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.
