JOHNNIE WALKER GOLD LABEL was blended to celebrate the first 100 years of JOHNNIE WALKER in 1920. A well-kept secret, it’s only been available outside the company since the 1990s. It has a distinctly smooth, sweet and luxurious character, with a stylish elegance and refined quality.
GOLD LABEL is crafted using whiskies such as CLYNELISH for a honeyed flavour and creamy texture yet still retaining the signature JOHNNIE WALKER smokiness.
With its rich gold colour and old-gold glints, it reveals a full, round, deep nose. There are notes of soft raisins and toffee, fresh malt and light cream GOLD LABEL is as enticing as it is sensuous.
Its palate is rich and broad with full malt flavours and honeyed spices with almonds and marzipan, which leads to a distinctive creaminess.
CARDHU provides strong yet smooth malt and oak flavours. Extra-mature grain whiskies deliver some of the lingering sweetness, while CLYNELISH from the northern Highlands is responsible for the unusual aromatic creaminess. The finish is multi-dimensional and satisfyingly long.
