Make your Dad the envy of his mates with a Gift from Johnnie Walker®, the world’s number one blended Scotch Whisky. The Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Edition Crafted by Blender Chris Clark, part of the blend is matured in former Sherry casks, giving the whisky a richer fruitiness.
The expression also uses malts including Blair Athol, Cardhu and Strathmill resulting in a taste of complex fresh fruit with orchard character, sweet vanilla and gentle smoke.
Johnnie Walker Black Label is a true icon of Scotch, recognised as the benchmark for all other deluxe blends. Created using only whiskies aged for a minimum of 12 years from the four corners of Scotland, Johnnie Walker Black Label has an unmistakably smooth, deep, complex character.
Simon McGoram, National Whisky Ambassador for Diageo says, “Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Edition explores the fresh fruit and rich fruit character already found in the original Black Label. The blenders at Johnnie Walker have managed to dial up these attractive elements through the use of sherry cask maturation creating a deliciously rich and fruity expression of the world’s favourite Scotch whisky.
“Rather than just finishing a portion of the blend in sherry casks our expert blending team have increased the influence of famous malts like Cardhu, Strathmill and Blair Athol delivering a dram that offers an orchard fruit freshness, red fruits, figs and creamy vanilla. There’s just a subtle hint of Walker’s signature smoke on the finish. It’s an impressive whisky to share on any occasion.”
The limited-edition Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Edition (ABV 40%) is available now from all good liquor stores nationally, RRP $60 for a 700ml bottle.
