Blue Label Legendary Eight Blended Scotch Whisky
Johnnie Walker is celebrating its 200th Anniversary, and the perfect way to celebrate this landmark is with a dram of the limited-edition Blue Label Legendary Eight.
The twelve-strong team of whisky makers at Johnnie Walker have chosen components from eight “legendary” distilleries, including some long-closed ‘ghost’ distilleries and some rare liquid from absolute icons. Just like Johnnie Walker, all eight distilleries chosen are at least 200 years old. So, in the mix, you’ll discover Oban, Blair Athol, Lagavulin, Teaninich, Brora, Cambus, Port Dundas and Carsebridge. And if that doesn’t whet your appetite, then just wait until you taste it…
Bottled in blue glass, this highly collectable blended whisky is layered with caramelised brown sugar reminiscent of a crispy crème brûlée top; sweet stone fruits, such as peaches, apricots and greengages; stewed green apples, baked in a pie crust; freshly hewn wood; cocoa; smoked peppercorns and gentle peat. It’s the kind of mesmerising stuff that only 200 years of experience can create.
The Johnnie Walker story starts as you might expect with John Walker, who opened a grocer’s shop in Kilmarnock back in 1820. A lover of whisky, he began by blending together the single malts that he stocked. Although the brand that bears his name has the tagline “Keep Walking”, it has done much more than that. It has marched through history blazing a trail for Blended Scotch like no other. The name is now synonymous with whisky and attracts many who try to emulate it, but few come close.
