For this, their peatiest whisky yet, Compass Box have decided on No Name.
Compass Box 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 their 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.
Tasting Notes: A bonfire-like smokiness on the nose with a peatiness that is by turns tarry and medicinal with hints of autumn leaves. A powerful smokiness and peatiness follow, accented by hints of ripe cherries, plums and spice.
