Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin series unveiled
Four new limited bottlings, blended from whisky from four Scottish regions
"Inspired by the four corners of Scotland" tells the current press release of Diageo presenting the new special editions of its famous label Johnny Walker. The aim is to focus on different aromatic characters and present individual profiles of the Lowlands, Speyside, Highlands and Islay.
Three of these limited editions are blended malts, all married only from single malts, one is a blended Scotch whisky made from single malts and grain whiskey. All four whiskies are 12 years old and bottled at 42% ABV in 1 liter bottles.
The launch of Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin’s first bottlings is announced for July for the travel retail worldwide. You probably won’t find those Johnnie Walker whiskies in normal retail stores.
