UPDATE: $140 each bottle out the door. Or $135 a bottle for a case. Killer deal, they usually retail for 179+tax per bottle.





I'm helping a friend push Johnny Walker Blue Labels. He's got a few days to move cases!! You can buy them by the bottle or the case. He has them as his store in San Leandro and Alameda or He/I can deliver them to you. PM me for more details or to purchase.

Product Notes:
Johnnie Walker Blue Label 'A blend of our very rarest whiskies', is the most acclaimed and exclusive Scotch Whisky in the world.

Aromas: Rich vanilla, with smokiness of peat, sweet wood, spicy notes.
Body: Luxuriously dense, rich and smooth. Palette, Nutty, creamy, citrus, a hint of pepper.
Finish: Long and deep, a rare complexity.
Enjoy it: Neat or on the rocks.

Character
Johnnie Walker Blue Label's intense and luxurious nature recalls the authentic character and taste of the pioneering 19th Century Walker blends. A toasty, sweet aroma is complemented by a peaty and spicy taste that develops into heady flavours of oak, dark-chocolate and rich fruitcake. Comprising just 16 of the world's rarest whiskies, Blue Label's appeal to true Scotch connoisseurs rests on the blend's dominant Islay malt whisky, balanced by several rich Speyside malts that have undergone exceptional periods of sherry oak maturation.



History
John Walker and his son Alexander began their earliest blending experiments using a limited range of whiskies, drawn mainly from the islands, the western and northern Highlands and a few distilleries in Speyside. Once they had rejected whiskies that didn't meet their standards, they found that the very best were strictly limited in supply. Following their lead, the Johnnie Walker master-blender developed Blue Label as a celebration of the founder's unremitting standards for only the highest quality whisky.



Packaging
The label's blue-green bottle made of flint glass has been faithfully recast from a 19th century Walker bottle mold, and its rare contents are secured by a traditional cork stopper rather than a screw cap. Each bottle is individually numbered as a cast-iron guarantee of authenticity and is cradled in a satin-lined presentation box as befits a blend made up of some of the world's rarest whiskies.



Claim to fame
As Blue Label is blended from some of the scarcest and most expensive whiskies in the world, availability is seriously limited. In 1993, a panel of international experts at the International Wine and Spirit Competition awarded Johnnie Walker Blue Label its most prestigious medal, the Gold Medal for the Best Blended Whisky.



About Estate:
Back in 1820, when Johnnie Walker first established his business at Kilmarnock in the west of Scotland, malt whiskies and grain whiskies were bottled singly, and a market for them barely existed outside Scotland. All this was to change. During the remainder of the century Scotch Whisky achieved international fame. The foundation of this revolution lay in the art of whisky blending which John Walker pioneered.

Single whiskies, like wine, can vary from one year to the next, and John's aim in blending was to create a consistent flavour and a quality that could be relied on time and time again. However as his experiments reached fruition, he discovered that through blending he could achieve a depth of flavour unattainable in a single malt.

Foremost among the whiskies most favoured by John were the malts shipped from the Isle of Islay. These malts were powerful in character and flavour. The intensity and richness of the blended whisky John produced reflected his personal preference for these Islay malts. His son, Alexander, continued this tradition of creating powerful blends and, in his own words, his philosophy was "to make our whisky of such quality that nothing in the market shall come before it".

Now once again the authentic character and taste of a blend typical of that pioneering era can be savoured. With only Alexander Walker's words and a few dusty text books to guide him, the Johnnie Walker master blender has achieved the ultimate feat of bringing history to life. He has created Johnnie Walker Blue Label, a celebration of the whisky blending style pioneered by John and Alexander Walker.
