| Johnnie Walker Gold Label Scotch Whisky18yrs 750ml |
Few whiskies offer as indulgent an experience as Johnnie Walker Gold Label. Exceptionally smooth, creamy and delicate, Gold Label is the ultimate whisky pleasure.
A skilful fusion of rare aged whiskies inspired by the notes originally kept by Sir Alexander Walker, and crafted from only a small number of Scotland's most renowned distilleries each matured for a minimum of 18 years.
The golden whisky, a truly inspired blend that has at its heart the rare Clynelish malt, distilled from spring water which runs through veins of pure gold, to create a magical taste, rich soft and lingering. One sip reveals honey tones balanced with almonds and spices, leading to a distinctive creaminess and the most delightful smooth finish.
The true hedonists of the world freeze their Gold Label for 24 hours to release its light fruity flavours and true honey sweetness, as the whisky warms in the mouth. Other whiskies either lack these distinctive light characters or have flavours that can be overpowering when suddenly released, for example strong woody or smoky characters. Gold Label is perfect when served frozen, in a frozen glass and perhaps even served with a bitter chocolate dessert for a truly indulgent experience.
To drink is to savour the richer pleasure of a truly golden whisky.
The heritage of Johnnie Walker whiskies dates to 1820 when John Walker opened a small shop in Kilmarnock in Scotland and began selling Scotch Whiskey. John Walker made a name for himself by mastering the art of blending single malt whiskies from distilleries all across Scotland to create a very high quality whiskey, much better than each of the single malt whiskey. Much like wine, Scotch whisky is identified by the region in which it is made. There are four regions in all: Highland, Lowland, Islay and Campbeltown. These last two were sometimes combined and some simply refer to Eastern and Western Malts. In more recent times, the Highland Region has been sub-divided into northern, eastern, Island, and a further sub-division, Speyside, has become a region onto itself.
