Introduced to the Great King Street range by Compass Box in 2014, the Glasgow Blend is a superbly full-bodied blended Scotch whisky. It's made with 33% Lowland grain whisky and 67% malt whisky from the Highlands, Speyside and Islay, aged in a combination of first-fill and refill ex-bourbon barrels and first-fill Sherry casks, with a small portion being finished in new French oak. Plentiful amounts of Sherried fruit touches surrounding a core of peaty notes - yummers.
Fun note: The label features a picture of The Wellington Statue outside of Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art, complete with traffic cone hat, said to be a symbol of the city's sense of humour.
