Johnnie Walker 18 years old Platinum Label Scotch
$139.99 (unless otherwise stated in the description, price is per bottle)
Johnnie Walker Platinum sits between gold and blue in Walker's extensive range of blends. It carries an 18 year old age statement and comes in a very smart box.
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.
