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 easily recognisable square bottles with the ‘striding dandy’ became internationally successful blends.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/04/2012
Clear, dark golden with bright light golden highlights.
Voluptuous buttered honeycomb with malty cereal, plump dried fruit, just backed crispy bread, rose petal aromas and delicate wafts of salty smoke and peat.
Silky, fruity palate smoothed by rich buttery honey and vanilla, enlivened by a touch of spicy oak, dry nuts and a hint of smoky salty peat.
Gentle honeyed, waxy, vanilla finish.
