Tasting Notes

"A slightly exotic twist on the more traditional Johnnie Walker as you know it. The nose includes peat, tropical fruit like mango and banana, plus ginger, vanilla, and woody smoke. The taste is a bit thin but boasts medicinal flavors like seaweed, salt, and peat alongside pineapple, vanilla, grain, and orange zest. The finish is short and brings a little more smoke. While it may not be the Scotch equivalent of trekking through the Andes laden with stolen Incan gold, it's still an above-average blend. "
