Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sweet and creamy, with lots of cereal notes, some vanilla, dried fruits, citrus and apple crumble.

Palate: A gentle, creamy whisky, which develops a great deal of richness. Notes of Christmas spices, lemon, buttery apple crumble, Bakewell tart, rose petals and raisins.

Finish: Rich and sweet, with a long finish which tails off with notes of quince jelly, shortbread and spices.

Overall: Incredibly quaffable, an excellent whisky, and a definite crowd pleaser.

User Reviews of the Compass Box Great King Street - Artist's Blend

Not a bad whisky

Smooth, light, and still it packs a kick. A decent offering for the price.

The chap that suggested that that it was "crap like J@B" doesn't know much about scotch. This has great style although it is a bit like J&B, I happen to like it. Drink your urine if you want, I'll stick to the whisky.

Awful!

unbelievably awfully good! of course with luck the more people that give it bad reviews means more for ME! Too subtle for those with dull palates- a thoroughly enjoyable dram

Great Scotch Blend

I've been drinking Scotch for 35 years--just the best of them all, really. This is one of the most approachable bottles i've tried. My wife loves it! That's all I have to say.

Good stuff

Very good. I'm surprised that MoM did not mention coconut in their tasting notes. Some Glenglassaugh in there?

Boring

Pleasant enough. I ended up making hot toddies out of it. Too dull to drink neat.
