John Glaser Four time winner of Whisky Magazine's Innovator of the Year, the Compass Box Whisky Company is renowned for its high quality, award winning spirits. Great King Street was created to revive interest in Blended Scotch Whisky - a style which is usually overlooked due to the large amount of poorly made, inexpensive brands on the market. Glaser is single handedly making blended whisky cool again and owning a bottle of the Great King Street definitely makes you the coolest guy on the block. After a series of esoteric and expensive releases, Compass Box has decided to bring it all back to the people with a blend and how! The journey sets out as we might expect; all sweet vanilla ice cream, stewed pear tart, and peach melba, but then a wave of spice and white pepper provides an unexpected but delightful twist. It's like Spice Tree meets Hedonism...Spiconism if you like.
