"Johnnie Walker Blue Label sets the standard, with layers and layers of flavor from hand-selected, rare casks from across the distilling regions of Scotland. Its flavors are influenced by the smoke of the west and the rich, sweet whiskies of the east. The smoke is supplied from the unique, closed distillery of port ellen and is powerful, slow and resonant. It's a slower whisky to evolve but has enormous depth. The john walker edition takes the learning and knowledge behind the idea of hand selection, and the rarity and elegance of small stocks from some closed distilleries. The layers of taste evolve and resonate with an elegant smoky finish."
