Johnnie Walker XR 21yo Blended Whisky Bottle No: 7312GJW 40%
Old leather washed in Oloroso sherry, cranberries, blueberries, dark toffee, a trace of Matabele ant scurrying along the Spanish oak and a smorgasbord of rich fruit cake and trifle.
Soft as velvet and sweet sherried on the tongue, the toffee gives way to a rich and spicy mid palate, finishing with a long lingering wooded compote of raisins and prunes.
Water releases a few more ants, a hint of smoke and naartjie(tangerine) dipped in dark chocolate.
Stunning, complex, a delight, the best Johnnie Walker and quite possibly the best blend I have ever tasted.96
