Compass Box "Affinity" Calvados & Scotch
Orchard fruit notes are common to both Calvados and Scotch malt whisky. Many Calvados producers double-distill in pot stills, just like their Scottish cousins. Maturation in French oak is another aspect of their shared DNA. These two spirits share richness, sweetness, and complexity; the Calvados lends an intensity and length to the finish which enhances the character of the Scotch whiskies.
