Review: Johnnie Walker Blue Label

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 6, 2022

It’s been quite a while since my last review was published, but today I thought I would begin to catch up on the large queue of reviews that have been pending. Today’s review completes a series of Johnny Walker tastings which began in late 2020 (yeah, more than 16 months ago) which were side-swiped by the World-wide crisis relating to the virus. In fact it has been over a year since the last published review in the series, Johnnie Walker Aged 18 Years.

This is the review for Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch Whisky

It is interesting to note that Johnnie Walker does not make an age claim for the whisky although it is generally believed that the Blue Label represents an older overall blend than the Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old. Neither does Johnnie Walker give any indication as to which distilleries the whisky have contributed to the overall blend. It is hinted that the existing distilleries of Royal Lochnagar, Clynelish, Glenkinchie, Glenlossie and Cameronbridge all contribute to the character of Johnnie Walker Blue.

Here is a link to my full review with tasting notes and scores:

Review: Johnnie Walker Blue Label 

“… Rich toffee melded with leathery oak and pencil shavings, vanilla, a little swampy peat and charcoal smoke. We also encounter raisins and dates sweetened with a touch of honey and soft stone fruit (peaches and pears). The peat seems to build up and then fade just a little revealing hints of chocolate and coffee …”

Please enjoy my review, and you can look forward to more Rum and Whisky reviews in the coming weeks, perhaps more vodka and gin as well.
