Johnnie Walker Blue Cask Edition
- Calculated at Checkout
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. 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, a long linger oak finish and bottled at 55.8% abv.
The colour is a deep coppery gold. On the nose vanilla, butterscotch, light brown sugar and deep citrus notes (making me think of candied oranges). There is plenty of oak too and a little smoke in the background. The overall impression is intense yet mellow.
All the aromas can be found on the palate, which displays the power and delivery of a cask strength whisky (55.8% ABV in this case). In addition to vanilla, butterscotch and orange citrus there is a biscuity flavour carrying with it a trace of something savoury, slightly earthy.
The oak spices and grains make a marked early impression, staying the course and carrying a fine grained quality. The texture of this whisky also makes it pleasant to hold in the mouth, as you feel the oak spices develop and bittersweet orange flavours combine on the finish.
