Johnnie Walker The Spice Road

Johnnie Walker The Spice Ro Johnnie Walker The Spice RoadIt may only be February, but we think we’ve already found one of our favourite whiskies of the year with the recently launched Johnnie Walker The Spice Road. This new whisky is the first in the Explorers’ Club Collectionof whiskies that take their inspiration from the travelling heritage of John Walker & Sons. The Spice Road is an evocative expression of the vibrancy, aromas and spices that the Johnnie Walker agents would have discovered in the thriving markets around Asia. As you would expect of Johnnie Walker, Spice Road provides an exceptionally smooth and rich honeyed flavour, including a touch of signature smokiness. Additionally, the whisky adds inspiration from olde world spice markets by spending time maturing in old casks for an intense finish of cloves, ginger and vanilla. Costing just £26, ‘The Spice Road’ represents an incredible bargain, although the big catch is that it’s only available from Duty Free. www.johnniewalker.com
