Great King Street is a new line of craft Scotch whiskies created by the Compass Box Whisky Company for people who love great whisky.In a world where malt whiskies get all the attention, people often overlook the pleasures of good Blended Scotch. This is the style of Scotch whisky that combines flavourful single malt whiskies with delicate, elegant single grain whiskies. We believe it is time for the world to take a fresh look at this style, and that is why we have created Great King Street. Our approach to making Great King Street is different from any other Blended Scotch whisky brand. A marriage of the very best whiskies from Scotland’s top distilleries, aged in the finest quality oak. Grain whisky is the foundation of all Blended Scotch so we source the very highest quality single grain whiskies all aged in ‘first fill’ American oak barrels. There are good reasons why the blending of grain and malt whisky has been the mainstay of the Scotch business for well over 150 years.
Light and fresh. This is lovely. Floral and oaky notes. Closer to a Lowland malt than blended whisky. Some pepper and cucumber. Vanilla and mildly fruity scented candle. Dust…or maybe dirt floor. A harmony of notes that remind of strolling through large vegetable gardens. Great balance and composition. The palate, again…not blend typical. Dark vanilla notes, gala apple flesh (sans the tang of apple skin). Digestive cookies. Touch of florals. Easy drinker to be sure.
