The secret lies in the quality of the casks. We use only whiskies aged in first-fill American oak casks to yield more vanilla character, more richness and more sweetness than the refill casks traditionally used in Scotch maturation. We’re often asked about the name. ASYLA is the plural of asylum – a word rich in ambiguity, suggesting that delicate balance between madhouse and sanctuary, an idea we have always felt well suited to a whisky style such as this. This is a whisky that will gently enliven the senses. It is at once delicate, comforting and luminous.
