Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the pinnacle whisky of the House of Walker – it’s the epitome of blending. Created to reflect the style of whiskies in the early 19th century, it’s created using some of our rarest casks from the Johnnie Walker stocks, the largest in the world.
The casks are hand-selected and set aside for their exceptional quality, character and flavour. The character of Blue Label is truly unique; it’s complex, powerful, incredibly smooth and retains the Johnnie Walker signature smokiness.
It sets the standard, with layers and layers of flavour from hand-selected, rare casks from across the distilling regions of Scotland. Its flavours are influenced by the smoke of the west and the rich, sweet whiskies of the east.
The John Walker edition takes the learning and knowledge behind the idea of hand selection, and the rarity and elegance of small stocks from some closed distilleries. The layers of taste evolve and resonate with an elegant smoky finish.
It was created by the Master Distiller, Jim Beveridge, who continues the tradition of unparalleled commitment to creating the world’s greatest whiskies. With access to the most valuable and precious whisky stocks he creates this rare blend, using only the most exceptional of young and old whiskies.
The Johnnie Walker Master Blender draws from the largest reserves of whisky in the world; a heritage that can be traced back almost 200 years. From the largest selection of casks in the world, the whiskies used for Johnnie Walker Blue Label are literally hand selected and nurtured.
No other whisky house comes close to the spectrum of flavour that forms the basis of the extraordinary character of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
The signature serve represents the best way to fully appreciate the extraordinary taste of Blue Label. It’s a slow, intense, rich, deep and multi-layered experience. Start by serving neat in a tumbler, nosing the whisky carefully.
The powerful aromas from the west coast are balanced with hints of sweetness and depth. Take a sip of iced water before your first sip of whisky to make sure the palate is refreshed. Your first taste will reveal an explosion of flavour on the tongue, which then resonates throughout your palate.
The layers of flavour develop and unfold and the finish continues with more and more flavours developing. Then there’s a rich and uniquely long and satisfying finish of smoke, pepper, ending with a glorious touch of spice.
