Spongy dense fruit cake, creamy and white chocolate.

Finish
Medium length. The creamy notes are strong, and the finish has a lot of white chocolate and fruit cake sweetness in it.

Beautiful balanced again. We have done a tasting of different expressions of Johnnie Walker now, and must say that we are impressed by these blends. Rich in flavour and good value for money. Scoring this one a 7 out of 10.
