Compass Box are being very hush-hush with their limited edition The General blended Scotch whisky, which is rather bothersome, because it sounds like there's an awesome story behind this awesome expression.
The General is a blend of two blended whiskies from two secret companies, both which were blended at a young age then left unused in the cask for a vast amount of time. One of these whiskies aged for 33 years and Compass Box are keeping quiet about how old the other one is due to Scotch Whisky Regulations. We need Sherlock Holmes or Poirot up in here to get to the bottom of this one!
Like everything John Glaser gets his hands on, The General is expertly blended, hitting all the right notes that will have "antique" whisky lovers chomping at the bit with its depth, complexity, wonderfully soft palate and a long finish.
C'est le good
It will be for the razy and the blood. Good-y-good.
Le tummy is aware.
