In a world where malt whiskies get all the attention, people often overlook the pleasures of good Blended Scotch Whisky. Compass Box Whisky Co. believes it is time for the world to take a fresh look at this style, and that is why they have created Great King Street.
More than just a new brand, Great King Street is a mission, a mission dedicated to reviving interest in one style of whisky only: Blended Scotch Whisky. This is the style of Scotch whisky that combines flavourful single malt whiskies with delicate, elegant single grain whiskies.
There are good reasons why the blending of grain whisky and malt whisky has been the mainstay of the Scotch business for well over 150 years. Well-made Blended Scotch Whiskies have an elegance and approachability that make them a joy to drink. They are far more versatile than other styles of whisky, equally enjoyable drunk on their own or with ice, soda water, or in cocktails.
Due to the preponderance of poorly made, inexpensive Blended Scotch Whiskies on the market, many people assume any bottle of Scotch bearing the term "blended" is somehow inferior.
Not if you make it the way Compass Box does. This is the basis of their mission-enlighten people to joys of a well-made Blend, because they open up so many new opportunities to enjoy great whisky.
