Johnnie Walker brings back Green Label

02 March, 2016

Diageo is reintroducing Green Label to its Johnnie Walker blended Scotch range.

The whisky is blended from Speyside, Highland, Lowland and Island malts that have been matured for at least 15 years.

It includes Talisker from Skye, Linkwood and Cragganmore from from Speyside, and Caol Ila from Islay.

Master blender Jim Beveridge said: “The challenge of Johnnie Walker Green Label is to have a wide flavour spectrum from malts matured for 15 years in American and European oak, ensuring that those flavours really complement each other and work in harmony to create a blend of great complexity which, at its heart, is true to the Johnnie Walker style of big and bold flavours with a signature smokiness.”

Green Label sits between Black Label and Gold Label Reserve in the Johnnie Walker range with an rrp of £40.39.

Master of Malt and Royal Mile Whisky are among the stockists.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
