Discover More About Our Products

Johnnie Walker is the holder of the largest reserves of Scotch whiskey in the world and also produces more Scotch whisky than any other whisky house. The brand can trace its roots to 1819 when John Walker set up a grocer's shop in Kimarnock where he started to blend different whiskies so that what the customers received would taste just as good every time. It was his son, Alexander, who launched the first commercial blend, which was soon available all over the globe.

Johnnie Walker Swing is a special edition offered by the company. The most obvious feature is the distinctive bottle/ which gives the product its name. The irregular bottom on the bottle allows for the whisky to rock back and forth without falling over. The bottle was originally designed for use on sailing ships so that the bottles would not fall over with the movement of the waves. Inside the bottle is the final blend from Johnnie Walker's grandson, Alexander Walker II, which contains a large percentage of Speyside malts blended with malts from Islay and the northern Highlands.

The rich gold colour is sure to draw you in. The smell is complex, yet sweet and accessible. Smooth, sweet, oaky, and fruity, this is an excellent addition to the collection of any Johnnie Walker fan or any Scotch drinker in general. Buy it for the bottle, repeat for the flavour.

Description of Johnnie Walker Swing

Johnnie Walker Swing

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Johnnie Walker Swing presents an alluring rich golden hue.
  • Aroma: A sweet and complex nose with caramel, sherry cask, and vanilla notes.
  • Taste: Candied citrus fruit and buttery smoke, fresh and smooth, with a lingering finish of rich sherry sweetness. A big, bold, textured mouthful, like wild honey on slightly-burnt toast.

PRODUCER: John Walker & Sons, now owned by Diageo but first established in Kilmarnock, Scotland by grocer John Walker. Johnnie Walker whiskies are sold in almost every country in the world, making it the most widely distributed whisky brand. John Walker's son Alexander Walker developed the brand's usual signature square bottle in 1860, allowing more bottles to fit within packaging and reducing the risk of breakages.

COUNTRY: Scotland

PRODUCTION DETAILS: This no-age-statement blended whisky was introduced in 1932, named for the rocking motion of the bottle when it is pushed. Legend has it that Sir Alexander Walker II, grandson of founder John Walker, was on a transatlantic journey and noted that bottles in the bar would move about dangerously when the ocean liner was at sea. When he returned home, he set his company the task of creating a special whisky contained in a bottle which could weather any storm. Alexander Walker II's last blend, Johnnie Walker Swing contains a high proportion of Speyside malts, beautifully blended with northern Highlands and Islay malts.
