Johnnie Walker Blue Label 'Elusive Umami' Limited Edition
Proof: 43% Alc/Vol
Description: Introducing the limited release Johnnie Walker Blue Label Elusive Umami, inspired by one of the world’s most hard-to-define and alluring profiles; umami. A partnership of two masters of their craft; whisky making with Master Blender Emma Walker and creative gastronomy, with Chef Kei Kobayashi who brings a unique craftmanship and flair to his cuisine – like the rarity and craft that goes into making every bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
In their pursuit to decode one of the world's most mysterious flavors, the pair set out on a journey of flavor discovery, endeavoring to create a blend that encapsulates the enigmatic taste of umami.
The result - a beautifully balanced Scotch whisky of sweet and savory flavors, with notes of blood oranges and red berries with sweet wood spice, a touch of smoked meat, a hint of salt and pepper with a long, sweet fruit finish.
Selected casks from inland and coastal distilleries are hand-picked at the height of their maturation for their unique umami profile - only one in 25,000 casks succeeds in bringing this elusive character to life.
