Re: Blended Whiskies - April 3-12
Johnnie Walker Black
vanilla, followed by gentle peat, sea salt air.
The taste experience commences with smooth, sweet cinnamon, caramel, almond, brown sugar, malt (think Cheerios breakfast cereal), some spiciness, but not to the point of pepper, which evaporates quickly into clouds of subtle peat and smoke.
Very restrained peat with a flourish of smoke and grains of sea salt round out this scotch tasting experience. The flavor does not linger long though if you have added ice. Where no ice is added, you will enjoy some lingering sea salt, restrained black licorice, peat and smoke enveloping the palate in a silky, luxuriant finish. No burn and only the slightest of heat (in a good way) upon swallowing, as this is very, very smooth!
I really enjoy this as a weekday evening drink. Its the blend against which I measure all the others.
