Johnnie Walker Doubles Down on Smoke
Posted: October 21, 2011
(continued from page 1)
PALATE: Once again, this whisky begs to show off its peat from the start, easily out-smoking its brother Johnnie Black. Almost immediately, however, it changes its tack and lets you know how tartish it can be, with hard candy, pears and tangerines. As soon as you settle into that another mood swing occurs and the whisky becomes all cuddly and warming with bread, maple and vanilla.
FINISH: It’s at the end that the peat determines to prove whose boss as it fairly tingles at the extremities of the mouth with sour dough and smoky toast. This is a long-distance finisher that occasionally throws some fruit on to the smoke.
