This new Johnnie Walker expression is said to be a sort of homage to the USA, first matured in first-fill bourbon American white oak barrels and then finished for about 6 months in ex-rye casks. The blend is made from four whiskies including malt from Cardhu and grain from Port Dundas.

Tasting Notes

"Quite a versatile whisky that can be enjoyed both neat or as a perfect base for cocktails. Fairly easy-drinking, light and sweet with some bourbon-esque hints of vanilla, caramel & honey. Banoffee, rye bread and sweet oak spices come wrap this all up in a pleasant creamy mouthfeel."
