Score
Compass Box have teamed up with Selfridge’s for this release and is only available there. It is created to celebrate the life of Gordon Selfridge, the founder. The Entertainer is bottled at 46% ABV and 1000 bottles available.

I give this one a 7,5 out of 10. This one feels very balanced and round. But also feels a bit “fragile” like it maybe could benefit from a higher ABV. It is a very nice dram, sweet and rich. Thanks Johanne for sharing this one with me!
