The Gold Reserve was personally crafted by the Johnnie Walker Master Blender, who handpicked prized casks from selected reserves – each matured to perfection – to create a bold blend of intense flavours. Indulgent and luxurious, it has a smooth balance of sweet fruits and creaminess that evolves into deeper honeyed tones before finishing in lingering waves of wood, fruit and light, sweet west coast smoke.
When we saw the original Gold Label, we thought, crikey, what a shimmering, golden delight! But then we saw… Alter Ego: Gold Finger; it’s the blend, the blend with the Midas touch but, unlike this dastardly Bond villain, you can touch it. And you can drink it. In fact we’d thoroughly advise it, for it tastes of heavenly honey, smoky cedar and clotted cream.
