This expression has been discontinued. However, there are still a lot of retail stores that have it. For my money, this is the best of the Johnnie Walker Range, a vatted blend of Talisker and Caol Ila, Linkwood, Cragganmore to name a few. The nose has some coffee and wood, smoked fruits. The palate is well balanced and rich, chocolate, nuts, very mild smoke. The finish is spicy and sweet, nice length here. This would be a good bottle to stash away before they are all gone.
