Johnnie Walkie – Walk in Red or Walk in Black

By on July 19, 2017 in Drinking, Whiskey with 0 Comments

I remember growing up watching my dad, pour a Black Label Johnnie Walker over 3 ice cubes, and tell me that’s the way that Scotch should be drunk.  I remember thinking that I can’t wait to try it.  Well when I was old enough (18 years in Australia), I went for dad’s liquor cabinet and grabbed a bottle of Red Label Johnnie Walker, and I was hooked.

In the year 1820 sir John Walker had a vision. To create one of the finest single malt blends the world has ever known. By 2006 Johnnie Walkie Gold Label was one of the most consumed scotchs in the world. At over 120 million bottle sold annually, it is estimated that four bottles per second are enjoyed in 200 countries around the world.

So what color do you walk with? That is a matter of personal taste. You can go with the vibrant blend of the red label, which tends to be the most common for everyday celebrations. Or choose the complex and deeply mellow black label, used throughout time as experience malt.

The choice is yours as both are a wonderful scotch whiskey and will prove to be enjoyable whatever the toast.  If the moment proves to be one that you will want to remember for a lifetime, try the rare and expensive blue label scotch.

No matter which Walker you walk with surely you will not be let down.  I have since moved onto a completely different blend Jameson’s
