  • NO NAME Is The Peatiest Whisky Ever!

    maltymates

    Massively, interesting and greatly delicious, this limited-edition whisky is massive regarding the complexity of flavor and intensity. Though Compass Box No Name whisky brims with complex peatiness, it is tampered with a few hints of fruity character and has an underlying sweetness.

    Inspiration Behind NO NAME

    The idea behind this whisky came from a parcel of casks of mature and heavily peated single malt whisky. A well-known distillery, located near Pier Road in the Southeast of the Islay Island, sent this parcel. This malt whisky had a different peat profile than that of the Peat Monster that is a staple peated Blended Malt Scotch Whisky in the product line of Compass Box. That’s why the parcel of casks was set aside by the company as a special limited-edition drink with a unique name.

    The Recipe

    thewhiskyexchange

    Packed with peat, No Name whisky consists of the following:

    • 5% malt whisky produced on Pier Road, Islay
    • 6% malt whisky made near Port Askaig village
    • 4% malt whisky produced near Brora village
    • 5% Highland malt blend

    Additionally, the whisky also consists of malt whisky finished in French oak that lends it its lovely sweetness and richness.

    Bottled at 48.9% ABV, Compass Box has released total 15,000 bottles of No Name worldwide. The product was first launched in Europe on 1st October 2017 and in the US on 1st November 2017 at the cost of £100 / $125 SRP.

    Fragrance: Tarry ropes and engine oil, and also features a touch of stewed plum and citrus zest.

    Reinterpreting the older components, the whiskey has a significant twist of sherry-cask aged malt whiskey. Oodles of sherry and sugar with the warming caress of spicy ginger and clove in this whiskey provide the new depth of flavors that casts a spell. Let’s figure out more about this flavorful whiskey.

    The playful aroma

    The rich, spicy character of Spice Tree with a sherry kick indulges the nose with a playful essence. Clove, sherry, vanilla, cinnamon, toffee-sweet malt and a bit of dry oak and cinnamon will get you lost in its aroma.

    The pallet coddles with a blast of baking spices, toasted malt, and mulled wine with a punch of vanilla cream and blood orange zest.

    Taste to die for

    Dark and caramelized, rich and rummy syrupy sugar infused in the whiskey overwhelms the taste buds with its sweetness. However, the sticky date with caramel and mixed dark berries in it enforces to fall in love with its taste. The warm and firm flavors are enlivened by dark chocolate rocky road, warming ginger, lots of cloves and winy sherry notes.

    Substantial finish

    The flavor of ginger, wood spice, and banana bread is mingled with dark cherries preserved in brandy and fortified wines. It is hard to resist sweet and sugary mélange of blackberry compote with rummy and dark molasses. The magic of the whiskey leaves you with a rich flavor of powdery chocolate and more vanillas with lingering cola.

    If you got a sweet tooth, congrats, you are in for a treat with the spice tree extravaganza. Unlock and enjoy!
