Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch
Ok so first off - it’s a JW blend that is priced right and isn’t trying to fool you into thinking it’s something more than it really is (looking at you $200 JW Blue). It’s a bottle of cheap unique (red wine cask finished) blended whisky and I can’t fault JW for that.
Smelling this is full of young grain and a little fruit and cherries.
The Taste is what you would expect. Thin, sweet, boring.
The Finish is immediate….maybe a little grain spice hanging back
This isn’t terrible for what it is. In fact - I can verify that after 12 hours of walking the Disney resorts with a 7yr old and a newborn this whisky works just fine on it’s own in a tumbler.
Overall Grade: C
