JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL BLENDED SCOTCH WHISKY (750 ML)
- Product Review (submitted on December 25, 2016):
- I'm a nomad in the word of whisky's, as in, I'll try an alternative brand each and every time I buy. I'll purchase all different price ranges from cheap to expensive and I've come across some damn nice whisky's and some not so nice. The whole point of my previous statement is that only one of these whisky's I'll buy time and time again and it's 'Johnnie Walker Blue Label' it's so damn nice from the start to finish. The advert has it to a tee! Palate: A silky caress. Unexpectedly strong spicy entry, but always honeyed and rounded by some toasty oak. The honeyed malt is beautifully interwoven around the venerable grain, which must be absolutely ancient. Finish: A perfectly-integrated slow fade of the palate. Mouthwatering grain, and the honey and spices dwindle slowly. Extremely long but still very gentle. Comment: The daddy of premium blends divides fans as to whether or not it merits its price tag, but there is definitely something esoteric about the basically flawless balance on display here. Smoother than a hot-buttered, freshly-shaven diplomat in velvet trousers.
