Whisky is one of the most widely consumed alcoholic beverages in the world, and one of the best known and valued varieties are Scotch whisky, Irish whiskey and bourbon, originating in the American state of Kentucky. Its name derives from the Celtic expression uische beatha (water of life) and is a distilled liqueur with a graduation of between 40 and 60 degrees. It can be taken alone, with ice or combined. And one of the world's best-selling whiskies is the Johnnie Walker Black Label.
Johnnie walker black label
Johnnie Walker Black Label is a 40 degree whisky variety, a blend of malt and grain from Scotland that has received multiple awards around the world.
The Johnnie Walker company was born with its founder, John Walker, a son of farmers who began selling his own whiskies in a Kilmarnock store and bequeathed to his son the recipe for a near-perfect whisky that, throughout the last third of the 19th century, conquered the world.
At that time, the brand marketed three varieties of the drink: Old Highland Whisky, Special Old Highland and Extra Special Old Highland, the first of which became Black Label shortly thereafter.
The Black Label is special because is result of blending up to 40 aged whiskies, aged for a minimum of 12 years in oak barrels. This results in a smooth and very rich in nuances and beautiful amber color.
To enjoy its taste, obviously, it is better to consume it alone or serve with ice, but if you choose to combine it is advisable to let the liquor retain its prominence, for example, with the only addition of a splash of ginger ale, sparkling water or, for fans of exotic touches, coconut water.
