Johnnie Walker Blue is an exceptional treasure. This charming blend is made from some of Scotland’s rarest and most phenomenal Scotch Whiskies. It is rich and smoky like no other, with lusciously smooth crumbling waves of dynamic flavor. The first rushing flavors on the palate are hazelnuts, honey, sheer, and tumble, before delivering mysterious secrets like dark chocolate, ginger, kumquats, and sandalwood. A rich honey confection emanates, followed by hints of dried fruits and pepper, before an impossibly lengthy, lingering, smooth finish of thoroughly balanced, soft smoke. Maker's Mark Cask Strength is another great choice for a smooth and pleasant whisky.
The history behind Johnnie Walker Blue Label interestingly enough dates back to 1990, when Johnnie Walker, a company that is obsessed with consistency with their products, reached into some of their reserve casks and created a blend out of multiple whiskies. It is rumored that some of the rarest whiskies that can be 60 years old are mixed with other newer blends to create the signature and sought-after smooth and light taste.
Due to the rarity of the ingredients, the nearly guaranteed consistency and the unique scent (Hazelnut, honey, sherry and oranges) and flavor notes (ginger, sandalwood, dark chocolate, dried fruit and pepper), Johnnie Walker Blue Label is one of the most popular whiskies available today, likely to please just about anyone.Watch "Joy Will Take you Further" by Johnnie Walker:
