For over 30 years, Juveniles Bistrot a Vins in the 1st arrondissement of Paris has been a crossroads for winemakers, spirits producers, writers and various sorts of affable hedonists from all over the world.
Compass Box & Juveniles share a similar approach to good food and drink, seeking out integrity and not taking things too seriously. Both our businesses are obsessed with quality and provenance. Both like to do things in their own way.
These common traits have made Compass Box and Juveniles good friends since the very first meeting between Tim and John years ago. We have collaborated with Tim on Juveniles whiskies several times.
For this Limited Edition, Time asked us to create something “...bright, smooth, not smoky...an assemblage perhaps between 12 and 15 years-old…”. We’ve tried to give him all that an much more. This assemblage (we love Tim’s use of this wine word to describe whisky blending) comprises single malt whiskies from four distilleries, each bringing a distinctiveness to the whole.
You’ll find notes of barley sugar, pear drop and vanilla, complemented by an ethereal underlying herbal character. It’s a whisky to be enjoyed with great food and even better company.
