    DESCRIPTION

    The Compass Box Great King Street range sets out to create Blended Scotch Whiskies in the fuller-flavoured style of the late 19th century.


    In the book "Whisky", written in 1930 by Aeneas MacDonald, we learn that Glaswegians historically preferred full-bodied and flavour-packed whiskies - this is such a whisky, hence the name, "Glasgow Blend". The blend is made up of the following components:


    33% Lowland grain whisky from Fife, 67% single malt whiskies from Islay, Highlands and Speyside.
    Casks used include first-fill sherry casks, first fill and refill ex-Bourbon barrels and a small portion of new French oak finishing.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    The label of the Great King Street Glasgow Blend features The Wellington Statue which can be found outside the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art. This icon of Glasgow is rarely found without a traffic cone on his head and is a lovely little nod to the "gallus" Glaswegian sense of humour.
