The John

Had a sample of The John Walker delivered today. When I saw that the DHL man was in fact a woman I instantly new there was something special in the pipeline.

The sample is small and I could only have half of it (Chris is getting the other half) but given the £2000 price tag I am inclined to forgive Diageo on this occasion. I am not going to say anything about the juice quite yet, I want to sleep on it. All I can reveal is that it made me think and it surprised me in more than one way. I have extensive tasting notes and perhaps opinions you are not expecting from me in my notebook. Will try and feed all that to The Matrix tomorrow so stay tuned.


PS. Also on the blog in the immediate future: New book from Dave Broom, Jura 200th Anniversary Edition and Connemara Turf Mor peated to 50ppm tasted!
