Compass Box Hedonism 2024 Limited Annual Release Blended Grain Scotch Whisky



Compass Box's Hedonism 2024 Limited Annual Release marks a significant chapter in the brand's history, celebrating the innovative spirit and artistry of blended grain Scotch whisky. Originating from the mind of John Glaser in 2000, Hedonism transformed the landscape of Scotch whisky with its pioneering approach to blending grain whiskies. This 2024 release, crafted under the expertise of Lead Whiskymaker James Saxon, is a testament to Compass Box's commitment to excellence and innovation. Utilizing the last of their stocks of grain whiskies distilled in the 1990s, this limited edition is characterized by a mature profile, with older whiskies (vs. the "standard" Hedonism) almost entirely aged in first-fill Bourbon barrels. The profile is also a tad sweeter compared to regular Hedonism expression, which is being phased out.


Nose: A complex array of patisserie aromas envelops the senses, featuring exotic vanilla and clove-infused caramel.

Palate: Layers of creamy custard unfold, complemented by accents of honey and mascarpone, offering a luxurious and rich-tasting experience.

Finish: A delicate citrus note elegantly rounds off the tasting journey, leaving a refreshing and sophisticated aftertaste.


Compass Box Hedonism pairs wonderfully with desserts that echo its tasting profile. Consider pairing it with vanilla bean custard for a harmonious match or a classic crème brûlée to complement its creamy and caramel notes. For a cheese pairing, opt for mild, creamy cheeses that will enhance the whisky's buttery and honeyed dimensions.
