A curious Scottish blending experiment.

Compass Box and its founder, John Glaser (ex-marketing guy at Johnnie Walker), loves staying busy. After releasing numerous expressions and winning countless awards, the company came up with a special blending program. Great King Street, named for the address of the Edinburgh offices, is a range of Whiskies that aims to bring premium but approachable blends to drinkers that might not care for a glass of Whisky.

After the initial blending, the GKS Whiskies return to one of the original casks they were matured in (either a run-of-the-mill American barrel, a Sherry butt or a custom-toasted new French oak cask) to be married and united into a balanced and wonderful union. The result is a rich and round blend that juggles between both characters – like a flavorful marriage. You’ll savor everything from clove spice to creamy vanilla and fall in love with the concept of Whisky – if you’re not already a fan.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Decent

Antti,
It is an outstanding, complex, Blended Scotch Whisky that has a delicate birth; while a creamy life leads to a rich & zesty death of medium length with notes of cheesecake, vanilla cream, smoke & wood.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Light aroma, light on the palate. Smooth drinking for 49%. Light complex aromas at first, then sweet finish that lasts. Excellent
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Interesting mix of flavors. Mild flowery taste with a fruitiness as well. Finishes with a wood/spicy end.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Sweet on the nose. At first mostly spice, but then a hearty sweetness comes through, like cake. Better and better through the glass. Great overall.

Really good

Liz,
Okay, spicy woodness/goodness. Add some ice/water to bring out the smoke and also, surprising, the floral notes. Super complex dram.

One of the best from the advent calendar. Sweet with a little smoke. Too bad you can’t buy it on Flaviar.

A tasty dram of fruity blended scotch.
 
Burton
Burton,
I found this truly a nice Scotch with a floral honey fruit nose. A zesty palate adds spice cinnamon and cask with a nice ABV. Worth a look.
 
John
John,
I thinks it’s an appreciable scotch whiskey. It blends well. Not necessarily my flavor profile however.
