Compass Box Asyla
Compass Box // Scotland
A blended Scotch whisky made with 50% malt and 50% grain which is quite high for blends. As with all Compass Box whiskies, there is no color added nor is it chillfiltered. Composition is as follows: 50% grain whisky from Cameronbridge matured in first-fill American standard barrel, 5% Glen Elgin single malt aged in refill hogshead, 23% Teaninich single malt aged in first-fill American standard barrel, 22% Linkwood single malt aged in first-fill American standard barrel. Update: As of June 2018, once case depletions occur, there will be no more Asyla for the foreseeable future until the malts used in its creation reach its desired maturity. If mature stocks are acquired, Asyla may return in a limited capacity until the stocks on hand mature.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.

"Bright sunshine-y orange and lemon are first to greet you on the nose. A moderately full whisky, the mid-palate is sweet and finishes with gentle cinnamon and vanilla. If the weather turns chilly or if you're feeling under the weather, the whisky makes an excellent hot toddy."
