Johnnie Walker Islay Bottling Note
Released as part of the Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin series, this here is the Islay Origin expression! It marries a blend of Islay malts, including the likes of Caol Ila and Lagavulin. The whisky is designed to be just as delicious in dram form (yeah, that’s probably what it’s called) as it is in a Highball, and this particular expression works wonders when paired with ginger ale.
Nose: Iodine, toffee, orange, you’d swear there was some sherry here though apparently there isn’t.
Palate: In the mouth it’s peppery with dried fruit, fresh red fruits and honey, with the smoke lingering but not dominating. Meaty and full.
Finish: Smoke and a little toffee.
