Regarded as the mightiest of all zodiac animals, the Wood Dragon emerges from an ancient forest as a symbol of life and creativity in this Johnnie Walker Limited Edition design, a portent of future prosperity that embraces the defiant optimism of ‘keep walking’.
Just as maturing whiskies blossom into life after careful aging in wooden casks, in 2024 the year of the Wood Dragon helps good fortunes flourish. Reimagined by Asian-American artist and cultural pioneer, James Jean, the evergreen Wood Dragon springs from bountiful flora and fauna and bursts to life with auspicious ambition.
James Jean is a Taiwanese-American artist known for his intricate and detailed illustrations, paintings, and comic book covers. He studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and worked for several years as a cover artist for DC Comics before branching out to pursue his own artistic vision. Jean’s work often features surreal and dreamlike imagery, blending elements of mythology, nature, and the human form into richly textured and complex compositions. His unique style has earned him numerous awards and accolades, and his artwork has been featured in galleries and museums around the world. Jean’s innovative approach to art continues to inspire and captivate audiences, making him one of the most celebrated and influential artists of his generation.

NOSE:
A mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a Johnnie Walker signature flavour) mixed with raisin sweetness.
PALATE:
The first sip reveals a velvety mouthfeel, then an explosion of flavour – hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.
FINISH:
A rich and uniquely long and satisfying finish of smoke and pepper, ending with a glorious touch of spice.
