Compass Box Orangerie Review

This is a blend of single malt and grain whisky that is infused with orange peel zest and some spices and bottled at 40% ABV.

Nose: Sickly sweet orange juice with a slight malt profile. Mulled spices and apple jacks cereal.

Palate: Bitter and citrusy at the same time like a grapefruit – very peppery malt with big dose of cloves.

Finish: Bitter with sweet and sour notes fading rapidly.

Rating: 82/100 – Interesting experiment for an infused whisky – maybe better suited for a non fan of scotch who can treat it like a sipping liqueur.

Value for the money: This retails around $40 and I think I’d pass on it at that price.
