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.
Serve chilled and your guests will be blown away. I know mine were.
hi, what would this 1.75l be in us?
Worth every penny as you drink different and increasingly better scotches longer. This is an incredibly distinguished blend. Don't let the blended factor scare you off as if single malts are the one and only high end whiskey. So far I find the Walker blends better than the age comparable single malts 15 and up.
the sensual blend. few whiskeys offer as indulgent an experience as johnnie walker gold label. exceptionally smooth, creamy and delicate, gold label is the ultimate whiskey pleasure. a skillful fusion of rare aged whiskeys inspired by the notes originally kept by sir alexander walker, and crafted from only a small number of scotland's most renowned distilleries each matured for a minimum of 18 years.
according to wine enthusiast - this amber blend of 15 whiskeys, each aged at least 18 years, yields a mellow, balanced mix of sweet caramel, raisin and smoky notes, all lingering and pleasing. serve chilled, possibly as a dessert pairing. rated 90+
