Johnnie Walker is the world’s most recognizable name in Scotch. Made by a small expert team of 12 blenders, Johnnie Walker brings together a balanced combination of flavour profiles from the different malt regions of Scotland. Known as ‘the 4 corners’ of Scotland, each distinctive style is crucial to the art of blending Johnnie Walker, from the light Lowlands style of Glenkinchie, the smooth Speyside Cardhu, the robust Island smokiness of Caol Ila, to the floral highlands of Clynelish.

John Walker & Sons King George V is an exceptional whisky, crafted to celebrate the granting of the first Royal Warrant to John Walker & Sons by King George V in 1934.

Drawing on almost 200 years of knowledge, a peerless archive of records, and decades of experience, our small team of expert blenders, led by Master Blender Jim Beveridge, hand-select precious casks of whiskies from distilleries that were in existence during King George V’s reign including whiskies from Benrinnes, Caol Ila, Cardhu and the now silent Port Ellen and Port Dundas.

Having hand-selected these individual whiskies, our dedicated team of blenders skillfully bring them together to reveal an indulgent depth of flavour – an abundance of spice and dried fruits greets you, balanced perfectly with notes of creamy vanilla sweetness, rich fruits, dark chocolate, toffee and a beautiful, intense Islay smoky finish.

Serving Suggestion:
Best enjoyed neat.

Nose Sweet, smoky aromas deepened by Port Ellen are followed by notes of orange and Mediterranean fruits and the rich fruit spiciness - raisins, figs and cinnamon – of malts from across Scotland matured in European and American oak.
Palate Rich in texture, on the palate there’s an abundance of spice and dried fruits from the Speyside and Highlands whiskies with European oak character, balanced by creamy vanilla sweetness from the malts and grains matured in American oak, together releasing layer upon layer of flavour: sweet fruits, dark chocolate, toffee, spices and roast nuts.
Finish Port Ellen intensifies the maritime Islay smokiness that gathers momentum through the exceptionally long, warming finish with hints of spice and pepper.
