John Walker was a grocer and tea blender. He began to blend whisky to appease his customers and found he had a knack for it. Fast forward 200 years, and Johnnie Walker, and their Red Label, are the number one selling Scotch whisky in the world. The Red Label is really designed for a long drink, or highball as you might know it.

Tasting Notes

"There is a moderate amount of peat smoke on the nose due to malts from distilleries Caol Ila and Talisker. As you begin to taste, dried herbs, cereal, and red fruits emerge. As you finish the malt, it becomes somewhat bitter and full of oak spice."
