97 points, “Magnificently powerful and intense… Close to perfection.” – Whisky Advocate
Johnnie Walker’s Blue Label is nothing short of legendary, and now it’s available in this limited-edition 200th Anniversary Edition. Blue Label is inspired by Alexander Walker’s 1867 Old Highland Whisky, and it has become one of the most iconic spirits in the world. Renowned for its balance, smoothness and expert blending, it’s crafted using some of the rarest casks from Speyside and Highland distilleries such as Cardhu, Clynelish, Benrinnes and others that are no longer in service, plus a splash or two from Islay for that signature bonfire smoke.
Pouring a generous measure into one of these elegant tumblers, we discovered cigar smoke, rose-scented baklava, vanilla pods, runny honey, pencil shavings, apple pie, praline, marmalade, milk chocolate caramels, banoffee, dry Christmas spices and a raisiny quality reminiscent of Madeira. It’s impossible to disagree with Whisky Advocate’s assessment, it really is close to perfection.
The Johnnie Walker story starts as you might expect with John Walker, who opened a grocer’s shop in Kilmarnock. 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.
