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 (50cl)

    Very Nice

    This scotch surprised me because the price is very minimal. It is very crisp and is kind of like drinking and apple/pear juice. I actually like this one better than Dalwhinnie 15 and Glenlivet 15.

    This was a nice dram, especially for the price. It is a nice blend for newbies to try to start their scotch journey. Very rich and sweet with a nice long finish.

    Fruit and Cereal

    Very very nice! A whiskey everyone can enjoy. Certainly not something the peaty smokey people will embrace,but a nice dram to enjoy with friends and family.

    The best blend

    I have tried many blends and liked some but missed the point with others. This is simply excellent whisky. If you usually only buy malts give this a go you won't be disappointed. Wonderfully complex and long.

    Simply delicious. Two glasses down, about to pour one more ... And I always stop at two.

    solid flavor

    Was given this bottle by a friend who works in the industry, and after tasting I'll definitely pay for it. I enjoy the oak finish

    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.

    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.

    compass box great king street- artist blend

    This is crap taste like J@B scotch not worth the coin.I would rather drink my own urine.These wanks should be beaten with haggis.

    Good stuff

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

    10th July 2013


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