For this, the second Limited Edition of the No Name series, Compass Box is again allowing the whisky to speak for itself. Still very smoky indeed, there is a new depth and delicacy. To borrow a musical analogy, No Name was peat as power chord; No Name, No. 2 has brought harmony to the party. Built around an elegantly smoky Islay malt matured in refill Sherry butts, the second peated whisky used comes from the Isle of Skye. To these some old and ethereal single malt whisky from the Northern Highland village of Brora was added, and just a dash of malt whisky finished in new French oak to add an underlying richness.
No Name, No. 2 will transport you straight to the peat bogs and malt kilns of Scotland’s West Coast. 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.
Recipe Notes: 75.5% Caol Ila aged in refill Sherry butts, 10.5% Talisker aged in rejuvenated hogsheads, 13.5% Clynelish aged in rejuvenated hogsheads, and 0.5% Vatted Highland Malts finished in new French Oak barrels.
