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.

Minty, he then reveals herbs (verbena, sage), lime and cut hay. The palate is round, firm. Slightly sweet, it is initially milky and candied time (orange). From now whiskey gained the upper hand. It grows on spices (nutmeg, ginger), malted barley and refreshing bitterness. The finish is long, accurate. She returned on herbs (fennel, verbena), mint and spices (coriander) before becoming exotic (passion, kiwi, banana) and fruity (pear william). Malted barley’s signature.
