When you consider the praise that each of the whiskies in this box have garnered, it has to be one of the top Scotch gifts on the market today. Johnnie Walker Discover Gift Pack contains one 50ml taster bottle of each of the following:
Black Label: “An unmistakable classic and an exemplar of a blended Scotch whisky, famous around the world.” – Whisky Advocate
Double Black: Gold Medal at The Scotch Whisky Masters 2018
Gold Label Reserve: World’s Best Blended Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards 2018
18 Year Old: Gold Medal at The Scotch Whisky Masters 2018
Blue Label: 97 points, “Magnificently powerful and intense… Close to perfection.” – Whisky Advocate
As Whisky Advocate says, Black Label is a world famous classic. The Double Black ups the smoke and the char on the casks to dramatic effect. Gold Label Reserve tastes as if it’s laced with honey and vanilla. The 18 Year Old is elegantly mature and reminiscent of toasting crumpets on an open fire. And finally – the pièce de résistance – Blue Label; it’s impossible to disagree with Whisky Advocate that this is close to perfection. Explore Johnnie Walker’s iconic back catalogue in style with this brand-new Gift Pack.
The Johnnie Walker story starts as you might expect with John Walker, who opened a grocer’s shop in Kilmarnock. A lover of whisky, he began by blending together the single malts that he stocked. Although the brand that bears his name has the tagline “Keep Walking”, it has done much more than that. It has marched through history blazing a trail for Blended Scotch like no other. The name is now synonymous with whisky and attracts many who try to emulate it, but few come close.
