Johnnie Walker Red Label is a non-age statement whisky. As a result, at least some of the whiskies utilized in the mix will be at least three years old, with some perhaps being older. The blending team can add richness and intensity to the finalized composition by blending whiskies of varied ages. The flavor profile sought for the given product can be achieved by combining older whiskies with younger casks.
This taste is robust, with bright and smokey notes that linger even after blending. A mellow foundation of vanilla, spicy cinnamon, crisp black pepper, fresh zestiness, and a lingering, smoky aftertaste.
Whisky can be consumed in a variety of ways. All that counts is that you have fun. However, some practices can enhance the enjoyment of whisky.
Choose your glass first. If you're drinking whisky neat or with a bit of water or ice, you'll need a sturdy, substantial tumbler. Use a 'highball' for 'long' whisky beverages.
Then, decide what temperature you would like your whisky to be. This significantly impacts the flavor and 'mouthfeel,' or how the whisky appears in your mouth.
Now for the drink. Taking the time to appreciate a fine whisky's unique scent - the 'nose' – can be pretty satisfying. Take a drink now. 'Savor the flavor' by taking your time and letting the whisky glide over your tongue for ten seconds before allowing it to slide down your throat easily.' The most straightforward way to drink whisky is neat, with a swig of cool water between sips.
