HOW WE MADE ……..NO NAME, NO. 2

Our second Limited Edition released under the No Name banner continues the theme of anonymity, allowing the whisky to speak for itself.

Here’s how we made No Name, No. 2…

A NEW RIFF

We hadn’t intended for No Name to become a series but then we uncovered samples of malt whisky from the Caol Ila distillery, aged in refill Sherry Butts. We felt that the No Name concept offered the perfect platform on which to showcase its compelling character.

While mimicking No Name in terms of recipe structure, medium-peated malt whiskies from the Caol Ila and Talisker distilleries make No Name, No. 2 a very different composition.

SEEING THROUGH THE SMOKE

We hope Compass Box followers will enjoy debating where No Name, No. 2 sits on our spectrum of smoke: how does the peat character compare with the first No Name, our smokiest whisky ever? Is it smokier than The Peat Monster or Flaming Heart? Ultimately, what makes a great peated whisky?

No Name, No. 2 will supply its own answers – it is not our place to say.

No Name, No. 2 is currently available worldwide, and from September 2019 in the USA.
