J Walker ECC The GOLD Route 1L

Nose: medium sweet, with a soft fruitiness of banana and pitahaya. More vanilla than in other J.W. versions. Lemon zest, oranges and ginger. Fresh but all quite subtle, there’s still a prevailing idea of grains and a vague spiciness. Mouth: not too bold, sweet and grainy. Mixed fruit syrups. Now slightly more tropical: hints of pineapple juice and guava. Vanilla again. Some caramel. Faint trademark smoke in the background.
Finish: not too long, showing spices and light smoke.The Gold Route is an above average blend, although there’s quite some Johnnie Walker “genericness” to be found in the mix, if you know what I mean. The promised tropical fruit notes that should evoke Latin America don’t stand out very well, so it’s slightly hard to justify its single malt price level.
