JOHN WALKER & SONS XR 21  BLEND MALT WHISKY 750ML

PRODUCT OF SCOTLAND

700ML 40%VOL

Appearance

XR is is the oldest Walker available worldwide. It comes in a fancy decanter-style bottle with a gold colored (plastic) stopper. On top of that, the whole works is packaged in a metallic gold box, which features a striking cut-out that reminds me of a hybridized Maltese cross and a Celtic cross.

I really do appreciate the heavy glass base of the bottle. The thing seems heavy enough to bludgeon an orc or even a balrog (if you happen to be a Lord of the Rings fan).

Color

Within the rather substantial bottle, you will find a whisky with a golden appearance that takes on a deep vermilion hue depending on the lighting (thanks, in part, to artificial coloring). Frankly, it’s worth mentioning that the whisky in my glass appears quite a bit more gold when compared with advertisements online that remind me of burnished copper.

Nose

 

The scent gives off a mysterious waft of fruits. Would it be a “cop out” to admit that these defy precise association due to the blend at work here? I can’t pick out a single kind of fruit, but no matter. Vanilla and lotus flower mingle with a pleasantly noncommittal type of fruitiness, along with some woodiness from 21 years or more in quite a few different casks.
