Johnnie Walker Cardhu final releases

Here is a very rare example of a 1 Litre late bottling of Cardhu.

Note that the bottle on the left would be your standard 70s to early 80s Cardhu with the striding man logo clearly visible on the neck label and also on outer box packaging.

Bottle 2 on the right only refers to Johnnie walker on the very fine script at the bottom of the face label. Normally this later version of Cardhu (early 90s) was at the time when Johnnie Walker were making plans to re-ignite their Cardhu distillery with its own Branding hence today the Cardhu Whisky is its own standalone brand, still owned by the Johnnie Walker parent company Diageo.

We believe this particular bottle was one of a very few, possibly a months or two production or even possibly to deplete the last few labels that still adorned any reference to Johnnie Walker.

Johnnie Walker Island Green

Hot news from the stig Nick RV of this special edition of the Green Label.

Island Green is due to be released in Duty free stores globally this July 2016 in 1 litre bottles.

Johnnie Walker Island Green captures the distinctive style of individual mature malts from the four main whisky regions of Scotland with added prominence given to island malts. As with Johnnie Walker Green Label it offers all the character of single malt but with a wider flavour experience.

Jim Beveridge, Johnnie Walker master blender, says: “As whisky makers, we’re passionate about flavour, and creating this exclusive travel retail variant of our blended malt whisky has given us an opportunity to showcase a rare blend of rich malts. We wanted to preserve the character of each of the malts in this whisky but at the same time create a different, more intense flavour experience for travellers.”

Stuart Morrison of the Johnnie Walker blending team, says this has been achieved by giving Caol Ila from the island of Islay a greater influence in the blend: “The added prominence of the smoky, maritime nature of Caol Ila has been very carefully balanced with robust fruity Highland malts including Clynelish, lighter Lowland malts represented by Glenkinchie and the characteristically sweet and fragrant Speyside style of Cardhu.
