Compass Box is a maverick boutique blending firm that is doing its party to bring the sexy back to Blended Scotch whisky. The firms founder and whisky maker John Glaser is one of Scotland's most respected Blenders. 

This original Great King Street is composed of 46% Lowland Grain, 45% Single Malt from the Northern Highlands and 9% Speyside Single Malt. 66% of the whisky was matured in 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon, 26% in New French Oak and 8% in 1st Fill Sherry. The result is a very complex, balanced and easy drinking malt.

Producer's Description: Five key things set apart our approach to making Great King Street:

  1. Great Grain. We use the very highest quality single grain Scotchwhiskies which are the foundation of good Blended Scotch. All are aged in “first fill” American oak barrels, which makes the grain whisky much richer and sweeter on the palate.
  2. More Malt. We use a higher proportion of malt whisky than most other Blends. Artist’s Blend consists of almost 50% malt whisky. This provides more character and complexity.
  3. Better Oak. Every cask of whisky used to make Artist’s Blend is of the highest quality: first-fill American oak casks, first-fill European oak ex-Sherry butts and new heavily-toasted French oak.
  4. Bottled Naturally. Artist’s Blend is bottled at its natural colour and without chill filtration. This leaves the whisky full of its natural complexity and mouthfeel.
  5. Traditional Strength. We bottle Artist’s Blend at 43% alcohol by volume, a strength traditionally used in Scotland many years ago.
