THE PRIVATE BLEND A contemporary and subtly smoky blend that embodies the characteristic full flavours of JOHNNIE WALKER® Blended Scotch Whiskies and reflects a strong sweet and elegant Speyside style. It has a rich, dark and intense flavour that rewards those who take the time to savour it. Stewed fruit, malty cereal, smooth creamy vanilla, fragrant, almonds and tangerines give JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM LABEL™ its waxy, fruity and sweet taste mixed with slight drying astringency with subtle smokiness. Like the rare metal after which it is named, Johnnie Walker® Platinum Label® is rich and refined, a contemporary and complex blend of single malt and grain whiskies matured for a minimum of 18 years. Drawn from a limited number of casks, carefully chosen and retained throughout their maturation because of their exceptional character, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is a skillful blend of style and substance artfully crafted by Master Blender Jim Beveridge. Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is a complex, luxurious blend harboring deep layers of flavor that perfectly balance the diverse character of the distilleries from which it came and the wood in which it has rested. From the earliest days of their business, the Walker family and subsequent generations of Master Blenders have crafted exclusive Scotch Whiskies for the directors of their company and for private gatherings – treasured whiskies that have only ever been shared with a select few, at special occasions. Inspired by this tradition, JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM LABEL™ is a supremely rich and full-flavoured 18 year old Scotch Whisky, created for those truly special moments. JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM LABEL is drawn from a limited number of casks, carefully chosen and retained throughout their maturation because of their exceptional character. It is an intense, smooth and subtly smoky blend, crafted from Single Malt and Grain Whiskies, each matured to perfection for a minimum of 18 years.
