Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Triple Grain American Oak – Aged 10 Years

Hope you all enjoyed your St. Patrick’s Day weekend. My weekend was filled with whisky tastings and March Madness basketball games. For those that partied to much or are crying over your bracket’s, no worries, I’ll keep this post short.

Johnnie Walker has put out a new release. I may not be happy about the standings of my bracket but stumbling across this product and getting a chance to tasted it, made up for that.

The blending giant recently released their new limited edition Blenders’ Batch Triple Grain American Oak. The blend is aged 10 years in American Oak Casks. It is composed of five whiskies: three grain whiskies using wheat, barley and corn are blended with malts from Cardhu and Mortlach.

Tasting Notes
Nose: oak, vanilla, fruit and sweet
Palate: vanilla, spices, wood and slight notes of honey
Finish: smooth and elegant

OK, I am impressed! The results are simply beautiful. I wasn’t too sure about tasting this whisky but it’s good and all the notes work very well together. There is an initial bite upon tasting but that quickly mellows and smoothens out as the sweet notes kick in. It is elegant and sophisticated.

I like this whisky and I think the quality is superb. It’s a great, unique product that is worth tasting. Listen, the taste isn’t the only good thing about it, the price is as well. The product is selling for an average of $30-$40.  I’d certainly recommend trying.

Cheers
