Master of Malt sent me a press release about a new blended whisky they recently created in collaboration with Carey Willets to celebrate Mr Willets’ solo music project: Boxes
Well, not knowing about Boxes and his album Stickers, you can understand that my excitement about this whisky was quite low. But just a few days ago, a sample, courtesy of Master of Malt, arrived home and I felt it was my duty to taste it and just complete the job…
Without much enthusiasm I poured the whisky and tasted it.
“Quite happy with this Boxes whisky. Just a bit light for my taste to consider it something great but definitively a very good blended whisky”
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. honey, wood, smoke, vanilla, citrus, nuts. Sherried vanilla aromas with more than a hint of smoke.
Palate (89): light, smooth. peat, honey, wood, citrus, vanilla, nuts.
Finish (89): longer than average. peat, vanilla.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Boxes Blend with 89 points over 100.

Woo! I see they created a blend to suit most people because it is a bit light for my taste, but man! what a blend… if you enjoy it I suggest you give a try to Compass Box Flaming Heart and enjoy a real diamond.
This dram may have been a great one for me if it would have been bottled at 46% or with a bit less of light grain whisky. A very good one nonetheless…
