Johnnie Walker Blue Label is a blended Scotch whisky unrivalled by the other distilleries. It is the exquisite combination of Scotland’s rarest and most exceptional whiskies. Only one in every ten thousand casks has the elusive quality, character and flavour to deliver the remarkable signature taste. Masterfully blended by Alexander Walker, son of John Walker in the year 1867. It was an era when fewer casks were available and quality casks selections were in its infancy.
Nothing much is known of the blend to create Johnnie Walker Blue Label except speculations that the distillery Royal Lochnagar which produces unpeated, slightly creamy, and floral single malt Scotch, is used in the blend. The rarity of this whisky is marked with bottling numbers on the label. It is bottled at the standard 40% ABV.
“Where Johnnie Walker Black is more like Daniel Craig as James Bond, Blue Label is more Pierce Brosnan; less brute force with a touch more elegance. Take a sip and find dates and floral notes with a touch of spice. But make no mistake, the smoldering peat does eventually sneak up on you…perhaps like an MI6 agent might.”
