Johnnie Walker Gold Route Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    From Central America through the Andean mountains and along the Pacific coast, the Gold Route traverses Latin America exploring magnificent landscapes and deep, rich cultures.

    Inspired by this diversity of aromas and colours, THE GOLD ROUTE is crafted from the finest aged whiskies and produces the perfect balance of lingering smoke and exotic fruit flavours.

    These flavours come through from the very start. On the nose, you’ll perceive notes of ripe banana, mango, pitaya and sweet vanilla with accents of spice and smoke. The first sip goes deeper within the heart of Latin America; notes of exotic fruits become more vibrant. As the flavour evolves, currant and raisin emerges, together with bold, distinctive smokiness. Finally, with the last ripples of flavours, you savour the luxurious smoothness of this unique, exotic blend.

    Enjoy the vibrant flavours of THE GOLD ROUTE at their best – served neat or on the rocks.

    Personally, l did not enjoy this one. The bottle was $120 US and to me it just tastes like they took mediocre whisky and threw it in some ancient, overused, sour casks. For the money, l expected a LOT more. It talks about exotic fruits - papaya and mango... where? If you read the label after "enjoying" a dram of this you'll see how they just cobbled together some clunky story about the JW explorers deep in the South American rainforest that has absolutely nothing to do with anything. I am an experienced whisky drinker, generally enjoy Johnnie Walker products, and this one didn't do it for me. I say skip it!
