Whisky Reviews for Great King Street Glasgow Blend

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Sweet strawberry licorice nose, peat is well integrated and complimentary. Nice peppery spice on the palate, charred peppers, oak.

  2. penumbra scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    When you drink Dafa, it can be regarded as a high vintage Laphroaig. The subtle floral and fruity fragrance and the handsome peat complement each other. Of course, under the fine taste, you will still feel that the kittens are reduced-the wine is not good, high The base wine of the vintage has been reduced-it has the smell of white wood from oak barrels, but who cares? The single malt at the same price is afraid that even the previous advantages will not be touched, and in my heart the name CB is right.
    • Nose
      Feng Zhuchen's fragrant flowers are exhausted, gentle Laphroaig (eyebrow pencil, vanilla ice cream, confetti, soot), CB's old friend-citrus, fruity and elegant, banana, honey, pear. After reading the ingredient list, I can really realize a trace of the body of a kitten, a very small amount of salt and Shirley.
    • Taste
      Medium peat, white pepper, like a new barrel of Coal ila and Laphroaig mixture, sweet and pleasant, white chocolate, vanilla tea, cinnamon water. Slightly sour fruit, grape, strawberry, grapefruit, apricot, dried flower fragrance, kerosene.

      Medium, oily, sweet, slightly sour, no tannin, no astringency, bitter bottom, no spicy feeling.
    • Finish
      Medium, soot, ginkgo, honey.
