Insider knowledge: Compass Box Great King Street Experimental Batch #TR-06 whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Compass Box Great King Street Experimental Batch #TR-06 whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
A proper smoky blend, very well balanced but the emphasis is on smoke in my view. Quite medicinal on the nose, a bit like some Longrow I have tried. Very complex taste, sweetness battling with smoke all the way. Top notch, hope it becomes a permanent fixture!
