Originally released for the Travel Retail Market, Johnnie Walker's Island Green blended malt is a variation on their popular (and recently relaunched) Green Label, made with a hearty helping of smoky Islay whisky at its core. Also, the name reminds us of Weezer's song 'Island in the Sun' from their Green album.
Nose: Fruity coffee with a whiff of earthy smoke. Subtle caramel hints later on.
Palate: Grilled apricot and date, drying spices, milk chocolate.
Finish: Burnt oak, raisins and red apples.
