Compass Box Scotch Asyla

Compass Box Scotch Asyla 750ml     
Sku: 1085140

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The secret to making Asyla is the quality of the casks. We use only whiskies aged in first-fill American oak casks because these yield whiskies with more vanilla character, more richness and more sweetness than refill casks. Asyla is made with 50% malt whisky. There are few blended Scotches that use as high a malt content as we do at Compass Box. The result is a carefully crafted, elegant blended Scotch whisky that makes the perfect aperitif.

Tasting notes
Sweet, delicate and very smooth on the palate, with flavours of vanilla-cream, cereals and a subtle applelike fruit character.

A top choice for those who prefer a lighter whisky style. The pale straw color and gentle vanilla and fresh pear aromas hint at what’s to come. On the palate, expect a flash of sweetness, finishing with caramel and a faint veil of smoke. Mouthwatering. — K.N.

Distillery Sourcing Single malts from the towns of Alness and Longmorn; single grain whisky from Fife. Wood 100% first-fill American oak ex-Bourbon. Bottling Details Bottled at 40%. Not chill filtered. Natural colour.
