Compass Box Asyla (2004)



Asyla takes its name from the plural form of “asylum,” and is a member of the Signature Range from Compass Box along with Oak Cross, Spice Tree, Peat Monster, and Hedonism. Within this range, Asyla has the potential to be the most immediately approachable in terms of price and profile. It is a blended Scotch whisky, boasting a 50% mix of malt whisky paired with the remaining 50% consisting of grain whisky. The blend is matured in first-fill American oak casks. Quality cask selection is of particular interest to the folks at Compass Box. The finished product is bottled at 40% alcohol by volume, and, as with all Compass Box releases, is not chill filtered and is always natural in color. This is the second edition which we believe was bottled in 2004.

Back in 2000, John Glaser was working for a large UK distiller when he realised that there was so much that hadn’t yet been explored in the world of Scotch whisky. An American living in London, he decided to do something refreshingly different and bring the joys of Scotch whisky to more people in exciting new ways.

So, he started Compass Box, an inventive company based on the long-lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, but with a forward-looking approach and an unrelenting desire to create deliciousness.

Originally working from his kitchen, Compass Box has grown over the years and now has two dedicated Blending Rooms in London. They now have their own stocks of maturing whiskies in Scotland and a team of over 15 hugely enthusiastic whisky-lovers.
