Johnnie Walker Gold Label is one of the world’s most iconic whiskies – a testament to almost two centuries of blending excellence. It was relaunched in 2012 and now comes to the U.S. Built around a core of single malt whisky from Clynelish, whose water source flows from the Kildonan Hills – where gold was discovered in 1868, the Gold Label Reserve is a great addition to the lineup from master blender Jim Beveridge. It is actually the replacement premium blend for Johnnie Walker’s popular Gold Label 18, and is based on the same Clynelish single malt as Gold Label 18-year-old, but it has a less peaty profile. The makers of Johnnie Walker suggest that the Gold Label Reserve is perfect for holiday celebrations.
“The Johnnie Walker journey continues as we introduce this striking offering to the U.S. for a limited time,” said Brian Radics, Director of Scotch Whisky, Diageo. “Gold Label Reserve provides consumers with a unique flavor for high energy celebrations that may not have been traditionally looked at as a Scotch whisky occasions.”
This luxurious, multi-layered whisky that offers a smooth balance of sweet fruits and creaminess with a light smoke comes in a striking and festive, reflective gold bottle, priced at $87!
