Having received The Whisky Advent Calender from the guys at Drink By The Dram (thanks again for that, pretty awesome to participate in the daily advent whisky fun) gave me another chance to have a look at the Compass Box Great King Street Artist’s Blend.
Back in 2013 Johanne shared a sample with me of it. Then I scored it an 6 out of 10. I was missing some depth in it and found it very easy going. On the nose I found it then a sweet one with vanilla, raisin, lemon freshness, creamy, red apple, cookie dough, cereal and dried fruits. The palate was also sweet and creamy. Notes of lemon, apple pie, raisins, roses, whole grain cookies, vanilla, ripe pear, clove, nutmeg and lemon sweets. A middle length finish that is sweet and high on vanilla.
