MYTHS & LEGENDES I underlines how individual casks are often too unreliable for the style of whisky made in a distillery; it is by assembling the casks that a more complete picture of the distillery's character will emerge.

MYTHS & LEGENDS I is the first Single Malt, although it is more accurately described as a blend of whiskies from a single distillery.

It was made from three malt whiskies distilled in the same distillery, located in the Northern Highlands. The first is very different from the second, but the blending allows to obtain a very accurate vision of the contrast of the distillery. The younger one is malted and lemony, the older one much creamier with a ripe fruit character. The combination of these three elements has made it possible to create a whisky full of aromas and complexity, a precise illustration of the distillery's understanding.

MYTHS & LEGENDS II is a blend of malt whiskies from a Speyside distillery. The distinct and unique character of MYTHS & LEGENDS II is the result of decisions taken at the distillery, the effects of maturation in different types of casks and own choices regarding the final blend. In addition to tropical fruit and caramel aromas, you will also discover subtle salty and spicy notes.

The distinctive profile has nothing to do with "Speyside"; the decisions of the process taken at the distillery, the effects of maturation and the own choices as to the balance of the final blend determine the quality and character of the whisky. The flavour clues of a whisky are found in the glass and not in the area of the distillery!

Myths & Legends III proves that no know-how of a distillery is too precious to be assembled. Whisky should not be categorized: creativity and quality prevail.

For the latter Whisky, Compass Box used the same nectar as for Myths & Legends II, to which they added peated whiskies from the famous islands of Orkney and Islay

The aromatic smoke and depth are enriched by the malt, tropical fruits and butterscotch notes of MYTHS & LEGENDS II. Never assemble great whiskies and famous names? The range of generous and complex flavours found in MYTHS & LEGENDS III dismantles such superstitious thoughts.
