Johnnie Walker King George V (Blended, 43% abv)
Nose: It looks very fresh and elegant with the scents of apple, pear, dried fruit, chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut and oak. It is also possible to get very light sooty odors.
Palate: Vanilla, caramel, honey, oak and again very light soot. I can say that it is a little more spicy compared to the nose. The harmony of fruity and spicy flavors is nice. Full and smooth drink.
Finish: Fruity, spicy and slightly sooty, long finish.
Overall: Johnnie Walker King George V makes you feel that it is a special whiskey with its flavor as well as its story and bottle. An easy-drinking, full-bodied blend with fruity, spicy and very, very light sooty flavors.
