Johnnie Walker Black Label Highlands Origin, 42%

Price: $46 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

With Clynelish and Teaninich at its heart, this expression spotlights Black Label's rich fruit character, with a nose of marmalade on well-done toast, nectarine, liquid honey, candied peel, dry spices, and bourbon biscuits. Rounded orange notes with creamy vanilla and peppery spices; the spices are amplified with touches of oak char as the marmalade flavors die back. Sweet, spicy, creamy finish of orange fondant.
