Johnnie Walker Blue Label Blended Scotch Whisky is blended from select single malt scotch whiskies. The uniqueness of the whisky is based on the mystery of the scotch whiskies used to create it. Based on research, the Johnnie Walker Blue Label is a “masterpiece of the rarest and exceptional” scotch whiskies from different regions of Scotland. When you look at a scotch whiskey regional map, you will notice various different regions where whisky is produced and the whiskies used to produce the Johnnie Walker Blue Label are from any one of the colored areas on the map.
The tasting notes indicate spicy notes with honey and a slight flavor of smoke. I was able to detect some smokiness in the flavor and some spice around the edges of the tongue. The smoky flavor is similar to Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest Scotch Whisky.
The Johnnie Walker Blue Label is a good blend for special occasions or a group of friends having a chill session on a guy’s day out or hanging out barbecuing. As far as a sipping whisky goes, I would pass it up based on the price point alone. I cannot see investing $179.00 for a 750ml bottle or around $489 for a 1.5 Liter bottle. The price point is based on the Total Wines and More as of Mar 18, 2016. As you can probably tell from the featured picture, I opted for the 200ml bottle and the retail price was around $70.
As far as cigars go, I would probably look at pairing the Johnnie Walker Blue Label with a Davidoff Special <<R>> cigar. The cigar has a mild-medium flavor with a Connecticut wrapper and it retails for around $18.00. I figured that since the whisky is a blend and the flavors vary it would probably be good to go with a mild to mild-medium cigar.
