Key Information

Johnnie Walker Red Label, with its distinctive and exuberant flavour was created to be drunk as a long drink - a favourite choice for celebrating every day. It was originally known as Extra Special Old Highland Whisky, and was introduced as Red Label in 1909 to suit a new generation of whisky drinkers.

Now this adventurous blend can be found in more than 200 countries. It's always been a drink that captures a truly international spirit, and as it has proved over the decades, it is the world's favourite whisky.

The world's best selling whisky is still going strong. Red Label is a powerful combination of spicy, smoky malts, such as Talisker, and lingering, lighter grains. Its robust qualities are what make it so good for drinking long.

The global success of Red Label is just one reason why it is now considered to be the classic taste of blended Scotch whisky.

I would certainly mix this one, you get what you pay for, but its a great whisky none the less.

A very nice whisky that is very hard to find unless you buy from this site! I think this has a much nicer taste than the black one. This is definitely one to drink on a cold night in front of the fire.

Johnnie Walker is the most respected name in Scotch Whisky; but that doesn't necessarily mean that the lowly red label is the most representative of this name. Definitely to be consumed with a mixer; it's palate as a straight beverage I can only describe as impure...it brings to mind barbecue sauce! The nose is very pale - not as sharp as most blends, and with a very blunt impact rather like shoe polish.

While the official stance is that 'Red Label' is designed for long drinks, Johnnie Waler Red Label is a fine drink in it's own right. It's subtle spiced and smokey flavour really give this whisky great character. Johnnie Walker describe this whisky as 'the vibrant blend' and it is certainly that. It is a great beginner's whisky, but that does not mean that it is only for beginners. The more you drink it, the more complex the drink can become. I personally prefer this, now, to the more popular Black Label. Not to be overlooked.

A worthy blend and one that will only disappoint the most demanding drinkers. A whisky you will enjoy again and again.
