My take? Oh. My. Gosh. I. Am. Dying. How did the real scotch drinkers in the room feel? Elated. So I would go more with their opinion. Whenever I drink scotch I just feel like I'm pouring fire and death down my throat. It's not something I want to work on acquiring a taste for, like my wine love, but I know there are die hard fans out there and if you are one of them I think you will enjoy this.
According to the Johnnie Walker website:
"A glass of Johnnie Walker Gold Label is pure indulgence. A skillful blend of rare aged malts creates the rich, creamy, and honeyed flavors of Gold Label. Inspired by the notes of Sir Alexander Walker, who created the original blend in 1920 to mark the birthday of his grandfather John Walker, this is a whisky made for celebration."
Description: Gold Label is an unusually special whisky, as few can retain their flavor when served chilled. A blend of 15 different whiskies, each aged at least 18 years, Johnnie Walker Gold Label is best served frozen for 24 hours to release its light fruity flavors and true honey sweetness. Johnnie Walker was created in 1920 to mark the 100th anniversary of Johnnie Walker and Sons, but not available in the U.S. until 1995
Really fascinating stuff, much more interesting than the history and information behind a lot of products, too bad I'm just not a very good scotch drinker.
For more information I suggest visiting their website although it is one of the most confusing alcohol websites I have visited, and I have visited a lot. I bet my roommate and many others would be interested in hearing that you can have bottles engraved with messages. Image receiving a bottle of Blue Label, considered an extremely delicious and pricey investment, telling you congratulations you are amazing. Very fun indeed.
