JOHNNIE WALKER WHISKY Blue Label Year of the Dragon 2024 Limited Edition Blended Scotch Whisky
Johnnie Walker has released this limited-edition Blue Label bottle to celebrate the 2024 Lunar New Year. This highly anticipated Year of the Dragon bottling has been designed in collaboration with James Jean, an international artist who has exhibited all over the world, known for hyper stylised paintings and multi-layered compositions using abstract figures and displays of colour. It captures the essence of the mighty zodiac Wood Dragon arising from the depths of an ancient forest, to stand as a powerful emblem of life, creativity and auspicious ambition. The striking and imaginative illustration bursts forth exquisitely within the limited-edition design of the Johnnie Walker packaging alongside the iconic Striding Man logo.
This enticing expression delivers a balanced and mellow nose with smokiness and sweet raisin notes evolving to show pronounced aromas of layered dried fruit, citrus smoke, honey, sweet spice and vanilla leading to a long-rounded finish with delicate smoke and velvety chocolate.
Johnnie Walker’s Blue Label is nothing short of legendary. Inspired by Alexander Walker’s 1867 Old Highland Whisky, 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.
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.
