Johnnie Walker launches Black Label sherry edition in HK

Johnnie Walker has launched the latest addition to its Black Label series, the Black Label Sherry Edition, in Hong Kong its parent company Diageo has announced.

The new limited edition aims to explore a new style of Johnnie Walker Black Label. It is said to have all the qualities of the Black Label 12 Years Old, but is matured in former Sherry casks, giving the whisky, “a richer fruitiness”, said the company.

This fruity character makes it, “perfect for introducing new whisky drinker into the world of Scotch,” it noted.

As a blended Scotch whisky, the expression also uses malts including Blair Athol, Cardhu and Strathmill resulting in a taste of “complex fresh fruit with orchard character, sweet vanilla and gentle smoke”, said Diageo.

The Scotch is best served on the rocks or as a highball with soda water and orange slice as garnish.
