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.
|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.
Single malts from the towns of Alness and
Longmorn; single grain whisky from Fife.
100% first-fill American oak ex-Bourbon.
Bottled at 40%. Not chill filtered. Natural colour.
|Ideal as an aperitif served in a white wine or similar
glass with chilled water to taste. Try before a meal
with shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano.
