Oak Cross Malt Scotch Whisky is a blended Malt Whisky from Compass Box Whisky Company.

The coopers put new French oak heads onto American oak casks. So that the whiskies matured in these mixed oak wood casks share the best flavour traits of both.

All the malts in Oak Cross Malt Scotch Whisky are from the Highlands, most notably from the villages of Brora, Alness and Carron.

Oak Cross Malt Scotch Whisky
Here is Compass box at its most inventive. Taking the soft, sweet, vanilla – tinged character from whisky aged in American oak casks provide and combining the complex character that aging with best quality French Oak they have created they have created a cask to acquire the best of both.

Combination of  American Oak bodies with French Oak Heads. After several months in casks of this type the whiskies took on a lovely, subtle extra layer of flavour. Now know as Oak Cross casks.

Oak Cross is a blended malt from the Highland region whiskies.

Led by Teaninich and balanced with malts from the village of Brora (for fruitiness) and Carron (for weight).

Then carefully married in a mix of first fill American Oak and the “Oak Cross” casks (combined American and French Oak).
