What's in a name? Compass Box Asyla whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Compass Box Asyla whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Melon, ethereal, ripe rosy apples, delicate smoke.
Palate: Gristy malt, touch of black pepper, grassy, oaky, orchard fruit.
Finish: Fairly uninteresting, malt, fruity, oak.
I bought this for a friend as a wedding present. Both he and his new wife love it. Fruity, punchy, oaky. All good!

This is another boutique-ish blend that's been out on the market for a few years. Very good! And at a reasonable price point, too. Will definitely buy another bottle.

46%, non chill-filtered (or is it?) and most certainly no caramel. Ever. x

Yeah, I tasted this at a whiskey festival and being a fan of Oaks Cross I thought this was even better. I bought a bottle a few months later and my initial enthusiasm wore off. A bit too bland for me, it becomes a bit weak and tasteless very quickly. I won't be returning...
