Staff Pick Notes

Master Blender John Glaser was a blender at Johnny Walker before starting his ode to blending and the glory days of whiskey: Compass Box! The Great King Street Artists Blend is a fruitier, creamier style. A benchmark, entry level expression which incorporates a hearty amount of grain whisky in to the blend.

I tasted it recently and figured on its versatility; highballs, cocktails, on the rocks, etc. However, I'm happy to sip this pillow soft whisky neat, all Summer long.
