Blended Scotch Whisky
70cl / 43.8%
This new limited edition release of Johnnie Walker Blue Label is lovingly crafted by Johnnie Walker's team of 12 whisky makers.
It is crafted using Scotch from the Eight legendary distilleries of Oban, Blair Athol, Lagavulin, Teaninich, Brora, Cambus, Port Dundas and Carsebridge - the later four being known as the ghost distilleries as they are sadly no more.
This is a whisky that celebrates 200 years of whisky-making craftmanship and is presented in a snazzy side opening box.
Nose: The blend is rich with layers of brown sugars, soft fruit and sweet wood. These flavours evolve to reveal hints of green apple and a subtle zest; complementing the
gentle peat unfolding in the background to give an overarching warming sensation.
Palate: A wonderful sweetness envelops the taste buds, through which notes of stone fruits, stewing apples and cocoa emerge.
Finish: A wisp of smoke comes through to deepen the flavour resulting in a soft and lightly peppered finish.
It’s fascinating to reflect on the idea that these famous distilleries also walked a 200-year journey and their whiskies still inspire us today. This new limited edition celebrates that shared experience and the contribution these rare whiskies continue to make to Johnnie Walker today and into tomorrow.
