Johnnie Walker Blue Label The Casks Edition + gift pack. Мощный (55,8% крепость) лимитированный шотландский виски, который по праву считается пиком искусства мастер-блендера компании Джима Бевериджа: в купаж входят редкие отборные виски со складов Diageo. Букет смелый богатый и пряный, прекрасно звучат ноты имбиря и фруктового пирога с ванильным кремом, легко и приятно ощущаются нотки дыма и пряного яблока. Вкус в неразбавленном виде пламенный и неукротимый, великолепно слышны специи и пикантные ноты трубочного табака, во второй волне улавливаются соблазнительные оттенки лакрицы и древесные нюансы. Послевкусие продолжительное с восхитительными нотами дуба.

The Casks Edition is a duty free only release, hitting airports across Asia, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Australia. Bottled at 55.8% the blend is another Jim Beveridge special, which aims to highlight a more powerful, robust nuances in whisky making that individual casks can bring to the party. Released in small batches (although we don't know of what size) the price is not that far off the price of the regular Blue Label, ($300 for a litre bottle) so for those Blue Label fans with that hung-ho holiday spirit passing through a major airport, this looks like an attractive bottle to take to one's poolside retreat.

So what is it like? Where does it sit next to the new releases and indeed- the regular edition of Blue Label??

Not the official bottle shot

Johnnie Walker Blue Label - The Casks Edition - 55.8%

Nose: Ooh. Big, bold and quite mossy on the first nosing. Very spicy, with notes of garam masala, peppers, dried ginger, a hint of smoke (less than I expected), then moist fruit cake, with a vanilla cream butter icing. Given some long lingering wafts, notes of spiced apple come to the fore, alongside sponge fingers dipped in Oloroso sherry. With water, white pepper and some toffee apple notes develop, alongside a weighty dry sherry. As a JW, this is certainly a big meaty fellow, like the striding man has been in training for a forthcoming athletic spectacle perhaps?

Palate: Undiluted, the palate is fiery and untamed at first, as one would expect with a cask strength whisky, but soon the heat dies away to reveal a gingery, spicy side, steeped in touches of classic JW golden syrup, sponge cake, cinnamon apple strudel and a touch of vanilla pipe tobacco. With water, the stewed apple, golden syrup and spice (liquorice this time) develop. As July days go, it's a bit nippy around the drinking halls of Caskstrength towers and this is working through from within to revivify me.

Finish: Lingering dry spice notes, with just the faintest smoke and sweetness in cake form.

Overall: For fans of JW in general it won't come as a surprise that this whisky is exquisitely put together. Less smoke than the Gold and Black Labels, with a heavier slant towards sherry casks, whatever Mr Beveridge has to play with in his blending rooms is clearly superb and this JW edition just highlights why his understanding of the striding man is becoming almost like a 6th sense.

Johnnie Walker Red Label Johnnie Walker Red Label. Прекрасный купажированный шотландский скотч с оригинальной красной этикеткой. Соединил в себе светлый виски с восточного побережья и темный, торфяной с западного, всего более 30 сортов виски с разными сроками выдержки, поэтому напиток получился элегантный с глубоким характером. Букет яркий и свежий, наполненный нежными оттенками ванили и солода, с легкими нюансами дыма. Вкус пряный интенсивный, шелковистый и обволакивающий, насыщенный сладостью, однако в конце ненавязчиво слышна пикантная терпкость. Послевкусие продолжительное с благородными дымными оттенками.

JOHNNIE WALKER RED LABEL is the world’s best-selling Scotch Whisky. It’s renowned for its bold, characterful taste – balanced to shine through even when mixed. It’s a flavour the Walker family has never compromised on.
The Walker family used their encyclopaedic knowledge of Scotland’s malts to create a blend with universal appeal. The result? RED LABEL became the world’s favourite whisky, a position it still holds today. Developed for an export market with a taste for long, refreshing drinks, it’s the label that built the Walker empire, and the brand that defined the whisky business.

Blending is part art, part science – it’s a skill the Walker family developed over many generations. RED LABEL with its combination of light whiskies from Scotland’s east coast and dark, peaty whiskies from the west coast, created a blend with an extraordinary depth of flavour. The taste travels right across your palate to deliver a flavour experience no ordinary whisky can match.
The character of the whisky is defined by intense, spicy, zingy, edgy flavours. RED LABEL bursts onto the palate with the freshness of spray from a crashing wave, followed by the zing of aromatic spices and finally a long, lingering, smoky finish. The sensation in the mouth is complex – ‘sweet chilli’ is a good description of this taste and the tingling sensation on the tongue.
Whisky expert Dave Broom says of RED LABEL, “This is outdoors, this is setting off on your bike along the coast with the wind blowing in your face, the surf is up, the wind is whipping the grass, there is salt in the air, spring is turning to summer.” RED LABEL combines distinctiveness, passion and character with style and personality.

The story of RED LABEL started with the pioneering vision of the Walker family. John Walker and his sons saw an opportunity to take their whisky far beyond the borders of Scotland. They strove to make RED LABEL the world’s favourite whisky and didn’t give up until they achieved that goal, becoming one of the world’s first truly global brands.
Alexander Walker created the distinctive square bottle in 1860, with a label angled at precisely 24°. In a world that predominately uses rounded bottles, it soon became the most recognised whisky globally – it’s an iconic design for an iconic whisky.
The intrepid merchants and engineers who set sail from Scotland over 100 years ago taking RED LABEL with them are responsible for its rapid growth in popularity worldwide. As the Walker family once said, “We sailed wherever ship could sail”, a pioneering spirit that continues today.

RED LABEL is enjoyed in a variety of ways worldwide – neat, on the rocks or combined with your favourite mixer.
