I decided to get back to my roots by reviewing Johnnie Walker Red Label, one of the biggest selling whiskies in the world – usually the “cheapest whisky in the house”, when you ask the bartender. Nothing great but along with Jack Daniel’s one of the first whiskies, I’ve ever tasted.
This is a legendary blend of 35 grain and malt whiskies. Everyone knows it. Too bad the reputation doesn’t make it any better. Know that I got to taste it again, after all these years – it kinda feels bit better. Has it gone smoother over the years?
Smoother or not, I still have to call this walker The Running Man. It is a classic, a legend, like the movie. But they both are awfully humorous.
The malt whisky for Johnnie Walker Red Label comes from Dailuaine distillery.
Ralfy comparing Red Label’s by Johnnie Walker: sixties against the 2010 version, enjoy:
