A trio of Johnnie Walker for Christmas and all year long!
Giving whisky as a gift in the festive season is a safe bet, especially if it is a Johnnie Walker. A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the Johnnie Walker Black Label Triple Cask Edition and this time we will review a combination of 3 different editions of Johnnie Walker from the 200 years limited edition design. Put them in a hamper add a whiskey-filled chocolate and you have a perfect gift for any whisky lover!
About the 200 years limited edition design (Johnnie Walker)
To celebrate 200 years since John Walker started our journey, we’re letting our icons off the leash with a fashion-inspired, limited edition design, creating bold new bottle and pack designs for our most iconic whiskies – Johnnie Walker Black Label, Red Label and Gold Label Reserve. The timeless whiskies inside the bottles remain unchanged. The cutting-edge designs are available for a limited time only. An impressive gift for someone who appreciates good whisky or is seeking to try something new. If you’re looking for quality gift ideas, your search is over.
Johnnie Walker Black Label Triple Cask Edition is a limited-edition whisky inspired by the lighter flavours and aromas found in the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label. This new whisky offers travellers a new and exceptional flavour experience.
The development of this rich, sweet and spicy Scotch has been led by Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Jim Beveridge, and expert blender, Chris Clark. This new expression has been crafted using a blend of malt and grain whiskies from distilleries such as Cardhu and Cameronbridge and has been finished in casks previously used to mature American bourbon, then Scotch whisky, and finally Caribbean pot still rum.
Johnnie Walker Black Label is sweetness wrapped in smoke. The gentle embrace of sweet fruit and creamy toffee with a crackling smoky finish. Add a dash of water or tonic to open up the flavours and enjoy with ice or without as you prefer. A splash of ginger beer adds a warming element. The smoky sweetness also lends itself to forming an ideal basis for newer cocktails like Johnnie & Peach or Johnnie & Elderflower.
Johnnie Walker Red Label is a fiery dance of subtle spice and fruitiness. Sweet smoke crackles with sparks of cinnamon, honey cascades over fresh fruit while pepper bursts through crisp apple. It’s ideally served with ice or with a splash of tonic or with lemonade and an orange wedge to perfectly compliment the fiery side to Johnnie Walker Red Label. Learn how to build your own Johnnie Walker Red Label & Lemon.
Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve is like honey wrapped in velvet where sweet cream is lightly kissed by vanilla spice. Add a dash of water or tonic to open up the flavours and enjoy with ice or without as you prefer. A splash of apple juice adds a lift of orchard freshness. The mellow sweetness also lends itself to forming an ideal basis for classic cocktails like an Old Fashioned or Whisky Sour.
