The secret to making ASYLA is the quality of the casks. We use only whiskies aged in yield whiskies with more vanilla character, more 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. We’re often asked about the name. ASYLA is the plural of asylum – a word rich in ambiguity, suggesting that delicate balance between madhouse and sanctuary, an idea we have always felt well suited to a whisky style such as this. This is a whisky that will gently enliven the senses. It is at once delicate, comforting and luminous.
