Johnnie Walker King George V Scotch Whiskey
Johnnie Walker King George V Scotch Whiskey is a very special edition from Johnnie Walker, packaged beautifully and made to celebrate the Royal Warrant bestowed upon the company by the monarch. This is made with some of Johnnie Walker’s rarest stocks, including Cardhu, Lochnagar and even Port Ellen. Receiving a score of 97 Points, it was named Whisky of the Year at the International Whisky Competition 2015.
Nose: Rich, spicy aromas with hints of Christmas pudding, brandy butter and vanilla. Slightly nutty too, with notes of ground almond and blossom.
Palate: Fruity, creamy palate entry. Creamy notes of caramel, manuka honey and a hint of very refined wood smoke. Allspice and nutmeg develop.
Finish: Nutty finish with a surge of salt caramel and biscuity malt.
It all began in 1819 when Johnnie Walker used his inheritance from his father’s passing to purchase a grocer’s shop in Kilmarnock. Here he started blending his grocer’s stock of single malts because he wanted to introduce (and enjoy) a consistent flavor profile. Naturally, Johnnie had a talent for blending, and his blends became a hit with his customers. Johnnie knew to “Keep Walking” despite the loss of his father and the world is grateful for it. Johnnie’s son and grandsons continued to grow the brand and whiskies to introduce the labels that we know and love today.
Johnnie Walker Scotches are held in high esteem and continue to hold a Royal Warrant, which was granted on New Year’s Day 1934 by King George V to supply whisky to the royal household. The Special Edition King George V scotch commemorates the wonderful honor of holding the Royal Warrant.
