A special release of the iconic luxury Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the Casks edition is for those who seek new depths of flavour and a new way to enjoy blue label. Only one in ten thousand casks at the Johnnie Walker distillery have sufficient character for Blue Label, and in creating The Casks special edition, the incredible flavours that come from the casks themselves are showcased. Bottled at cask strength (55.8% AVB) the flavours drawn from these carefully selected casks have intensified to produce a robust and powerfully flavoured blended Scotch whisky with rich woody notes, deep smoke, traces of spice and a long lingering oak finish.
The nose offers butterscotch, tinned prunes, developing sherry and slightly earthy notes, along with oak and background smoke. Very full on the palate, with a silky-smooth mouth-feel; vanilla, ripe oranges, heather, honey, mocha, dates, walnuts, wood smoke.
