5 Johnnie Walker Brands You Should Know

written by Andrew Onyango 6th November 2014

The Love Whisky Festival is in full swing and we are going around pubs and parties meeting people who appreciate a good whisky. Are you one of these people?

This week we are all about Johnnie Walker and here are the 5 Johnnie Walker Brands you should try during this festival.


Red Label

Johnnie Walker Red is the youngest of the JW family but like most youngsters it is full of life and vitality. It is 40% alcohol by volume (ABV) and a smooth flavor you have come to know and love. And you need to try it with Ginger. Thank me later!


Black Label

Johnnie Walker black is aged 12 years in a breathable oak barrel to give it a stronger flavor. If you want to know a good whisky, there are two steps. First the color is darker meaning it is older. Second, the aroma is much more delicious. Where as you might just drink younger whisky, when it comes to JW Black, you slow down and savor the experience.


Gold Label

JW Gold is a mature whisky at a staggering 18 years of aging. A lot of whisky lovers will say that 18 years aging is a perfect place to stop aging whisky because it is that “magic spot” where flavors, aromas and even the smoothness of the drink as it flows down one’s throat, are just right. Trust me, you do not want to miss out on enjoying this whisky during the festival.


Blue Label

Finally, the Blue Label. The stuff of royalty! This whisky is made with a hint of chocolate matched perfectly with the oak to give an intense flavor guaranteed to make you say… “Ohhhhh!” And this is ultimately what you want in a good whisky, a flavor that makes you slow down and savor it.

Now you know which brands to look out for during the Love Whisky Festival.

Alcoholic drinks are NOT for sale to people under the age of 18. Please drink responsibly!

I love Red Label on it’s own, but sometime I mix it with Ginger Ale and Fresh orange juice. Good to see that I have not been far off
