The first bottle in the Myths & Legends series is built to highlight the complexities generated by blending different casks of the same single-malt whisky—in this case from a Northern Highland distillery, although the origin point of course isn’t named. Compass Box writes the following:

It may surprise some, but blending is as crucial to the creation of single malts as it is to blended whisky. Myths & Legends I highlights the extent to which individual casks are often unreliable authorities for the style of whisky made at a distillery; it is by blending casks together that a fuller picture of distillery character can emerge.

On the nose, Myths & Legends 1 certainly isn’t lacking in fruity complexity, to the point that it almost sort of overwhelmed me—like, I know I’m getting fruit, but it was surprisingly difficult to pin down precise notes.

Tasting notes

This is a syrupy dram, with lots and LOTS of dark honey, pineapple juice, caramel, some earth and something that reminded me of cream soda/orange creamsicle.
