Johnny Walker 15 Years Sherry Finish Launched in Malaysia

Think Johnnie Walker and you'll probably be familiar with their colour coded brand range - Red, Black Green, Gold, Platinum, Blue....Yes the Walker family is popularly loved for their blended whiskies, and the newly launched Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish is no exception. 

Cardhu, Glen Elgin and Clynelish are some of the single malts that went into the making of the 15YO.

Made with a blend of 15-year-old single malt whiskies then finished in ex-Sherry oak casks, this new expression is only available in selected locations - both China, Taiwan, and now Malaysia. 

It's unlike the usual JW as it's on the sweeter side and have none of the usual signature Walker smoke, making it a an easy accompaniment to Asian cuisines, as we discovered it for ourselves at the launch lunch that feature a yummy-licious Chinese seafood menu by One Seafood Restaurant


Official tasting notes: Exhibiting flavors 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.
