts through initial sweetness mid-palate. Delishus (hic)

5th March 2014

Unusual but good

Nice packaging makes a nice gift and it is a smooth, almost Japanese-like taste and nose,(Hakushu?).

28th June 2013

Wonderful (CEL)

I am currently enjoying a bottle in the states after crossing paths with this creation on this site. I am a Glenfiddich fan and have been experimenting with different whisk(e)ys for a time, coming upon this delight yesterday. Due to the high regard for this bottle, I purchased and rushed home to enjoy the contents. Three glasses into the butter-gold colored contents has pursuaded me to buy another bottle for safe keeping. The liquid washes over your tongue with sweet notes and carries a depth of subtle notes dancing alongside caramel with pepper shadows looming. Wonderful taste and value!

Frankly this changed my perception of blends. Incredibly well put together with their own maturation process. Simply amazing.

21st November 2012


Love it - very good and spicy dram

19th November 2012

Excellent smell, good taste

Smells like vanilla, caramel, medium sherry, hint of cherries and fresh cut wood. No peat. Taste alcoholic, sweet enough, mild, vanilla. Little harsh aftertones. Good persistence on the tongue. Compared to Auchentoshan three wood (more intense flavor) Ardbeg Uigeadail 2012 (peat, milder taste of alcohol, more intense flavors, less aromatic), Laphroaig Triple Wood (less aromatic, massive peat, milder, saltier, astringent taste, massive aftertaste). I recommend Auchentoshan three wood in this category, which has more intense smell and very similar taste, but milder alcoholic notes, although less vanilla and more bitterness.

An absolute beauty

This is not a whisky for the faint hearted. One of the best blends out there at a fantastic price! The compass box boys are ticking so many boxes with this one. A lovely rich nose: .vanilla alongside heavy spices and fruits. Palate is spinetingling peppery with ginger and a finish full of warmth and spice. Non chill filtered and no colour. I'm in love

1st September 2012


Just bought this whisky on a whim today. So rich, spicy (obviously) yet still sweet and complex. Non-chill-filtered and 46% gives a luxurious mouthfeel and the finish lives on and on. My new favourite whisky !

7th May 2012

Huge taste

So many spices in this (duh), great whisky for a lively night.
