King George V is a very special edition from Johnnie Walker, packaged beautifully and made to celebrate the Royal Warrant bestowed upon the company by the monarch. This is made with some of Johnnie Walker's rarest stocks, including Cardhu, Lochnagar and even Port Ellen.
Receiving a score of 97 Points, it was named Whisky of the Year at the International Whisky Competition 2015.
Nose: Rich, spicy aromas with hints of Christmas pudding, brandy butter and vanilla. Slightly nutty too, with notes of ground almond and blossom.
Palate: Fruity, creamy palate entry. Creamy notes of caramel, manuka honey and a hint of very refined wood smoke. Allspice and nutmeg develop.
Finish: Nutty finish with a surge of salt caramel and biscuity malt.

I had the very memorable pleasure of savouring a glass of this at a special Johnnie Walker XR21 event in mid-2016 (the XR21 was free-flow, the King George V was but one glass... generously poured, happily). I've had a lot of special whiskies over the years -- single-cask bottlings, limited editions, some 40- and 50-year-olds... but I genuinely don't think any single glass of whisky has left quite the impression on me as this one did. Rich, creamy, multidimensional, beautifully balanced -- a genuinely sublime whisky of stunning character and depth. This is a whisky to be absolutely reveled in. Eyes closed, the world blocked out. One day, I will take the plunge and lay down the cash for a bottle of King George V and never regret the purchase, though it's admittedly a significant plunge to take. You would expect a masterpiece at this price point -- and you'll get it.

It is very costly

I've been waiting to open this bottle for a while now and it didn't disappoint. Creamy and smooth with packaging that sets the right mood before taste. Its by far the best scotch I've tasted and so it should be at this price. I also did not like Johhnie Walker Blue Label and this is very smooth and very different to it.

There's almost Digestif quality to it, as it has that smooth, yet sweet quality to it, making it a great alternative to dessert after a nice meal, or to enjoy during a special evening. It is a great treat to the palate, as it is playful but not overpowering or overwhelming. It is a bit pricey, but I'd recommend it to anyone who collects whisky (like my husband and I do).

it's truly one of the best whiskies i've had.

Very nice, as well it should be for this price - smooth, deep taste, some smoke, complex and lush - BUT really think it's overpriced for a blend and perhaps says more about the power of Johnnie Walker's marketing people than the quality of the whiskies themselves

This is something like never before.. smooth, delicate and very very fine taste.
