Here is a new Scotch you don’t want to miss – Johnnie Walker Platinum Label. Inspired by a Walker family custom to craft exclusive Scotch whisky blends for private gatherings that were never sold, Platinum Label is the most perfectly crafted 18-year-old blended Scotch whisky John Walker & Sons has ever made. This intense, smooth and subtly smoky blend is made from a mix of malt whiskies and grain whiskies from different distilleries (only 20 to 25), aged a minimum of 18 years, drawn from a limited number of casks, and blended by Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge.
He said: “Since the days of John Walker, private blends have played an important role in the House of Walker. It’s the smaller, exclusive settings and experiences that often produce the best memories. We blended Johnnie Walker Platinum Label as a whisky to be enjoyed responsibly during those treasured moments.” The recommended serve for Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is neat or with a few drops of distilled water.
“Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is the brand’s biggest product launch since the introduction of Blue Label,” said Brian Radics, Director of Scotch Whisky, Diageo. “It has been received extremely well globally. The quality of the liquid and the flavor of the whisky will continue to bolster our position as the world’s leading Scotch whisky brand.” Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $110.
