Compass Box Great King St.
Here’s what Jim Murray thought of this wonderful blended Scotch whisky.
Great King Street Artist’s Blend – 93 Points
Nose 24: Now there’s a way to start the day. Stunningly enticing with every nuance of the delicate young barley laid bare. A light coating of bourbon oakiness is enhanced by the scrumptious cinnamon apple pie
Taste 23: Even as a hardened pro, I find it is difficult to spit this one. The delivery is firm, juicy and compelling; few blends these days are half so salivating! The grains try not to hide and weigh in with some lovely cocoa and bourbon stratum, allowing the barley to spread the grassy freshness gospel; good weight throughout.
Finish 22.5: Just a slight fault here: a little milkiness from a tired bourbon cask, a distant echo on delivery now makes itself heard, but has the good grace to remain in the background as the spices and late Demarara and liquorice notes hold court.
Overall balance and complexity 23.5: The nose of this uncoloured and non-chill filtered whisky is not dissimilar to some better known blends before they have colouring added to do its worst. A beautiful young thing this blend: nubile, naked and dangerously come hither. Compass Box’s founder John Glaser has done some memorable work in recent years, though one has always had the feeling that he has still been learning his trade, sometimes forcing the issue a bit too enthusiastically. Here, there is absolutely no doubt that he has come of age as a blender. 43% nc ncf
