""To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the legendary Chicago punk rock whisky bar this summer, we have once again created a limited edition Scotch whisky in collaboration with owner and whisky enthusiast, Mike Miller. The recipe for our second Compass Box homage to Delilah’s was built around a small parcel of the original Compass Box Delilah’s blend released in 2013 - a luscious, American oak-aged whisky that we aged in cask for a further five years. With this as a base, Mike suggested adding malt whisky aged in Spanish Sherry casks, also made of American oak. The result is a delicious Scotch whisky with notes of vanilla and spice, and rich Sherry character. It’s another incarnation of the shared vision Mike and I have for whiskies that everyone can appreciate and enjoy!"

Availability Planned release of 8,520 bottles worldwide.
Bottled April 2018.
Flavour Descriptors An effusive aroma of dried fruits, baking spices and light Sherry wine character. On the palate it’s soft and rich, with a complex sweetness in the form of vanilla and spice, and a finish of fresh green fruits and cream. Recommendations This is an attractive and versatile style of Scotch whisky, ideal for sipping on its own, with a splash of water or with ice. It also works really well as a shot with a great beer.
