10 Highest-Scoring Whiskies in the Fall 2020 Buying Guide - Whisky Advocate

Compass Box Great King Glasgow Blend...$29.99

Compass Box Great King Street Glasgow Blend Scotch
93 points, 43% ABV, $40

Honey, vanilla, poached pears in cream, driftwood bonfires, and a sprinkle of wood spices comprise a clean, focused, and well-balanced nose. A golden and silky palate of sweet honey, vanilla, white chocolate, and lemon zest, with plenty of body. Enter caramel; the smoke cuts to the front, outstripping aromatic spices, orchard fruit, and baked citrus flavors. Compelling and moreish: drink whenever it’s raining in Glasgow and you can’t go wrong. —Jonny McCormick
