Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Colour: Amber

    Nose: The initial aromas are full of freshness and vibrancy – grassy notes, crisp green apples and pineapples from the Speyside malts.

    These evolve into the heady Highland aromas with the autumnal richness of stewed apples, and then the spicy dried West Highland fruits emerge with orange peel and dried apricots.

    These are balanced by sweet fudge notes provided to the blend from American oak casks.

    With a few drops of water, the blend develops floral notes reminiscent of the sun-baked Highland heather moor, then into estery pear drops.

    Palate: The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety.

    Here the Speyside fruit character is present as orange citrus and passion fruit.  The Highland whiskies appear as sweet and succulent ripe melons, and there is a West Highland dusky peach skin sweetness.  Hints of honey are rounded off by a delicate sweetness from the grain whiskies.

    Long years of maturation of the experimental cask whiskies deliver underlying notes of vanilla and a touch of rich fruits. As these flavours begin to fade, a very subtle hint of the John Walker & Sons signature smoke arrives, leading to a sweet, slightly warming finish.

    In a perfect world this would be there Blue Label offering. Easy to drink. Sweet but not too so. You can tell its something special. I had mine neat and always prefer all my whiskies that way so I definitely felt the extra alcohol. Maybe not quite worth the price, but if I could afford it I'd buy it.
