John Walker & Sons King George V
Product Description

A special extension of the Johnnie Walker range, King George V celebrates the first Royal Warrant granted to John Walker and Sons Ltd to supply Scotch whisky to the British Royal Household in 1934, and is apparently designed to recreate how JW might have tasted back in the day. Some Port Ellen has been used, alongside Cardhu, Lochnagar and some very old grain whisky.

    John,

    Bought this for my dad's 80th birthday. He's been a scotch drinker his adult life. He's tasted some fine scotch in his time. He would break out the bottle of Blue on special occasions. When he tasted this, he closed his eyes, grinned, and said "that is the nicest tasting scotch whiskey I've ever had". Me too.

    Michael Collins,

    Johnny Walker has only the best. Plus King George was my 2nd Great Grandfather so to have a bottle named after my ancestor is a treat indeed. Thank you for remembering my family.
