A refined, savory curation of peated Single Malts from the masters at Compass Box.

Compass Box isn’t a distillery or a distributor. Compass Box is a story. It’s a story that began in the year 2000 when John Glaser — a marketing director for Johnnie Walker decided to break out on his own. He was an American working for one of the most iconic brands in the world of Scotch Whisky and — like a typical American — thinks he can do it better on his own. It takes a lot of Whisky stones to step out of a dream job with Whisky perks and start a business like this. John buys bulk output from some of the best distilleries in Scotland and then creates custom blends which he finishes and ages to create unique Whisky expressions.

A few years ago Compass Box created their “No Name” limited release — and quickly sold out. So they did it again. We love it when we get a lot of nerdy detail about a Spirits, so let’s get to it. Like the previous release, Compass Box No Name No.2 is a curated tribute to peated Whisky. It’s a combination of three famous Single Malts — 75.5% Caol Isla aged in refill Sherry butts, 10.5% Talisker aged in ex-Bourbon hogsheads, 13.5% Clynelish also aged in ex-Bourbon hogsheads, and .5% Highland malt blend aged in darkly toasted French oak. And this little smoky gem is bottled at a tasty 48.9% ABV which will stand up to whatever you want to throw at it. You should also remember that — just like all Compass Box Spirits — there’s no chill filtration or artificial additives to worry about.

Appearance / Color
Pale Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
A melange of briny-smoky-peaty notes greet you at the nose with a balanced fruit sweetness and a light, almost floral appeal.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor palate is a mingling flowing combination of smoke and fruit and sweet with charcuterie, dried cherry, toasted oak, sea spray, and baking biscuits in the oven.

Finish
The finish lingers long after the sip and feels like you just stepped off a boat with a pipe in in your mouth.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
