Must have GREAT KING STREET Glasgow Blend

GREAT KING STREET Glasgow Blend 43%

Blended Scotch, Scotland 50cl Ref: 87

A must have LMDW

Two experimental versions from Great King Street, one heavily peat-based and the other characterised by its sherry aspect, blind-tasted during the Whisky Live Paris 2013, had opinion divided as to the best of the two. The experienced and ever-pragmatic Master Blender John Glaser therefore decided to create a blend of a refined and delicate combination of peat and sherry, where a smoky aspect gradually gains the upper hand. John Glaser’s latest creation, the Glasgow Blend, is exclusively distributed on the French market and in most European countries by La Maison du Whisky.

Made from a blend of 33% single grain distilled in Fife (Lowlands) and 67% single malts from Islay (20%), the Highlands (14%) and Speyside (33%), this new ‘peaty masterpiece’ from Great King Street bears the Compass Box seal. First and second-fill bourbon barrels and first-fill sherry casks are selected for the blend, followed by a finishing period spent in French oak barrels to ensure perfect maturity.

Profile: refined, elegant. A malty bitterness, smoky (ash) and liquorice peat. Fruity (citrus fruits, dried and candied fruits), spicy (juniper berries, clove) and heady (broom, mimosa) notes.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : lemon yellow.
  • Nose : refined, well-balanced. A beautiful malty bitterness, subtly ashy smoke and a liquorice-infused peat all emerge in the initial nose. Next come citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), juniper berries and cloves. The overall effect is one of freshness and liveliness with a heady feel (broom, mimosa).
  • Palate : elegant, distinguished. A menthol opening confines the peat and smoke to the background. Liquorice, chocolate and candied fruits (apricot, walnut) gradually slip between the two. Sherry leaves its mark on the palate. Unctuous, it develops Bourbon vanilla and acacia honey aspects.
  • Overall : mellow, perfectly poised. The sherry coats the palate in its creamy notes (luxurious dessert coffee). Finely herbaceous, slightly salty peat lends it great depth, while the puréed fruits and citrus fruits rise to the surface. The retronasal olfaction here is spicy (saffron, star anise) and the empty glass is earthy (gentian root).
