Johnnie Walker Blue Pig Bottling Note
A limited edition bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. This edition is ornately decorated by English illustrator Chrissy Lau to celebrate 2019’s Chinese New Year, the Year of the Pig. The pig is a sign of good fortune, though if you’ve got your hands on this whisky then it looks like you’re lucky enough already!
Nose: Fragrant with good body. Notes of oak, crisp spice, dried fruit, pastries. Berry fruits, aniseed, hints of cedar, a touch of spice and citrus.
Palate: Supple and balanced. Good toffee and hints of very wistful smoke. Chocolate, hints of grass and a good hit of malt.
Finish: Floral, oaky, good length, urged on by a plume of very well-kept, highland style smoke. Dried fruit, spice, honey.
Overall: One of the ultimate premium blends, Blue Label is a legend in its own right and will continue to be.
