Johnnie Walker XR 23 Years Old Blended Malt Whisky

Johnnie Walker is arguably the most popular and recognisable blended Scotch on the market. Its core range includes the standard Red Label and Black Label, introduced in 1909 and named, quite simply, after their packaging. The iconic “striding man” motif was first drawn by Tom Browne the year prior. The premium Blue Label brand was introduced in 1992, and is composed using malt whisky from some of the most sought after distilleries in Diageo's extensive portfolio.

A stunning, special edition John Walker & Sons XR 23 Year Old created from some of the finest malts and grains available, including some rare whisky from the Brora distillery. It’s a well-spiced, wintery expression that brings indulgent notes of sticky toffee, Christmas cake, alcohol-soaked raisins and subtle layers of vanilla that marry perfectly with cinnamon spice and gentle cardamom. This all comes packaged inside a stunning bottle and box that would look the part in any collection. This is a 23 years old blended whisky, including whisky from Cragganomore and Linkwood as well as the now silent Glasgow grain distillery of Port Dundas.

    Nose:    Blooms of orchid and peony opening in summer, spiced apple is wrapped with soft aromatic teas, before giving way to sweet coconut.

    Taste:    Warm, indulgent sweetness swirls with spiced vanilla, hints of dark chocolate and coconut cream, apple blossom and a whisper of sweet summer fragrance flowers briefly, before gentle wood spice and soft smoke drift across the taste buds.

    Finish:    A lingering finish brings warmth, hints of toffee and an elegant touch of tropical fruit.
