Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Rooster Limited Edition description

This limited edition of Johnnie Walker's iconic Blue Label celebrates Chinese New Year and 2017 being the Year of the Rooster. Presented in a striking bottle with a two-tone blue that fades to allow a glimpse of the golden liquid within. A gold illustration of the eponymous rooster adorns each face of the classically square bottle. Only 600 bottles of this limited edition blended Scotch whisky are available in the UK.Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the pinnacle of Blended Scotch Whisky making from Johnnie Walker. Only 1 out 10,000 casks is deemed to be of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste, and these casks are drawn from the largest reserves of whisky in the world. Blue Label is a big flavoured whisky that reflects the Walker belief that neither whisky age alone, nor whisky from a single location, is enough to achieve the creation of a masterpiece.Layers of big flavour, deep richness and smoke, layers of honey and fruit and an incredibly smooth finish deliver this truly rare character.

Knowledge Bar

John "Johnnie" Walker was born in 1805 near Kilmarnock and ran a grocery, wine and spirits shop on the High Street in Kilmarnock from where he started to sell his own whisky brand, then known asWalker’s Kilmarnock Whisky.

John’s son, Alexander, had learned the art of tea blending whilst working for a tea merchant in Glasgow and, when he returned to take over the family business from his ailing father, he used those skills to create the family's first blend in 1865,Old Highland Whisky, which eventually becameJohnnie Walker Black Label.

A few years later, in 1870, Alexander introduced the now iconic square bottle as it allowed more bottles to be packed in a case and reduced breakages.
