Skip the Tie: Give Dad the Gift of Johnnie Walker

One of the most instantly recognizable whisky names in the world and the global best-selling Scotch, Johnnie Walker is a gift Dad will truly appreciate. Pick up the Johnnie Walker four pack sampler at Bottles and treat Dad to something extra special this Father’s Day.

Johnnie Walker 4 pack sampler/200ml ($99.99), includes:

Black Label: An 80-proof (40% ABV) blend of about 40 whiskies, each aged at least 12 years. Caol Ila and Talisker are the dominating single malts in this blend. Black Label was Winston Churchill’s “whisky of choice.”

Gold Label: An 80-proof (40% ABV) blend of more than 15 single malts, particularly Clynelish. It was derived from Alexander Walker II’s blending notes for a whisky to commemorate Johnnie Walker’s centenary. His original efforts were thwarted by a shortage of these malts following World War I. Gold Label is commonly bottled at 15 or 18 years, and usually labeled “The Centenary Blend.”

Platinum Label: An 80-proof (40% ABV) private blend, aged 18 years and sold alongside Gold Label Reserve.

Blue Label: Johnnie Walker’s premium 80-86 proof blend with no age statement. Blue Label, also known as Max Walker, is blended to recreate the character and taste of some of the earliest whisky blends created in the 19th century. Bottles are numbered serially and sold in a silk-lined box accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. It is one of the most expensive blended Scotches on the market.
