Started in 2000 Compass Box is a specialist Scotch whisky maker. In 2001 they created Eleuthera their first ever blend, made exclusively with single malt scotch about 80% unpeated Highland and 20% peated Islay. However after 3 years of production tragedy struck when they could suddenly no longer obtain one of the key whiskies that the recipe required, so in 2004 it was retired becoming a Lost Blend they could no longer make.
The Lost Blend is a homage to that first special single malt blend Eleuthera. This Lost Blend is made up of a simlar ratio of Highland and Islay as Eleuthera was but from different distilleries. The Highlands are represented by an aged single malt from the Clynelish distillery, and an American oak aged whisky just shy of two decades old from ALlt-A-Bhainne, and the Islay factor comes from an expression from the Caol Ila distillery. This blend of unique quality single malts gives the Lost Blend a complex taste underlined by fruit and smoke. Compass box created three unique labels for this whisky all based around lost items, so be aware not all the bottles look the same.
Nose: Green apple, hay, herbs, & peat
