The most famous Premium Blend. In the World.

Johnnie Walker is one of the most recognized Whisky names in the World. The brand was established in 1860 by John “Johnnie” Walker, when he started blending Whiskies from his grocery shop in Ayrshire, Scotland. During the Victorian Era, success came when his son Alexander exported around the British Empire, establishing the Whisky early as one of the first truly global brands.

Today, Johnnie Walker’s famous square-shaped bottle — with the label set at a jaunty 24 degrees — is THE most popular blended Whisky in the world, selling more than 130 million bottles per year in nearly every country on the planet across their wide range of ages, special editions, and finishes.

And the story of the "Blue"? Back in 1867, John Walker’s son Alexander created a special premium blend of the finest Scotch Whiskies available at the time. They called it the “Old Highland Whisky,” and it was a big hit. Premium Scotches became hard to acquire during World War I, and then Prohibition prevented them from restarting the line. Johnnie Walker Blue Label is formulated to recreate the character of the original and is regarded as one of the best blends available. This should come as no surprise, as only the finest Scotch Whiskies make it into the blend - only one in every ten thousand casks, to be exact.

In fact, Johnnie Walker Blue Label is so top-of-the-line that insiders often refer to it by its nickname: “Max Walker.”

Elliot,
This bottle is severely overpriced.
Michelle
Michelle,
very good, but not as smooth as macallan rare cask
Sean
Sean,
You can purchase at Costco for $149

Decent but overpriced. I can get it in any store for $150 to $180. I have no idea how they are charging over $250 on here. Not the first time I’ve seen prices way out of order on here. Definitely not worth the money at their offering. Update it was $269 when I originally posted and now it’s down to $232? Still way over retail but why the $37 price drop? Was it something I said? Update 09FEB208: Now the price is down to $219. Quite the fluctuation in price on a standard item. Maybe I should make posts like this more often to benefit everyone.

William,
Extremely smooth and one of my absolute favourites. But I will say I like the Gold Label just as good!
Spencer
Spencer,
A very smooth scotch. My current favorite.

Premium scotch. Make friends with someone who has a bottle or save up for your own. This one doesn’t disappoint.

This has been perfected for years and the craftsmanship shows. It's one of the most refined bottles I have had the pleasure of owning.

Love the smokiness and caramel notes
Jacob
Jacob,
I think this whiskey is overrated and overpriced. You can get better tasting American whiskey. However, for a scotch it is truly very smooth. Probably one of the smoothest I’ve had however not much taste compared to whistlepig for example
Anderson

Muito bom, ótimo para finalizar o dia

Too. “Run of the mill” for the price.
Richard

A little disappointed with the price so high. Was not a $200 value. Prefer the Glenlivet 15 and 18 over this any day. Better taste, better value.

Has that typical Johnnie walker taste. Good but not worth the money.

Very smooth and easy drinking scotch. An excellent blended scotch.

So very bland. If you like smoothness without any taste, this is the whisky for you.

smooth, wet, mildest of smoky fruit
Stephen
Stephen,
This is my favorite scotch. I have been drinking Johnnie Walker for years. I enjoy the smoky simplicity of it. The taste is consistent and smooth; good for a special occasion toast, and mellow enough to be a daily pre-dinner cocktail. Enjoy neat or on the rocks.

Beautifully complex. From nose to finish this bottle will make any whiskey drinker happy.

This is also very good and I would never turn it down if it was offered to me.

What can ya say to blue label. It's a renowned blend and as we've heard on TV it's almost not worth drinking if your not drinking blue label. So does it live up to the hype and 200 dollar price tag? Well yes and no. Is it an amazing blend that balances the well known flavors of scotland. Well yes indeed it does. Can you taste the loving craftsmanship of the blender and sense that most of this blend is very old and we'll aged? Indeed. But is it as good as the hype and the price tag? Maybe but I would rather spend less on the gold or platinum labels. Blue is better, but not twice as good like the price would suggest. Definitely a delicious whiskey and a bottle that will be tucked away for quite peaceful evenings when I want something special.

Points for smoothness. The grey goose of scotch. Very smooth. No real flavor. Glad it wasn't my money ...

Sipped a bit of this at a best friends wedding. Delightfully smooth and peaty. One of the best things I have ever tasted.

It has competition but not much. Price causes me to go for the blue only on rare occasions.

Every taste testing I do JW always finishes top shelf. We have had five to seven very fine bottles of Scotch Wiskey and three to seven tasters and 10 out of 10 pick the JW Blue.
Henry
Henry,
Simply the smoothest and most flavorful Scotch available. Worth every cent for the unequaled quality you get. A truly civilized libation for the most demanding palates.

Pleasant nose but too medicinal on the taste. As blends go, spend a bit more and go for the Jameson Rarest as it's much more enjoyable.

My first taste of blended scotch, bought to celebrate the birth of my daughter. Great flavor real smooth. But I'm a purist love the single malts.
Kuljit
Kuljit,
Marketing is very well maintained and a nice drink to savour Over rated in my opinion. Try the XR 21 yr old. Much more depth and flavour
anonymous

Could be a great one except for: 40% ABV makes it anemic and the price tag makes it stupid.

There is a reason it's so famous, it's a damn good whisky. Well balanced and so smooth.
