Johnnie Walker Blue Ox Bottling Note
Johnnie Walker releases limited edition bottlings of its Blue Label blended Scotch whisky in honour of the Chinese New Year, and this edition is for 2021's Year of the Ox! The bottle features an excellent design illustrated by artist Shirley Gong, and the whisky within is as brilliant as ever.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Fragrant with good body. Notes of oak, crisp spice, dried fruit, pastries. Berry fruits, aniseed, hints of cedar, a touch of spice and citrus.
Palate: Supple and balanced. Good toffee and hints of very wistful smoke. Chocolate, hints of grass and a good hit of malt.
Finish: Floral, oaky, good length, urged on by a plume of very well-kept, highland style smoke. Dried fruit, spice, honey.
Overall: One of the ultimate premium blends, Blue Label is a legend in its own right and will continue to be.
