This edition, titled 'Fine Honeyed Notes', focuses on the sweeter flavours within the Johnnie Walker range, with some of the 100 casks coming from four closed grain distilleries – Caledonian, Cambus, Carsebridge and Port Dundas.

Producer's Tasting Notes
The first impression is of the vibrant, fragrant, honeyed notes from the mature Single Grain Scotch Whiskies. These evolve into fresh fruit and light floral notes.
Sipping the blend, the texture is incredibly soft and creamy. The first Grain Whisky character to appear is a blend of heady, aromatic, honey sweetness. As these myriad flavours swirl around the palate, American oak fudge and vanilla notes of the second Grain Whisky emerge to balance and bring depth.
As the layers are revealed further, the soft, warm fruits associated with the Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky come through as pears and apple skins, with a background echo of estery sweetness through to the finish.
