"Rich wood-driven influenced aromas with deep toffee notes and spice. Toffee and oak remain consistent with hints of leather and vanilla along with a subtle sherry nuttiness creating depth and complexity.

"Johnnie Walker Blue Label was created by the Master Distiller, Jim Beveridge, who continues the tradition of unparalleled commitment to creating the world's greatest whiskies. With access to the most valuable and precious whisky stocks, he creates this rare blend using only the most exceptional of young and old whiskies. Johnnie Walker Blue Label sets the standard, with layers and layers of flavor from hand-selected, rare casks from across the distilling regions of Scotland. Its flavors are influenced by the smoke of the west and the rich, sweet whiskies of the east." —producer
"A meticulous search of the cask inventory revealed an intriguing array of fine aged malt and grain Scotch whiskies aged 25 years and older. Each cask was individually sampled and assessed by Master Blender, Stephanie MacLeod before being chosen. Once MacLeod was satisfied that she had a perfectly balanced flavour profile in the Dewar's House Style, the specially selected casks were blended together and then filled into oak casks for an additional period of maturation, a process pioneered by Dewar's, known as double-ageing, to add more depth and enriched smoothness. During this extra period of maturation, the disparate characters of the malts and grains are allowed to interact with one another and mellow further. In an extra step unique to the new 25-year-old expression, the whisky was then filled into a set of freshly disgorged Royal Brackla casks for an extra period of finishing. Dewar's 25 is endlessly smooth, rich and elegant. Awakened on the palate: the sophisticated whisky is glorious in its harmony and balance, gently revealing layers of rich fruit, floral notes and delicate honey, with a hint of smoke to finish." —producer
"Inspired by the original, Yellow Spot is the rare taste of a bonder's style Pot Still Irish whiskey. Maturation in Bourbon barrels, Sherry butts and Malaga casks creates a superbly complex whiskey with fresh and sweet top notes." —producer
