Compass Box Phenomenology Review [From Paris with Love]

Hi everyone,

From the guy who brought you No Name, I now present Phenomenonenology. Another new one from CB that will have you puzzling over what the hell is going on in your life.
They said that so many people got so many different things from this that they want to leave the tasting notes and components (List here) out of it for the moment. Does that check out? CB have always claimed to be the champions of transparency and truth but here they are keeping secrets...
Anyway, how's it taste before we pick up our pitchforks.

Compass Box Phenomenology 46%
Colour: Gold
Body: Medium
Nose: A light and fruity one, Clynelish waxy, red apple, subtle spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, beeswax, ceder, expensive wood, wood polish.
Taste: Soft arrival, red apple, waxy, toffee apples, dried apples, lovely development, a little salt. The dried apple note in particular is really very nice, not really had that before.
Finish: Long length. Nutmeg and cinnamon spices come through with more red apple.
Another great one. I'd bet a lot of money on there being older Clynelish in here. Or just a lot of Clynelish in general.

Thanks for reading!
