Johnnie Walker Red Label

Aged: no age statement

Colour: dark amber

Strength: 40%

Best for: lobbing into cocktails with wild abandon. Preferably in a Vegas penthouse

Nose: kicks pretty hard meaning you won’t get much on a first hit. Acclimatisation brings floral notes, fresh summer fruits and vanilla though

Taste: not quite as harsh as the nose, but almost, this finally settles down into heavy malt and winter spices

Verdict: drink it on its own and you’ll see why it was blended for mixing…
