Vanilla, orange peel
This one from Johnnie Walker has been quite the talk of the town or at least in my part of town. At 21 years of age, I expect the price to be prohibitive but it isn’t which is good because everyone can have a taste of what the world can offer.
On the nose, things are certainly citrusy and refreshing. While easy in the mouth, I expect a more complex tasting note given its age. Yes finish is smooth but a medium to short one. To me, the XR 21 is good over casual dinner with those who aren’t too particular for whisky or for those who are just starting out in whisky journey. It is by no means a bad bottle but not one I'll crave for, which got me scratching because why in the world did I get two.
