A special extension of the Johnnie Walker range, King George V celebrates the first Royal Warrant granted to John Walker and Sons Ltd to supply Scotch whisky to the British Royal Household in 1934, and is apparently designed to recreate how JW might have tasted back in the day. Some Port Ellen has been used, alongside Cardhu, Lochnagar and some very old grain whisky.
92 Points Wine Enthusiast - Slightly disappointing bouquet features smells of roasted walnut, figs, dates and beeswax. Palate entry is honey-sweet, fruitcake-like, with flavors of pineapple, apricot and white raisins; midpalate becomes deeper with layers of oak, resin, oloroso Sherry, dark caramel, dark bittersweet chocolate and egg cream. Concludes with power and grace. Delicious.
