John Walker & Sons King George V commemorates the granting of the Royal Warrant on 1 January 1934 by King George V.
Created using only the finest whiskies from distilleries that were operating during King George’s twenty-five-year reign (1910 – 1936), some of which, like the famed Port Ellen, no longer exist. They are blended together to reflect the distinctive Johnnie Walker style of the era.
It is an opulent and regal blend. Sensuous, layered and intense, the John Walker & Sons King George V is a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas. Hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate and an imposing sweet smokiness combine elegantly with suggestions of honey, citrus orange and rose petals. This is an extremely complex luxury whisky.
Enjoy it in any way you like, but we recommend it neat. Pour a 45 ml measure into a bespoke snifter glass. Accompany with a tumbler of iced water. Freshen your palate with the water between sips to unlock the full experience.
88 Points Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2018 - "This has genuine style and breeding."
Tasting Note: The palate is smooth with a rich, fruity sweetness. Warming with subtle flavours of sandalwood and smoke. Taste is powerful, complex, rich yet smooth. A mouth warming and lingering rich peaty finish.
