Compass Box "Delos" limited-edition blended Scotch whisky pays homage to their retired blend, Asyla. Crafted with a focus on older and rarer whiskies, Delos aims to recapture Asyla's "vibrancy and soothing sweetness." Expect a complex and well-rounded flavor profile with hints of fruit, honey, and spice.

Description

Since Delos is a new release, specific details about the taste profile are limited. However, based on the information available, here’s a potential breakdown:

Malt-Forward Character

The higher malt content compared to Asyla suggests a focus on malty notes like biscuit, honey, and maybe a touch of vanilla.

American Oak Influence

Aging solely in American oak casks likely imparts notes of vanilla, caramel, and potentially some hints of coconut.

Soothing Sweetness

This descriptor from Compass Box suggests a balanced sweetness throughout the palate. This could come from the malt whiskies, the American oak casks, or even a touch of grain whisky in the blend.

Fruity Notes

Hints of fruits like pear, orange, or pineapple might be present, adding complexity and freshness.

Spice

Subtle hints of spice, potentially from rye grain in some of the malt whiskies, could add another layer of interest.

Notes

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.
