Compass Box Spice Tree Extravaganza Hard to find in stock !The Spice Tree blend used oak staves from 195-year-old forests, that were seasoned for two years, heavily toasted to Glasers specifications, and inserted into oak barrels. Although the release was well received by the public, the technique used to make the whisky received much scrutiny from the SWA. It was eventually banned from the market. Glaser eventually developed a new method of adding flavor, by inserting toasted new oak French cask heads into the barrels. With this revision of methodology, Spice Tree re-emerged onto the market in 2009.Compass Boxs Spice Tree Extravaganza release is a Highland blend, inspired by their controversial signature range classic, with the trademark Spice Tree ginger and clove spice character. It is composed of malt whiskies from the Glen Ord, Benrinnes, Clynelish, Dailuaine, Teaninich, and Allt a Bhainne distilleries. The blend is then aged in hybrid, ex-bourbon barrels. A significant portion of the blend is sherry-cask aged, infused with decadent notes of dark berries, juicy red fruit and dark brown sugar, the finish is long and spicy.Compass Box was founded in 2000 by entrepreneurial visionary John Glaser, in London, England. After being in the wine industry, Glaser made the move to Diageo, where he came into the whisky industry. Compass Box is known to challenge convention and tradition in pursuit of whisky and its enjoyment. Located in a seemingly incongruous London England, Compass Box is not a Scottish distiller but a blender Scottish whiskies, combining the best casks from Islay, Speyside and the Highlands, and aging them in a variety of woods from sherry casks to toasted French oak.Glaser pushes the boundaries of innovation to new levels with his art of whiskeymaking. Seemingly uninhibited by the norms of the formidable Scottish whisky industry, Glaser has proven himself a true alchemist. In 2005, his aptitude for wine making prompted a disruptive experimental sensation; The Spice Tree release, a blended whisky made using inner staves, or wooden slats inserted into casks to enhance flavor. Wine-...makers use this technique as a more economical way to add oak flavor wine.
