(UB Collection,Finalist)- Eye-catching golden wheat field color. Dense, dusty dry aromas include breakfast cereal, cookie batter, dough, worn leather, banana, guava. Taste-wise, it’s flowery, complex, grainy, with hints of Graham cracker, allspice, vanilla bean. Finishes creamy, elegant, toasty. Seriously luscious.
Nose: Sweet rich and deep notes with maraschino cherries, toffee caramel, vanilla, baked rhubarb crumble and a very thin whiff of smoke. Palate: The richness continues onto the palate, which is sweet and warming, with creamy malt, oats and cereal. A spicy vanilla cinnamon dusting too with the gentle smoke again developing.
Finish: Dark chocolate with caramalised peel. Overall: Another pleasing blend from Johnnie Walker, this is quite different from the gold label.
The earliest days of their business, the Walker family and subsequent generations of Master Blenders have crafted exclusive Scotch Whiskies for the directors of their company and for private gatherings – treasured whiskies that have only ever been shared with a select few, at special occasions. Inspired by this tradition, JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM LABEL™ is a supremely rich and full-flavored 18 year old Scotch Whisky, created for those truly special moments.
