Tasting Notes by Alanjp
I was drawn to this bottling after seeing an interview with John Glaser on the whisky marketplace video done by Connosr’s very own Pierre! The small bottle makes a difference as it stood out once I’d put it on my cabinet next to my other bottles! Anyway to the main bit of the review! The whisky had an almost dusty yellow colour to it, and at first I thought it was just my glass, but after pouring it into another one the colour remained. It wasn’t a dirty colour though, certainly did put me off the dram! I found it very sweet on the nose, came across like a bag of Haribo to be honest! There was also a hint of roses, adding a nice floral edge to it. The sweetness was there in the taste as well, again with the Haribo likeness, to be specific I would compare it to the white bit on the heart shaped sweets they do! There was a bit of oomph to it as well, and the finish left a strange (yet not unwelcome) fizzy feeling on my tongue. That died down and left a softness there, leaving me wanting more! Overall I thought the Great King Street Artists Blend is a well rounded and enjoyable whisky, which made the small bottle work against it, as it is emptying quickly and more will have to be bought!
