Johnnie Walker Explorers' Club Collection - The Royal Route is inspired by the majestic history and the sights of the royal trading route, famed for bringing the luxuries of the world to the hands of Kings. The travellers' tales of the legendary journeys that took place on this road, the precious silks, Persian ornaments, diamonds and pearls that were traded along it, inspired today's Master Blender to create the most opulent variant in the series. Full of rich, intense flavours, it is a whisky fit for kings. Blended harmoniously and carefully refined, the dark amber-hued whisky is sourced from the finest hand selected oak casks from the most exclusive reserve cellars of Johnnie Walker.
93 Points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2018 "A fabulous journey, travelling first class, most of the way."
Tasting Note: The Royal Route delivers far more depth of character, with richer, multiple layers on the palate.
