Originally known as Walker's Kilmarnock Whisky, the Johnnie Walker brand is a legacy left by John "Johnnie" Walker after he started to sell whisky in his grocer's shop in Ayrshire, Scotland. The brand became popular, but after Walker's death in 1857 it was his son Alexander Walker and grandson Alexander Walker II who were largely responsible for establishing the Scotch as a popular brand. Under John Walker, whisky sales represented eight percent of the firm's income; by the time Alexander was ready to pass on the company to his own sons, that figure had increased to between 90 and 95 percent.
what is the difference between johnie walker blue label and johnie walker black label .thank you
I found a link that describes the differences:
Basically, blue label is the premium blend. It is handcrafted, more mature than black label, and uses exceptionally high quality, rare grains. There is also quite some difference in price for those reasons.
I ordered this 20 days before Christmas, and it arrived broken and empty a week before Christmas. Despite multiple complaints by phone and email for over a week, and despite me returning the bottle to them to prove that the seal had not been broken nor the cap opened, but rather the bottle itself was cracked, they have not yet sent a replacement. They say on their website that they take the headache out of shopping online, but I've had nothing BUT headaches over this for 8 days now. What does it take to get them to keep their promise that every shipment is insured?
I like a fast and shipping method from Wine Chateau. I'm happy with my purchase.
I never had tried this Scotch but have used Wine Chateau about a dozen times and every order was fulfilled promptly and always arrived quickly and in excellent condition.
Seems that ther r a lot of dissatisfied customers. Complaints of, broken "expense" bottles, broken labels, poor customer service, complaints not addressed, late delivery........I'm gonna check other sites. Thxs 4 the info.
i ordered my johnny walker blue label on march 18 and it arrived on march 19th. now mind you i live in ny, so i figured the delivery would be fast, but not this fast. no damage to the bottle or anything, came perfect. this was my first order and will NOT be my last!
I feel 100% confident recommending the Blue Label scotch to any lover of good bourbon and whiskey. Make a great gift as well.
First the website tell you the item will ship within 2 days after placing order. Thats Good. Then when you check the status 2 days after ordering, they then tell you the item is on backorder. Go back to the website, and it again tells you the item will ship within 2 days. How can you tell a customer the order will ship with in 2 days when they know its backordered? Even funnier, call to place on order for the product on the phone and rep tells you its in stock. Then you come back 4 days after ordering and read tins review. What a crock this company must be.
I'm ordered this one for more than 2 weeks.but i didn't get it. still waiting for shipping. ;(
saw an add where you can get the bottle engraved? anyone know about this?
Yes, you can get the bottles engraved but this program is only in the Wine Chateau local stores in New Jersey.
That's not true, if you're in the NYC area, you could get it done in Grand Central Station.
Sorry, I meant to say that if you get it through Wine Chateau, you can only get it through the local Wine Chateau stores. However, this program overall is available all over the United States. Sorry for the confusion :) Cheers!
Arrived in a timely manner but wish they had a ups option.. Bought it as a gift and it arrived with the seal broken on the box. But its hard to beat the price..
Splurged a bit with Blue Label, but well worth the price. Blue Label is smooth and hearty, without any bitter or carbon-type beginning or ending flavors. This scotch really sits well on your palette, and I particularly enjoy the flavor/scent of it after a sip and an exhale through the nose (I'm no connoisseur, but giving it a shot). Thanks.
This is the first time for Blue - I usually buy green or black - my friends bought me Blue for Christmas - It is incredibly smooth well worth the high price.
Best prices anywhere AND my order arrived in just a few days - right on time for a birthday gift! I will definitely order again from Wine Chateau.
Johnnie Walker's premium blend, Johnnie Walker Blue Label is specially blended to recreate the authentic character and taste of some of the earliest whisky blends created in the 19th century, giving it a rich, peaty taste combined with a smooth, distinctly malty flavor. Every bottle is serial numbered and sold in a silk-lined box, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. There is no age declaration for Blue Label. It is one of the most expensive blended Scotches on the market, fetching prices upwards of $225 a bottle. Notable Blue Label aficionados include the late president Richard Nixon, who mixed it with Dry Ginger Ale and a slice of lemon.
86 proof (43% ABV)
Enjoy on the rocks or neat. Some also like it with a drop of pure water.
