Compass Box Tobias & The Angel 750mL
Made from just two parcels of casks, containing whiskies which we are unlikely ever to source again at these ages. Tobias & the Angel is a culmination of two decades of whiskymaking.
We have a long-held reverence for the whiskies of the Clynelish and Caol Ila Distilleries. Ever since ELEUTHERA, our first malt blend released in 2002, we have known that these two single malt whiskies can complement each other exquisitely. For the label artwork, so great is our esteem for the whiskies in this blend that we looked to Renaissance painting for inspiration. We’ve chosen TOBIAS & THE ANGEL , a beautiful painting produced at Andrea del Verrocchio’s studio in Florence during the 15th century. As was common at the time, however, TOBIAS & THE ANGEL showcases the talents of several artists. For example, the little dog with its graceful and minutely-observed curls of hair, and the gleaming fish carried by Tobias, were both painted by a young Leonardo da Vinci.
