Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky is a commemoration of the blending skills of John Walker, carefully honed through marrying teas and spices from the New World. He passed these skills on to his son, Alexander, who harnessed whisky flavours from across Scotland in his 1867 Old Highland Whisky. Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky is the summit of achievement of the Johnnie Walker Blended Scotch Whisky Labels: each label is individually numbered.
Only one in 10,000 casks drawn from the four corners of Scotland are suitable for the Johnnie Walker Blue Label blend. The casks used are hand-selected and reserved for their exceptional quality: only these rare, elite casks contain whisky of sufficient character to deliver the remarkably smooth signature taste. Master Blender Jim Beveridge marries small batches from the unparalleled Johnnie Walker reserves to create this most intense and complex of whiskies.
How to enjoy
Johnnie Walker Blue Label is best served neat. First cool the palate with iced water and then pour 50ml of Johnnie Walker Blue Label into a tumbler at room temperature. Slowly savour the mellow, rounded nose with the signature Johnnie Walker dry smokiness. Then take a first sip to reveal a velvety mouthfeel. The next sip unfurls an explosion of hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges, followed by layers of kumquats, sandalwood and dark chocolate. Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky is the ultimate connoisseur's whisky. For more great Johnnie Walker whiskies in the range, visit here.
