Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

John Walker King George V Reviews


Probably one of the best Christmas presents I have been given for a very long time. This is an outstanding whisky. I’m not a great fan of peat but the blend here is just fabulous. The smoke rounds out some fabulous dark pudding, marmalade and honey characteristics that make this an extremely opulent blend. I have shared a bit with some whisky loving friends - but no more!

This Scotch is by far the single best glass of whisky that I have ever had.

My wife gave me a bottle of JWKGV as a Christmas present. I must admit, at first I was fairly upset at her for spending God knows what on this bottle, but then after mustering up the courage to open that gorgeous bottle, I had a glass. My disapproval of her purchase was quickly replaced with a reminder of why she's the best wife. This is something that I would never purchase for myself, but she would without hesitation.
This Scotch is by far the single best glass of whisky that I have ever had. If you are on the fence about purchasing a bottle, don't worry, you will not be disappointed.

If you like Platinum, you will like King George V.

It's a high level of quality... DEFINITELY, won't disappoint. Great nose and just the bottle is a conversation, on its own!!

As a long time JW purveyor, this tasting has been a long time in the making so I finally took the plunge and am glad I did. While relatively pricey, this is a refined treat of velvet-silk which I am glad to have tasted. I will keep this bottle as long as possible. :)

Mr Walker's Opus

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.
