The first in Compass Box's Great King Street range, named for the address of their Edinburgh office, kicking off their second decade in business. The Artist's Blend is a high malt content blend designed to be easy drinking and appealing to a wide range of consumers, from non-whisky drinkers and cocktail lovers through to single malt fanatics, and is full of Compass Box innovation and flair.
TR-06 is one of two experimental Great King Street releases from Compass Box. The idea is that one is chosen by consumers to be the second permanent release in the range. This is the smoky version, made up of 33% Lowland Grain and 67% Malt from Islay, Highlands and Speyside, of which half comes from Clynelish.
An extraordinary high-quality blend from maverick independent John Glaser, a man dedicated to the art of combining whiskies to produce an end result greater than the sum of its parts. If you wanted to convert someone who says they don't like whisky, you couldn't do much better than this. A must.
