This is an 18 year age stated blend in the standard Johnnie Walker range. It’s bottled at 40% ABV.
Nose: Saltwater and lemon juice mixed with clementines, subtle smoke, and dark chocolate.
Palate: Funky oak, a bit of bitter cocoa, and a plethora of citrus juices.
Finish: Toasted oak with raw grain and orange peel – fades quickly.
Rating: 78/100 – I can’t help but think the low proof really holds this one back as it’s very faint all around with the notes being dialed down several notches. Easy to sip as a result which probably plays best to the target market for these blends.
Value for the money: This retails for around $100, and it’s an easy pass at that price.
