Colour: full gold.
Nose: less malty and nutty and a tad smoky. Garden bonfire, barbecue, flowers (dandelions). Wax.
Mouth: cream, with more flavours and smokiness. Very obvious peatiness, spices, orange liqueur, fudge and pepper.
Finish: long and peppery.
Comments: Johnnie Red used to be a big whisky. Twenty five years of bottle ageing added a pleasant complexity. Bargain - Especially since this may well contain some Brora
An antique bottle of Johnnie Walker Red Label, one of the most well known blended whiskies worldwide. Well preserved since it was produced in the 1960s, this would be an excellent piece in a spirits collection.
