Compass Box Great King Street Experimental OO-V4, 43%

Price: $48 Issue: Winter 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Great King Street was our Blend of the Year two years ago and Compass Box wondered where to take it next. So they have released two versions, asking customers to decide between them by voting online. The other one is peated and will probably win easily, which is a shame, because this is a more subtle and better whisky. Sherry, syrup, honey, apple, and sultanas are all here, but nuanced.
