Asyla uses only whiskies aged in first-fill American oak casks to yield more vanilla, more richness, and more sweetness than the refill casks traditionally used in Scotch maturation. Asyla is the plural of asylum - a word rich in ambiguity, suggesting that delicate balance between madhouse and sanctuary, an idea Compass Box feels 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.
Ideal as an aperitif served in a white wine glass with chilled water. Try before a meal with shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano.
