JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ Limited Edition Collection Designed By Alfred Dunhill
Tuesday 11 March, 2014
JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ - the height of our blending expertise from the world's foremost whisky artisans - is blended from rare casks of whiskies from the four corners of Scotland. Only sublime, rare whiskies are used in the blending of JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™, with only 1 in 10,000 casks containing whisky of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste.
JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ is a Scotch Whisky born of the art of our Master Blender.
Inspired by the pioneering spirit of JOHNNIE WALKER®, together with Alfred Dunhill's love for travel, two purveyors of British luxury have come together to celebrate shared journeys and achievements.
The Limited Edition Johnnie Walker® Blue Label™ Giftpack features a limited edition bottle with its interior evoking the contours of a map, bringing the two iconic brands' shared journey to life. The bottle's exterior seamlessly marries the JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ signature blue colour packaging with Dunhill's signature 'Chassis' design and gunmetal finish made famous in their leather goods.
RRP £182.00 (70cl) from stockists including www.harrods.com, www.selfridges.com, www.harveynichols.com

NOTES TO EDITORS
About JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™
JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL is one of the pinnacle offerings from JOHNNIE WALKER.
Only sublime, rare whiskies at the pinnacle of perfection are used in the blending of JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL, with only 1 in 10,000 casks containing whisky of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste. Each is hand selected by the JOHNNIE WALKER Master Blender himself, part of an unbroken lineage of Master Blenders stretching back over 190 years - it is the ultimate expression of whisky making today and an remarkable achievement for the modern era.
Presented in individually numbered bottles, it is reminiscent of the 19th century style of whiskies. The Master Blender uses his decades of experience to select some of the rarest casks from the JOHNNIE WALKER reserves for their quality, character and flavour to create the powerful, complex, smooth character of BLUE LABEL.
BLUE LABEL has a mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a JOHNNIE WALKER signature flavour) mixing with raisin sweetness. It is best savoured with the palate cleansed and cooled by iced water. One sip reveals a velvety mouth-feel, then an explosion of flavour. At once you'll discover hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.
