Delivered via a striking package that boasts such luxuries as a bespoke bottle, the special Johnnie Walker Blue Label Capsule Series by Tom Dixon is billed as having features that are “characteristic of Dixon’s contemporary designs” and is being promoted as a “deliberate nod to the art of whisky-making,” noting the copper accents of the physical presentation. Regarding inspiration, Johnnie Walker and Tom Dixon both looked to whiskey’s storied history for their creative cues.

“The copper stills, the oak barrels, the supreme expertise needed to produce a classic product — this was all instrumental to my thinking,” explains Dixon, recalling Johnnie Walker’s decorated past.”

“What Tom and I each do in our work starts with an idea and urge to create something meaningful,” reads an official quote from Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge. “The ‘ideas’ part is easy, the real challenge is in the trying and the relentless experimentation before, eventually, things begin to come together.”

Johnnie Walker Blue Label has a mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a Johnnie Walker signature flavour) mixing with raisin sweetness. It is best savoured with the palate cleansed and cooled by iced water. One sip reveals a velvety mouth-feel, then an explosion of flavour. At once you'll discover hazelnuts, honey, Rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.

An extraordinary whisky for extraordinary occasions. Only sublime, rare whiskies at the pinnacle of perfection are used in the blending of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, with only 1 in 10,000 casks containing whisky deemed of a high enough standard to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste. Each is hand selected by the Johnnie Walker Master Blender himself, part of an unbroken lineage of Master Blenders stretching back over 190 years. He uses his decades of experience to select some of the rarest casks from the Johnnie Walker reserves for their quality, character and flavour to create the powerful, complex, smooth character of Blue Label. it is the ultimate expression of whisky making today and an remarkable achievement for the modern era. The story of Johnnie Walker begins with the man who gave his name to the brand. In 1819 most grocers stocked a line of single malts, but John wanted to create something more consistent. With a natural gift for business, John started blending them together in his grocery shop to create his own whisky that tasted just as good every time. As the business passed from father to son and then grandson, the unique blends created by the Walkers combined with their skill and flair for business enabled the brand to flourish around the world. With the introduction of the famous square bottle to reduce breakages and the distinctive label, slanted at precisely 24 degrees, the whisky blends were able to stand out even further from the crowd.</p> </p> Today, Johnnie Walker is the biggest whisky brand in the world - See more at: <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p>
