The One I Love

Malt Scotch Whisky

48,9%vol., nicht gefärbt, nicht kühlgefiltert


An arresting blend of boisterous yet nuanced Sherry cask
character, together with tarry, funky assertive smokiness.

Connection. We all need it in life. It provides us happiness.

One of the things I've relished over the 20+ years since I started Compass Box is witnessing the power of whisky to make connections between people.

In January of 2009, the ‘I Love Compass Box Whisky‘ Facebook group was formed by Robin Robinson. He started it as a way for people to share their experiences with our whiskies, mindful of our motto, “Share and Enjoy.” In September of 2021 the group hit 1,000 members and today there are many more.

Our long-time friend and partner, Gerd Schmerschneider, has run the Group together with Markus Dröge for many years. Recently, I told Gerd I wanted to do something for the Group so we at Compass Box can connect directly.

Gerd worked with James and me in our Blending Room to make a malt whisky that combines Sherry cask character with rewarding depths of peatiness. The Highlands, Islay and even Mull are represented. „This is the one I love,“ Gerd said of this complex and expressive style.

This whisky can‘t be streamed or downloaded (for that weapologize). As a means of fostering further rewarding connections, however, we hope it will be as successful as Gerd and all who have been involved in ‘I Love Compass Box Whisky‘.
