Great King Street Glasgow Blend Scotch Whisky
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
|Brand||Great King Street|
In his 1930 book "Whisky", Aeneas MacDonald teaches us that Glaswegians historically preferred fuller bodied and more flavour-packed whiskies than people in other parts of the world. So what better name for a whisky such as this? You'll find here a rich vein of peaty-smokiness, underpinned by sherry cask-aged whiskies, full of dried fruit and wine character. The palate is full and round, with a sweetness typical of whiskies from our company. Perfect for drinking neat, with a splash of water or with ice. You can also enjoy Glasgow Blend with soda water as a classic Highball, or in all manner of cocktails.
This robust bottling is a permanent addition to the Great King range, added in 2014. Light golden in the glass, look for a lightly smoky aroma with fresh pear notes underneath. On the palate, a waft of peat smoke mingles with lemon cream, vanilla and pear, flavors supplied by Sherry cask-aged whiskies. Slight salinity sets the mouth watering. Best Buy.
