The ruched curtain rises on a big-boned, balletic and flamboyantly peaty new whisky. It boasts considerable stage presence, despite having No Name. Each instalment in the No Name series has followed a common structure: one heavily-peated malt whisky dominates, tempered by malt whisky of a complementary but subtler smokiness. These are supported with unpeated malt whiskies which convey fruitiness, elegance and spicy sweetness.

With No Name, No. 3, our sequence exploring Scotch whisky’s smoky spectrum can come to a fitting conclusion. Fans of the first No Name will recognise a strumming tarry intensity, while the fruity fragrance hinted at in No Name, No. 2 has been given a tropical makeover. Seaweedy and barbecue-scented single malt from the Laphroaig Distillery takes top billing, with malt whisky from the Bowmore Distillery lending compelling hints of mango and pineapple at the very limits of ripeness. We feel that the peatiness of No Name, No. 3 has an operatic quality to it; vibrant and expansive, wild yet graceful, there is also considerable weight and resonance. Experience it neat, perhaps in the dark, when a little drama is called for.
