Johnnie Walker, the world's No. 1 Scotch Whisky brand has introduced the perfect solution in an exciting new addition to its world famous portfolio - Johnnie Walker Island Green, to be found in selected airports and in duty free stores worldwide from this July.
A rare blend of rich single malt whiskies from the four corners of Scotland, Johnnie Walker Island Green provides drinkers with a distinctive flavour experience allowing them to explore the character of these celebrated malts in a signature Johnnie Walker style. A duty free exclusive, Johnnie Walker Island Green is available solely to travellers, adding to its exclusiveness.
Aromas of wood smoke, pepper and spice mingle with layers of orchard fruit, gentle vanilla and sandalwood while the taste experience delivers all the character of a single malt but with greater depth and complexity amplified by the unique Island style.
Showcasing the same blended malt craftsmanship as the critically acclaimed Johnnie Walker Green Label, the exclusive taste of Johnnie Walker Island Green offers a more intense expression with a greater influence of smoky maritime malt whisky. This is balanced with robust fruity Highland malts including Clynelish™, lighter Lowland malts represented by Glenkinchie™ and the characteristically sweet and fragrant Speyside style of Cardhu™.
Jim Beveridge, Johnnie Walker Master Blender, said: "As whisky makers, we're passionate about flavour. We captured the distinctive style of individual mature malts from the four main whisky regions of Scotland, ensuring Johnnie Walker Island Green offers all the character of a single malt, but with a richer flavour experience."
The new blend was recently awarded a 'Master' at The Global Scotch Whisky Masters 2016, the highest possible ranking available at this international competition. The bottle is an exclusive product to travellers which cannot be purchased outside of duty free, making it a truly unique addition to the Johnnie Walker range.
