This bottling was part of the Johnnie Walker Blue Label Lunar New Year pack series, 2016: Year of the Monkey.
This was the third in this line of annual limited editions, this bottle is inspired by the culture of the Chinese Zodiac. The sign of the Zodiac Monkey represents “an explorer who shows that a fearless heart and agile tenacity can win the crown,” the company said, adding that this is an embodiment of the spirit of Johnnie Walker. On the bottle, white glaze with blue ink renders the elegance of Chinese blue and white porcelain.
Nose - Mellow, rounded, with a dry smokiness, mixed with raisin sweetness.
Taste - Hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges, followed by kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.
Finish - Rich and uniquely long with a satisfying finish of smoke and pepper, ending with a glorious touch of spice.
