JW Blue Legendary Eight Bottling Note
A rather special release from Johnnie Walker, part of the brand's 200th anniversary celebrations! Legendary Eight is a variation on the incredible Blue Label blended Scotch whisky, featuring whiskies from eight distilleries which were around when Johnnie Walker's journey began two centuries ago. This includes Blair Athol, Brora, Cambus, Carsebridge, Lagavulin, Oban, Port Dundas, and Teaninich – you'll note that four of these distilleries have sadly been closed over the years, but they all remain legendary.
Tasting Note by The Producer
Nose: The blend is rich with layers of brown sugars, soft fruit and sweet wood. These flavours evolve to reveal hints of green apple and a subtle zest; complementing the gentle peat unfolding in the background to give an overarching warming sensation.
Palate: A wonderful sweetness envelops the taste buds, through which notes of stone fruits, stewing apples and cocoa emerge.
Finish: A wisp of smoke comes through to deepen the flavour resulting in a soft and lightly peppered finish.
