User Reviews of the Compass Box Asyla

My least favourite from Compass Box

I love Compass Box whisky. Hedonism, Spice Tree, Canto Cask and The Circus are all superb blends, better than many single malts I've tried. Unfortunately, I found Asyla a little too light and bland for my tastes, but it wasn't unpleasant, just not one I'd buy again.

Doesn't Live Up to Its Philosophy

I bought this scotch based on the blurb. I loved the philosophy and inspiration behind this scotch, however I'm sorry I purchased it. Perhaps my expectations were too high.

Newbie's Perspective

Yeah I consider myself a newbie to the Scotch world I have been drinking several different scotch over the last 5 years and although, I do agree with the review written in "Initial impressions" section I like the Compass Box Asyla very much and yes it is quite light but my favourite Scotches are produced in Speyside. Therefore, Asyla suites me just fine I have yet to graduate to trying the big boys with a great deal of peat such as Laphroaig or Lagavulin. Unfortunately, I am not there yet to try the big peaty Scotch however I did try one which was Bowmore and found it akin to having a mouth full of grass so I quickly switch back to something my palate could handle such as a Glenrothes 1985. Needless to say I found this one of the best drams I have had the pleasure to taste with my limited access to the whiskies available. So there you go a newbie's perspective on what is considered to a more mature scotch drinker as light tasting whiskey in the Compass Box Asyla. Cheers

Initial impressions.... wore off quickly though.

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...

Tweak it slightly

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

A very good blend!

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.

A much appreciated present

I bought this for a friend as a wedding present. Both he and his new wife love it. Fruity, punchy, oaky. All good!
