Johnny Smoking Gun is a story of East Meets West. This is a whiskey crafted specifically to compliment the “umami” of the rich pork and fish broths of Japanese cuisine. Possessing intriguing smoke character from a two-stage maceration with a proprietary blend of Asian tea, this blend of 7 year old corn and young rye will surely not disappoint.
Its sweet and smoky bouquet stars notes of leather and tobacco. Initially, the whiskey is full of corn and vanilla sweetness before hints of campfire and spicy rye come out. It finishes similar to the nose: full of tobacco, leather, and toasted oak.
