Compass Box is unique in the world of whisky. Founded just over ten years ago, it is a small independent company specialising in the blending of whiskies bought from the main whisky producers. Compass Box has made this its speciality, becoming the master in its fields of blended malts, blended grains and blended whisky, with each category represented in its portfolio. It is also a company with a genuine philosophy, elevating blending to a worthy, noble task, distancing itself from its industrial image and reasserting the value of its craft as a ‘whiskymaker’.
NO NAME #2 C.Box 48.90%
NO NAME, NO. 2 will transport you straight to the peat bogs and malt kilns of Scotland’s West Coast but won’t smother with smoke. Weighty on the palate, hugely complex and concentrated, NO NAME, NO. 2 also introduces a degree of delicacy. An elegant mix of dried fruit notes, reminiscent of red cherries, and even a floral quality mark NO NAME, NO. 2 out from the peated whisky herd.
Those who snapped up NO NAME, and who are familiar with THE PEAT MONSTER, will love this latest exploration of the smoky whisky spectrum. NO NAME, NO. 2 is proof – if it were needed – that peat is far from one-dimensional.
