Great King Street Artist’s Blend

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky differently from me.

I was sent this sample by Vin of No Nonsense Whisky fame. If you haven’t already then I highly recommend checking out his videos and you can see his review of this particular dram here: No Nonsense Whisky on YouTube. Vin puts out regular videos including live streams. Please subscribe to his channel as it really does help.


White wine.


Sweet, vanilla and biscuit notes – digestive biscuits. There’s some fruit in there too though – apple for sure.


Sweet, vanilla and again apples. There’s also a bit of cinnamon spice to it as well.


A touch more of the spice and some oak. As that trails off it leaves a creamy, vanilla after note that lingers.


This isn’t hugely complex, but it is enjoyable. Sweet and creamy but with some spice and fruit to make it a bit more interesting. At around the £28/£30 mark its certainly a winner for me and a great everyday dram.

Taken from Compass Box website:

Soft, full and fruity on the palate, with flavours of baked apple, vanilla, spices and toasted oak.
