Compass Box Great King Street New York Blend
Next up in my month of Blended whiskies in the Compass Box Great King Street New York Blend.
I've had a great love of Compass Box whiskies right back to around 2004 when i first tried Peat Monster and Orangerie at a Whisky Fringe event in Edinburgh, and their whiskies really have gone from strength to strength.
Not easy to get in the UK so pop to Compass Box to pick up a bottle.
Thanks to Chris at Compass Box for the official sample.
very different to the Great King Street Artists Blend, the notes in here are of peat smoke, light though not huge with some underlying tropical fruits with pineapple and papaya, there's a malt influence in there also.
prickly spice and pepper with touches of peat smoke and charcoal, theres a touch of tropical fruit coming through also
nice length with pepper and spices
