In the GLASGOW BLEND you’ll find a rich vein of peaty-smokiness, underpinned by sherry cask-aged whiskies, full of dried fruit and wine character. The palate is full and round, with a sweetness typical of whiskies from our company.
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. This makes the grain whisky much richer and sweeter on the palate.
|Wine maker notes
|By applying the same skill, techniques and philosophy that we use for the Compass Box Signature Range of whiskies, Great King Street offers a style and
approach to Blended Scotch that has not existed before. Great King Street is a new and compelling alternative for both whisky enthusiasts who ordinarily drink only malt whiskies, and for whisky novices. It is bottled
at a natural colour and without chill-filtering. We call whiskies made with this approach ‘craft blends’.
|Natural colour and no chill filtration. This leaves the whisky full of its natural complexity and mouthfeel. A perfect balance of malt and grain whisky. Created in small batches from specially selected casks. Bottled at a higher strength of 43% to give the whisky more presence and character.
