Great King Street Whiskey Miniatures
Great King Street refers to the Edinburgh address of whisky maker, Compass Box, a relatively new legendary whisky label that makes the claim, “tradition is only half the story, we’re writing the other half”. Great King Street has been around since 1823 although the first scotch to honour this historic street was not launched until 2011. Great King Street Whiskey miniatures provide a single-serve sampling of this rather unique take on blended Scotch whisky.
The Great King Street Blended Scotch Whisky label is created with 43% ABV, a high malt content, and unchill-filtered, this line of blended scotch was conceptualized to change the growing perception blended scotch is inferior to single malt whiskies. In 2011, the Great King Street Artist's Blend was introduced. It featured a full and robust taste that left the palate with the combined flavours of toasted oak, vanilla and spices In 2014, the success of the Artist’s Blend was followed through with the introduction of the Great King Street Whisky Glasgow Blend. This is a fuller, richer, smokier and spicier blended whisky consisting of 67% malt from Islay, Speyside, and the Highlands.
Great King Street miniatures proudly display the golden liquid locked up inside each bottle which every bit an apt prelude to the treasured taste of blended whisky that awaits.
