The story of Johnnie Walker begins in the 1800s with John Walker, a farmer with strong business acumen. After his father’s death, he decided to reinvent himself and started blending whisky, creating more balanced and consistent products than single malt whiskey production. His success continued with his son Alexander Walker, who created the famous 20° crooked label and square bottle and began distributing his first blend, Old Highland Whisky, worldwide. The next generation led to the creation of the Red Label and the Black Label, as well as the company logo with the “Striding Man” and the figure of Johnnie Walker. Today, Johnnie Walker is one of the largest blended whiskey companies in the world, with Scotland’s finest whiskeys recognized around the world.
Blended Whiskeys are whiskeys obtained by blending other whiskies, whether they are Single Malt or Grain Whiskeys. Johnnie Walker was among the first to use this production method, to try to obtain more balanced products with greater qualitative consistency. The figure of the Master Blender is fundamental, who skilfully selects the various “bases” in order to create highly prestigious blends. This blend is created with Cardhu and Clynelish.
Intense and brilliant amber color. The scent is complex and intoxicating and has notes of spices, dried fruit, berries and citrus fruits, with a hint of cedar wood and aniseed, black pepper and cinnamon. On the palate, the taste is soft and pleasantly smoky, with notes of hay and dried flowers, and ends with an aftertaste that recalls honey and chocolate.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation; particularly recommended for lovers of whiskey or smoky or intense flavors in general. Highly recommended for collectors!
