Compass Box Asyla Reviews

Balance and elegant

I know they have discontinued this Asyla. I have a bottle and decided to open it to try before all the bottles on the market disappear. I can understand many people “light” impression and that was my first impression as well. However, the the bottle goes down, the whisky becomes more expressive and the fruit and floral elements pop out. It doesn’t cling to your tongue for a long time, but leaves a fresh minty finish. I start to appreciate the balance of blending this scotch to truly arrive to a stage completely opposite to heavy pungent the Great King Street Glasgow Blend, for example. For those who complain about the lightness of this whisky, please consider that it is blended in that way on purpose. Will I get another bottle? Well, I will decide when bottle becomes half.

One to buy one to keep

I love this whisky. Certainly top drawer.

Never drink it in the night. It's for daylight!

An extremely elegant and light whisky. Never to be confused with a heavy spirit for a comfy chair by the fireplace, this dram is for garden work! No kidding. It's for enjoying in the sun, mid-afternoon, when you rest on your rake and your soul is at peace.
Given the price level, it is true value for money, my rating reflects that.

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.
