Asyla is a blend of 50% malt and 50% grain whiskies. It contains a range of single malts from Speyside and the Highlands (Linkwood, Glen Elgin, and Teaninich) and single grain whisky from Fife (Cameron Bridge). All whiskies are aged in first fill bourbon barrels for 10 to 12 year old. The whiskies are then combined according to the recipe before being recasked for up to 12 months. Asyla is the plural of Asylum.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Exceptionally sweet, light and fruity. Icing sugar and faint lemon drizzle cake. Faint oak.
Palate: Reminiscent of vanilla slice with squidgy cream or perhaps a traditional Bakewell tart. Sweetness held in check by the grain. Light and yet substantial. Marzipan.
