Win a bottle of Great King Street Glasgow Blend

To help celebrate the official UK launch of Compass Box’s Great King Street Glasgow Blend, the second permanent whisky to be introduced to their Great King Street range, we’ve teamed up with the award-winning Scotch whisky craft blender to give two of our readers the chance of winning a bottle of their latest release, signed by their Founder and Whisky Maker John Glaser.

Glasgow Blend has been created to provide a very different expression of the Great King Street house style. While the whiskies share the same moreishness, creaminess and approachability, Artist’s Blend is fruity, spicy and packed with vanilla, while Glasgow Blend is rich, round smoky and sherried.
This latest release offers 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 Comapass Box.

The whisky is made from approximately 67% malt whisky from the regions of Islay, the Highlands and Speyside and 33% Lowland grain whisky from a Fife distillery. It is aged in a combination of first-fill Sherry casks, first-fill and refill ex-Bourbon barrels with a small portion of new French oak finishing.
Glasgow Blend will be available from mid-October at specialist retailers for a RRP of £30.
To be in with a chance of winning a bottle, all you need to do is click here and email us your contact details along with the following phrase that dramming pays:
“I’d love to win a bountiful belting blended
bottle of great Glasgow gloriousness from
those champion crafters at Compass Box”
