Blending is part art, part science – it’s a skill the Walker family developed over many generations. Red Label with its combination of light whiskies from Scotland’s east coast and dark, peaty whiskies from the west coast, created a blend with an extraordinary depth of flavour. The taste travels right across your palate to deliver a flavour experience no ordinary whisky can match.
The character of the whisky is defined by intense, spicy, zingy, edgy flavours. Red Label bursts onto the palate with the freshness of spray from a crashing wave, followed by the zing of aromatic spices and finally a long, lingering, smoky finish. The sensation in the mouth is complex – ‘sweet chilli’ is a good description of this taste and the tingling sensation on the tongue.
Whisky expert Dave Broom says of Red Label, “This is out dog off on your bike along the coast with the wind blowing in your face, the surf is up, the wind is whipping the grass, there is salt in the air, spring is turning to summer.” Red Label combines distinctiveness, passion and character with style and persona.
