Initially launched in Taiwan, Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Finish, is said to offer flavours from across the four corners of Scotland, with sweet fruit and spice from distilleries like Clynelish in the Highlands and Cardhu on Speyside, alongside creamy toffee, honey-like sweetness and vanilla from Lowland distilleries like Cameronbridge and Glenkinckie, all wrapped in a cloak of smoke from Caol Ila on the Islands.
Commenting on the whisky, Emma Walker, Johnnie Walker Master Blender, said: “This is a whisky inspired by the bold and dynamic layers of flavour that Johnnie Walker Black Label is famed for. We have taken that unmistakable character and exceptional depth of flavour of Black Label and fired it with the mellow sweet smoothness of a sherry finish so that the flavours dance with citrus; it is a taste collision of smooth and sherry – and one that I’m extremely proud to add to the collection.”
Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Finish, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £33.99.
