Johnnie Walker Blue Label Elusive Umami
Introducing Johnnie Walker Blue Label Elusive Umami, a pioneering Scotch Whisky inspired by the enigmatic fifth taste. Master Blender Emma Walker and Chef Kei Kobayashi joined forces to create a blend that captures the elusive umami flavor. The result is a balanced whisky with sweet and savory notes of blood oranges, red berries, sweet wood spice, and a hint of smoked meat, finishing with a long, sweet fruit finish.
Hand-picked casks from select distilleries bring out this unique umami character, with only one in 25,000 casks succeeding. Emma Walker recommends savoring it neat with caviar for the full sensory experience, while Chef Kei Kobayashi praises its subtle richness. This limited edition release exemplifies Johnnie Walker's commitment to pushing whisky boundaries and offers a new generation of whisky lovers an immersive, sensory journey.
