Compass Box The Spaniard
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
Full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with notes of citrus peel, red wine and spices. The finish is long, with hints of rich vanilla panna cotta, ripe berries and cherries. Recommendations: This is a whisky ideal for late evening sipping, served on its own or with a large ice cube or splash of water. Serve in a wine glass as a nod to the Spanish wine cask maturation!

2 Gingers Irish WhiskeyThis award-winning spirit is smooth, malty and slightly sweet to start, with a tingle of honey and citrus. A blended Irish whiskey, distilled twice and aged four years in the mild climate, the woody essence suggests caramel and vanilla to the finish.
Starward Nova Single Malt Whisky
Bevan Bench Vineyard Cabernet SauvignonWe got the opportunity to work with new vineyard in 2014. The Bench Vineyard, in Stags Leap, is half a mile from the Wildfoote Vineyard, but it shows more of the traditional Stags Leap flavors and textures. It has a great density to it. The weight gives it a serious quality and the fruit flavors back that up. There is a power to this wine that makes it different, almost as if we let the wine sit on the skins after fermentation had completed. This wine will improve for a decade, so you can age it while you drink its siblings.
