John Walker & Sons ‘XR 21’ Blended Scotch Whisky
John Walker & Sons ‘XR 21’ was created to honour Alexander Walker II knighthood received from King George V in 1920, given for his services to the nation & his devotion to create exceptional whiskies. Inspired by Sir Alexander’s own hand-written notes, this is blended from the exclusive Johnnie Walker reserve of rare whiskies, all of which have been matured for a full 21 years.
Assured, balanced and elegant, it has intriguing layers of intensity that are both surprising and delightful. Sweet honey and tempered spices come cloaked in warming smoke. Citrus zest, ripened tropical fruits and caramel swirl within hints of tobacco and raisins. The long, smooth, soothing finish is complex and fascinating – a myriad of influences played out over a subtle tapestry of peatiness.
First crafted in a humble grocer’s shop, Johnnie Walker has taken blended Scotch whisky from the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world. Today, this pioneering and innovative spirit has seen the brand become a stylish global icon.
First created in 1908, the Striding Man has become one of the world’s most recognized brand icons and is symbolic of progress for all those who enjoy Johnnie Walker. Led by Master Blender Jim Beveridge, our team of Johnnie Walker blenders uphold our reputation for quality and consistency and are driven by a desire to constantly innovate.
