A limited edition from Johnnie Walker, part of the popular Blender's Batch series. To create this edition, a blend of just a few single malts was aged in first-fill bourbon and then finished for up to six months in casks that had previously held rye whiskey. The result is a dram with an intense, honeyed sweetness and lashings of warming vanilla spice.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt:
Nose: Caramel apples, Christmas spices and lingering toasted almond.
Palate: Honey, oats, drying spices and refreshing orange peel.
Finish: Still quite spicy on the finish, though layers of chocolate and fruit balance it out.
