John Walker’s grandsons patented the name Johnnie Walker in 1908 and launched a White Label, Special Red Label and Extra Special Black label whisky. The white was dropped, but the red and black in their recognisable square bottles with the ‘striding dandy’ logo became internationally successful.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 15/11/2017
Clear, golden amber.
Nubuck leather, lightly toasted brown bread, honeycomb, spicy cinnamon oak, delicate peat, ripe pear and chocolate brownie.
Slightly salty sweet and silky. New leather, creamy barley, toffee apple, milk chocolate, light cinnamon and nutmeg spice with wisps of smoky peat.
Lightly smoked leathery chocolate sponge with cinnamon spice and lingering saltiness.
Malty with creamy barley, toffee apple, milk chocolate and light saltiness. A great whisky which sits in the shadows of its Black sibling.
