Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 18 Year Old blends big, classic Johnnie Walker flavours with intriguing contemporary notes of citrus and fragrant almonds. Initially sweet with a warm vanilla undercurrent and a suggestion of tangerines, it moves smoothly over the palate into a nutty, malty dryness before a long finish brings elegant suggestions of soft charcoal smokiness and a beautifully fading citrus zest.
In times gone by, whiskies were set aside by Johnnie Walker master blenders for the purpose of making ‘private blends’. These were extra special blends given as personal gifts in acknowledgement of an exceptional relationship. Whether for customer, employee, business partner or friend, they were highly prized by those who received them. The spirit of them lives on in Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 18 Year Old, an exquisitely-crafted blend for the 21st Century that draws inspiration from the richness of the past.
