The replacement premium blend for Johnnie Walker’s popular Gold Label 18. It’s structured around single malt whisky from Clynelish.
Nose: Honey and heather with thick caramel notes and a subtle nutmeg spice. Dried meadow flowers and a hint of fresh banana.
Palate: Smooth and succulent with a honeyed sweetness that’s typical of Johnnie Walker. There’s more to this though, the floral elements are quite prominent and there’s a spiced sweet vanilla note too.
Finish: Long, sweet and toffee-like.
Overall: A typically easy drinking blend from Johnnie Walker, this will not disappoint fans of the style.
