In 1820, John Walker started out in business with a single small shop, but he always had big ambitions. Just over a century later, John Walker & Sons was awarded a Royal Warrant by King George V. By then, Johnnie Walker was already well on its way to becoming the world’s most popular Scotch Whisky. Becoming a supplier to the Royal Household was an important step on that journey. John Walker & Sons King George V commemorates the granting of the Royal Warrant on 1 January 1934. It is created using only the finest whiskies from distilleries that were operating during George’s twenty-five-year reign (1910 – 1936), some of which, like the famed Port Ellen, no longer exist. They are blended together to reflect the distinctive Johnnie Walker style of the era. It is an opulent and regal blend. Sensuous, layered and intense, the John Walker & Sons King George V is a kaleidoscope of flavors and aromas. Hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate and an imposing sweet smokiness combine elegantly with suggestions of honey, citrus orange and rose petals. This is an extremely complex luxury whisky. Appearance: Clear, dark golden with bright golden highlights. Aroma: Fruity Christmas cake soaked in sherry with linseed oil, nuts, vanilla and daffodil floral aromas. Taste: Huge yet graceful with generous sweet fruit, vanilla, caramel and honey balanced by dry lightly smoky oak and spice. Aftertaste: Long, surprisingly smoky, salty, spicy finish.
