Compass Box Delos Blended Scotch Whisky
Delos transforms the blueprints for the Compass Box Extinct Blend, Asyla. All American oak, an older character, and a sumptuous balance of malt and grain whiskies.
First created in 2001, Asyla was the ethereally beautiful cornerstone of the Compass Box core range until its retirement in 2018. With Delos, Compass Box has focused on capturing Asyla's vibrancy and soothing sweetness, turning to older stocks to achieve this.
Littered with mosaics and ruined ancient temples, the island of Delos embodies the ideal of a beautiful, classical sanctuary. It is the perfect name for a whisky that reimagines Asyla using antique, rarefied components. Malt whiskies from the Glen Elgin, Imperial and Miltonduff distilleries – all from American oak barrels – bring enticing exotic fruit and vanilla notes while lush and fragrant grain whisky preserves the delicate mouthfeel that was Asyla's hallmark.
A sweet succulence that breaks upon the nose in soft waves: ripe pear, pineapple, orange oil and vanilla cream. A medley of fruit tarts and white chocolate soothe the palate, while the maturity of the component whiskies gradually builds to reveal guava, heather honey and chai spices.
