Swing was first launched in 1932 after inspiration for a bottle that fared transatlantic voyages, and the last bottle created by Alexander Walker II (grandson of the namesake Johnnie Walker, and one who is largely responsible for establishing the iconic whisky brand). Its “rockable” bottle is made up of about 35 whiskies most from the Speyside along with smaller quantities of both Highland and Islay malts for weight and character.
A MIX OF GRAINS AND MALTED BARLEY. FROM MORE THAN ONE DISTILLERY. DRIED WITH PEAT.
“Rich in barley malt this is easily a whisky with which to read the New York Times. It is easy on the palate, begins sweet like cane sugar, and is heightened by a quick alcohol burn. It leaves a soft, peated palate just silky enough to want to pick the glass back up. If you are adventurous , it is a blend to try but if you are just having a whisky you might as well order the JW Red, Black, or Dewar’s 12. “
