Creating yet another bold testament to the endless boundaries of flavours, Johnnie Walker together with Master Blender, Jim Beveridge has unveiled the Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish — a whisky that is expertly married and finished in ex-Sherry oak casks that held sherry from the Jerez region of Spain.
This sun-baked corner in southwestern Spain offers a fragrance and smoothness which is locked into whisky that is well-balanced and has been matured for at least 15 years. This new expression made using the finest Scotch whiskies is available in both China, Taiwan, and now Malaysia.
Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Jim Beveridge, carefully selected whiskies that have been matured for at least 15 years and finished these whiskies using ex-Sherry oak barrels from Jerez. Courtesy of the nourishment from the authentic Spanish sherry, the whisky carries a kind of sweetness and depth that is exclusively obtained from that region of Spain.
A Brand-New Aged Sherry Cask Whisky with Subtle Sweetness and Great Depth for Asian Palates
The Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish perfectly exhibits the flavours of candied fruits, dried fruits, and coco exclusive to sherry. On the nose, a slight floral aroma along with the fragrance of baked apples, honey and vanilla is present without the usual trace of smokiness, while it presents notes of candied fruits, chocolate and nuts exclusive to sherry on the palate, followed by an exquisite floral fragrance. This is a classic flavour profile from the Clynelish Distillery located in the Highland region of Scotland.
Together with the aromas of fruit cake and dried fruits exclusive to the Glen Elgin Distillery, there is a great depth of flavour finished off with honey and candied-fruit endnotes that linger after every sip. Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish offers a sweet and aromatic experience, which makes it the perfect accompaniment for any meal occasion — especially with Asian cuisine.
