Compass Box Great King St Glasgow Blend Review

Glasgow Blend I recently posted some information about the release of the Great King Street Glasgow Blend from Compass Box and was lucky enough to get to try it.

There's a lot going on in this both on the nose and on the palate with a lvoely sweetness running through it and hints of chalky smoke that work really well together.

This is a seriously drinkable dram, easily one of the most flavoursome session drams you could buy, and i certainly recommend you do and for under £28 at The Whisky Exchange it's not going to break the bank either.

Thanks to Compass Boxfor the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Initially a hint of Edinburgh rock / sweet chalky notes with edges of smoke with fruity mentos and hints if fresh herbs with parsley being one of the strongest notes and a real sherry sweetness underneath

Palate

A hint of chalky smoke wraps round a huge dose of opal fruits / starburst and fruit mentos and fresh herbs hints of Christmas spice linger

Finish

Christmas spiced oranges and herbs with fruit mentos
