Johnnie Walker / Blue Label
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Featured as a blend of Johnnie Walker's rarest whiskies, this Scotch billows with sweet cigar smoke from the very first sip. Underneath that, look for vanilla, oak and dry cocoa, finishing dry and spicy with cigar wrapper, allspice and clove, plus a mouthwatering saline note. - K.N..December/2014
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Tried & True Award)- Deep amber/chestnut brown color. Estery, astringent nose is full of red cherry, red plum, sweet oak, vanilla bean, parchment. Flavor profile is off-dry, nutty, toasty, sappy, cedary, mutlilayered, complex, mature. Aftertaste lingers a long time in the throat and is fruity, ripe, smoky. March/2015
Johnnie Walker Blue Label is an unrivaled masterpiece. It is an exquisite blend made from some of Scotland's rarest and most exceptional Scotch Whiskies. Only one in every ten thousand casks has the elusive quality, character and flavor to deliver the remarkable signature taste of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. An extraordinary Scotch Whisky for extraordinary occasions.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label is incomparably rich and smoky, with velvety smooth breaking waves of powerful flavor. Created from hand-selected casks of some of the rarest and most exceptional whiskies, there is no sensory experience quite like Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Hazelnuts, honey, sherry and oranges tumble in first, before releasing hidden secrets like ginger, kumquats, sandalwood and dark chocolate. A rich honey sweetness emerges, accompanied by hints of pepper and dried fruits, before an impossibly long, lingering, smooth finish of perfectly balanced, soft smoke.
