Compass Box No Name No. 3 is a smoky, peaty blended malt Scotch whisky bottled at 48.9% ABV. It's a limited edition with a mysterious recipe, but it's known for its bold and intense flavor profile. It is crafted with malt whiskies from Laphroaig, Bowmore, Mortlach, and Clynelish distilleries.

Description

Compass Box No Name No. 3 hits your palate like a wave crashing on a rugged Islay beach. The initial wave is a powerful rush of peat smoke, reminiscent of burning bonfires and tarred ropes. It’s pungent and medicinal, with hints of iodine and seaweed that evoke the salty ocean air. This might be overwhelming for some, but for peat lovers, it’s a thrilling introduction.

As the smoke begins to subside, a symphony of other flavors emerges. Bowmore’s influence becomes evident with bursts of tropical fruits – think pineapple, mango, and even a hint of guava. These sweeter notes create a fascinating counterpoint to the smoke, a sweet and salty dance on the tongue. The Mortlach component adds a layer of richness and depth, with hints of honey, vanilla, and a touch of floral perfume. Clynelish’s subtle influence can be detected in the elegant, waxy texture that lingers on the finish.

But No Name No. 3 isn’t all sunshine and rainbows amidst the smoke. There’s a peppery spice lurking in the background, a gentle heat that warms the chest and complements the smoky character. Hints of leather and tobacco add a touch of earthiness, hinting at the whisky’s matured character.

The finish is long and lingering, with the smoke slowly fading to reveal the sweeter, fruitier elements. It’s a complex and evolving experience that keeps you coming back for sip after sip, urging you to unravel its hidden depths.
