    Johnnie Walker Swing Blended Scotch Whiskey

    Johnnie Walker Swing Blended Scotch Whiskey is named Swing after the rocking motion the bottle makes when pushed. Naturally this is a collectible item. The legend behind this blend is that Sir Alexander Walker (grandson of John Walker), on one of his transatlantic voyages headed to or returning from New York, spent time in the bar and noticed how the bottles would move and shift due to the movement of the ocean liner upon the seas.  The bartender struggled to keep the bottles in racks in an effort to prevent breakage.  Sir Alex was thinking that there has got to be a better away.  So, he thought and thought, and ordered his minions to design a bottle that would not be caused to fall  over in such a nautical setting.

    Nose
    Invitingly floral with gentle sherry notes, followed by a wisp of smoke.  Malty too.

    Palate
    Sweet wild honey smeared on dark toast.  Light sherry notes (think dark red fruit) make an appearance before a transition to spiced vanilla and butterscotch.

    Finish
    Sherry still there.  Some oak comes to the forefront before fading to a final dark red fruit note (due to the sherry influence.)
