Compass Box Great King Street – Experimental 00-V4

It has certainly been a long time since I reviewed a new Compass Box whisky. Some are in the queue. Gladly I have gotten a sample from a friend.  the previous GKS versions (NY blend and Artist’s Blend ) were both great blends with the former peated nicely.

Compass Box Great King Street Experimental Batch #00-V4 , 43% , £32compass-box-great-king-street-experimental-batch-00-v4-whisky

Nose: A lovely combination of delicate sherry, some baked orchard fruit , a wee hint of smoke too but it’s in the backdrop.  Some citrus and fresh dough.

Palate: Smoke is a bit more noticeable here as well as juicy barley and sweet fruit and a touch of dried fruit.

Finish :  Dry, with  malt , dough and a touch of smoke.

My two cents:

As always with CB whiskey this is very good stuff. I am not sure which one I prefer but this is a great blend to drink NEAT. Mixing could be nice too…

Score:  86/100

Cheers PS for the sample
