Diageo introduces the Limited Edition Johnnie Walker Blue Label Rat Pack, paying homage to the first animal in the Chinese zodiac as we enter the Year of the Rat in 2020.
The rarest of Scottish whiskies, the Blue Label has a combination of quality, character and flavour found in only one in every 10,000 casks. Characterised by a dry smokiness mixed with the sweetness of raisins, the first taste that greets the palate is a combination of vanilla, honey and rose petals before hints of zesty orange and notes of hazelnut, sherry and dark chocolate take over.
Also an ideal gift is the Limited Edition John Walker & Sons XR21 Phoenix Pack, which features the Chinese phoenix on the bottle as a symbol of luck, virtue and grace. Drawn from Johnnie Walker’s reserve whiskies, it has flavours of sweet, luscious fruits with toffee and hints of vanilla and golden honey notes that are blended together using a three-step process, creating a rich and warm finish.
