The peatiest-ever whisky from Compass Box, no mean feat from a company that produces a bottle called 'Peat Monster'. Called 'No Name' to let the whisky speak for itself, this limited-edition blend consists of: 75.5% malt whisky produced on Pier Road, Islay; 10.6% malt whisky made near the village of Port Askaig; 13.4% malt whisky produced near the village of Brora; and, 0.5% Highland malt blend.
No Name has aromas of bonfire smoke, medicinal peat and hints of autumn leaves, followed by intense smoky, peaty flavours accompanied by hints of spice, ripe cherries and plums.

Peat smoke. Smoky, kippered fish snacks. Vanilla flan. Rice pudding with raisins. Gumballs. This is my new favorite. Sadly, it's a limited edition.
This was the best Ardbeg/non-Ardbeg release in years.
Very smooth and approachable scotch. The peat is subtle and not in your face. A few drop of water brings out the sweet side of this scotch. 5 our of 5 for me.
I bought a bottle last week. Yesterday I poured my first dram of this stuff, here are my findings: Presentation: 10/10. What an esthetically pleasing bottle. The cork has been sealed with wax, which gives it a somewhat nostalgic feel, and the black on black with complementary gold lettering really invites you to this drink. The mellow gold color of the dram is very pleasing too, it definitely looks like Ardbeg. Nose: 9.5/10. Incredible. What a nose. An incredible melange of different kinds of smoke. Definitely the peaty smoke of Pier Road, but also a more complex, musty smoke, almost like a smoldering bonfire that's been doused by an autumn rain. Autumn leaves come to mind as well. It's a pretty damp nose at first, but in a very good way. Further nosing leads to the typical Ardbeg-y lime zest and ripe apple/pear notes. There is little to no alcohol on the nose, giving away that this isn't a blend of very young whiskies. Taste: 8.5/10. The first taste is a little overwhelming due to its smoky complexity. Besides the smoke, there is a definite nutty flavor at first and a very oily palate. There is also a motor/engine-oilish flavor somewhere in there, which put me off a bit at first but actually works really well with the whisky. A few sips down the line, the complexity starts to clear up as your brain adjusts to the smoke galore. It is then that this whisky really starts to shine. The smoke is still present but starts to give way to citrus fruit, grapefruit, orange peel, ripe apples and a tobacco hint, but also a briny maritime character, which reminded me strongly of sal ammoniac licorice (a popular licorice in the Netherlands). The undertone does bring back memories to Clynelish, with a bitter sweetness, some oranges and leather. Finish: 9/10. The finish is medium long. The smoke and nuttiness lingers on, with those typical briny licorice and tobacco notes, very warming. A very unusual but undeniably pleasant aftertaste. Overal: 91/100. This is the stuff
Sure it has peat, but still subtle, better than peat monster, no monster flavour.
