Johnnie Walker “The Royal Route” [Explorer’s club collection]

This is the third and most exclusive (read: expensive) of the Travel Retail Explorer’s club collection. I wont bore you with the name, and the rest of the PR details.

Tasting the new Johnnie Walker ‘Gold Route’

Tasting Johnnie Walker Double Black (finally…)

My first JW tasting notes on the blog. I was really looking for this one, not because i am a JW man, or that this one got amazing reviews. Nope. The reason for that is that JW double black was, and is the most searched term on the blog, and my previous post about its introduction into the market is …
