Size
750ml, bottle

John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend Scotch Whisky commemorates the 200th anniversary of this iconic brand. This limited-edition blended Scotch whisky draws inspiration from the historic "Old Highland Whisky," the first expression to be exported internationally from the house of John Walker & Sons. This blend offers a rich and complex flavor profile with notes of dried fruit, spice, and gentle peat, making it a fitting tribute to a brand synonymous with quality and exploration.

Description

John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend honors the brand’s rich heritage with a complex and rewarding flavor profile. The influence of the “Old Highland Whisky” inspiration is evident in the use of whiskies matured in sherry casks.

Aroma

The initial impression offers a delightful sweetness of dried fruits like raisins and prunes, along with hints of marzipan. Subtle spice notes like cinnamon and nutmeg emerge, adding complexity. As you delve deeper, a whisper of peat smoke might peek through, hinting at the inclusion of Islay malts in the blend. A touch of honey or icing sugar sweetness might also be present, adding another layer of intrigue.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a satisfying weight on the tongue. The initial taste is a delightful explosion of sweetness and spice. The dried fruit notes from the aroma translate beautifully to the palate. Hints of marzipan and vanilla add richness, while the cinnamon and nutmeg create a warming counterpoint. The peaty influence is subtle but noticeable, adding a touch of smokiness and depth. The sherry cask influence is evident in the subtle dry character that lingers on the finish.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a medium-length finish. A gentle peat smoke lingers along with hints of dried fruit and spice. The sherry cask influence contributes a touch of dryness that balances the sweetness and creates a lasting impression.
