Johnnie Walker King George V Whisky 70cl
This whisky from Johnnie Walker promises a 'Very Royal Secret' for your tastebuds
Johnnie Walker King George V Whisky
Whilst Jonnie Walker make a number of different whiskies, within their standard range it's their Blue Label which is the rarest.
However, they also release a number of special editions too. When looking at these, their King George V whisky is a celebration of John Walker & Sons (as they were known) receiving their first Royal Warrant in 1934 by King George V.
To create this the Johnnie Walker makers have hand-selected some of Johnnie Walker's rarest stocks, and only those which existed during King George V's reign. This results in a truly special, elegant blend made with whiskys including Cardhu, Lochnagar, and irreplaceable casks from the now-closed Port Ellen distillery
On the nose the sweet, smoky aromas from Port Ellen greet you. This is followed with notes of orange, raisins, figs and warm cinnamon.
On the palate the flavours from Speyside and Highland whiskies of abundant spice and dried fruits are balanced with enticing vanilla. As this warms in thr mouth layers of sweet fruits, dark chocolate, toffee and roast nuts are released.
The finish brings Port Ellen forward again, giving a coastal smokiness which gathers momentum through the extended finish.

This is truly a whisky to be savoured, and we loved this best at room temperature with just a dash of water. However, as with all whisky - enjoy as you like it!
