Johnnie Walker & Sons King George V Blended Scotch Whisky 750ml
A special extension of the Johnnie Walker range, King George V celebrates the first Royal Warrant granted to John Walker and Sons Ltd to supply Scotch whisky to the British Royal Household in 1934, and is apparently designed to recreate how JW might have tasted back in the day. Some Port Ellen has been used, alongside Cardhu, Lochnagar and some very old grain whisky
Nose: Profound smoky initial aroma followed by sweet, fresh fruit (apples, pears, bananas) malt characteristics; developing into rich dried fruit/spicy complexity (raisins, figs, cinnamon).
Palate: Smooth with a rich, fruity sweetness. Warming with subtle flavours of sandalwood and smoke.
Taste: Powerful, complex, rich and smooth.
Finish: Mouth warming and lingering rich peaty finish.
