Great King Street New York Blend

Country: Scotland
Type: Blended Scotch
Bottler: Compass Box
ABV: 46%
Score: 94 points

John Glaser created this blend with an eye to the malt-rich Blended Scotches popular in the pre-Prohibition days. The nose is intense with a nice smokiness and a touch of maltiness, along with hints of baked apples, peaches, and honey. The taste is smooth, but with a powerful peaty smokiness balanced well by honey, apple, peach, and cinnamon notes. The finish is smoky with a good long cinnamon touch and hints of honey underneath, and fades very slowly. Outstanding.
