Compass Box No Name
This whisky was given No Name to let the whisky speak for itself. It is massive in terms of the intensity and complexity of f lavour; a whisky brimming with complex peatiness, but tempered with hints of fruit character and an underlying sweetness.
The recipe is primarily sourced from the Pier Road distillery. The tempering single malt is from the Islay distillery in Port Askaig, with its more elegant, restrained peaty malt whisky. To add dimension, fruit character and an ethereal element, we have added a small portion of malt whisky from a much-loved distillery in the Northern Highlands village of Brora. We finished things off with just a touch of malt whisky finished in French oak, providing a lovely underlying sweetness and richness.
They came across a parcel of American oak barrels filled with mature, massively peaty single malt whisky - tarry and full of bonfire-like smokiness. To them, this was a whisky crying out to be tamed and shaped into a very special Compass Box limited edition.
Even peatier than the whisky called ‘The Peat Monster’ - the staple peated Blended Malt Scotch Whisky in the Compass Box range - the resulting blend is massive in terms of the intensity and complexity of flavour; a whisky brimming with complex peatiness, but tempered with hints of fruit character and an underlying sweetness.
