A gift of a bottle of Compass Box whisky, The Lost Blend, made by John Glaser, changed my life forever. I have to thank Volkan Fotocan, a fellow whisky lover from Turkey for that. After then, I have followed Compass Box very carefully, tried to taste what I could afford. Every other bottle and their stories were just amazing. They easily make my Best Whiskies of The Year lists easily.
One day came and I was lucky to grant myself and two other friends a meeting with John Glaser at their office in outer London. It felt like entering into a candy shop and meeting your favorite soccer/football player at the same time as a kid.
After John telling us about Compass Box, what they are trying to achieve, we tasted a few (!) of current and ancient Compass Box creations. Then I nicely asked John if I can ask 5 questions and record it. He happily accepted it.
Here you go! A question and answer session with John Glaser himself.
John and his team hosted us to an incredible level. We left the office with huge smiling faces and honestly, the train ride back to London couldn’t feel that good ever!
