Johnie Walker John Walker & Sons – The John Walker
Mature fruits slowly supersede aromas of fresh citrus. A vanilla oak sweetness is framed by a certain zest of the great classic Johnnie Walker Speyside whiskies, including Mortlach, which bring elegant structure and enormous body. Smooth & mellow, reaching its climax in rich smokiness. So many big characters, malt and grain, smoke and richness, are all held together in harmony and controlled balance with smoothness. The John Walker has been created to capture the essence of the founder: powerful but quiet and elegant; giant flavours, slowly unfolding with great dignity. Controlled power and richness building finally to a crescendo and then, the elegant rich smoke bringing this to a close.
