Special occasions demand special ingredients. To mark the first centenary of John Walker & Sons Limited in 1920, the founder's grandson, Alexander Walker, created the recipe for a sublime whisky. This master of the art of blending selected exceptionally mature rare whiskies in celebration of the ultimate family occasion; 100 years building a thriving business dedicated to creating whisky of the very highest quality. Johnnie Walker Gold Label is a rich blend of rare whiskies, each aged for a minimum of 18 years, including the distinctive malt Clynelish. Deep seductive aromas of soft raisins, coffee, fresh malt and light cream give way to voluptuous flavors of vanilla, honey, rich fruit, and a trace of light smoke in the long finish. Make it as perfect for a special occasion today as it would have been in 1920.
