Johnnie Walker 18 Years launched

KATHMANDU: Johnnie Walker 18 Years is an indulgent blend of up to 18 different whiskies each chosen for their remarkable depth of flavour and character and was previously known as Johnnie Walker Platinum Label.

The new name and luxury packaging celebrate the blend’s credentials as the best 18-year-old blended Scotch whisky ever created by Johnnie Walker, as per a media release. It is hand-crafted by Jim Beveridge — twice voted ‘Master Blender of the Year’ — who sought out the ultimate combination of complex and smooth 18-year-old whiskies drawn from the main whisky producing regions of Scotland.

Best savoured neat or on the rocks, Johnnie Walker 18 Years has rich sweet fruit aromas along with toffee caramel, vanilla and a hint of smoke.

It is warming and sweet on the palate, while a lingering finish brings notes of dark chocolate, caramelised citrus peel and very light smoke. — HNS
