Blue Label is Johnnie Walker's rare blend, not a Whisky for beginners, it's challenging and an acquired taste. Assembled from the rarest and most expensive Whiskies in the world, Blue Label has the authentic character and flavour of a traditional 19th century blend, just like those that John Walker and his son Alexander formulated for their high value customers. Blue Label is blended from a number of exceptional Whiskies with powerful flavours. Each bottle is precious to the Johnnie Whisky makers and is individually numbered.
Each individual bottle of Blue Label Johnnie Walker contains a rare taste and gives an intense experience. Blue Label is the ultimate luxury Scotch Whisky and supplies are limited by the rarity and expense of the Whiskies used in the blend. At the heart of Blue Label is Royal Lochnagar a rare Malt distilled very near the Queen's holiday home at Balmoral. Around 15 other mature and precious Whiskies are added to balance Blue Label perfectly. Sometimes, due to a combination of natural factors beyond the Master Blender's control, Johnnie Walker will produce a unique batch of an amazingly different Blue Label. These occurrences are very rare, are unpredictable and uncontrollable.
