"The new 2021 release of Orchard House saw a bit of a return to Glasers roots. Its light, fruity, refreshing, and priced at the midrange of the market. The whisky is drawn from 39% Linkwood, 29% Clynelish, and 20% Benrinnes barrels, all first-fill ex-bourbon.

Item Description
"The new 2021 release of Orchard House saw a bit of a return to Glasers roots. Its light, fruity, refreshing, and priced at the midrange of the market. The whisky is drawn from 39% Linkwood, 29% Clynelish, and 20% Benrinnes barrels, all first-fill ex-bourbon. This leads to a lot of orchard fruit notes and a relatively small amount of the heavier fruit notes associated with ex-sherry casks which are usually present in Compass Box blends. The remaining 12% is a mixture of 8% malt from an oloroso-seasoned barrel from a distillery near the town of Aberlour which probably just means Aberlour, 2% ex-bourbon Caol Ila, and 2% of Johns favorite mixture of Highland malts aged in a barrel with heavily toasted French Oak heads."
About Compass Box Whiskey Co.
Compass Box was launched in 2000 by the American John Glaser, who was previously International Marketing Director at Johnnie Walker. To promote his whisky, John travelled through London visiting pubs and bars with samples and, in idiosyncratic style, handing out business cards billing himself as "John Glaser – Whisky Zealot".

Compass Box's modus operandi and strong work ethic is what sets them apart as an independent bottler and blender like no other. Compass Box buy individual casks and focus on creating a craftsman-like boutique product. None of their bottlings are chill-filtered, nor is any colouring added and are all married exclusively in American oak. This brings the characteristic sweetness to the whisky.

One of their unique expressions and a superb example of their methodology is Compass Box Hedonism. This is a marriage of between eight and fifteen different grain whiskies, most of which are over twenty years old and all are aged in first-fill American oak. Hedonism went on to be heralded as the World's Best Grain Whisky at the 2008 World Whisky Awards. John Glaser was himself featured four times in Whisky Magazine as Innovator of the Year
