Johnnie Walker’s limited edition Double Black blend that has taken the travel retail market by storm launched in Malaysia Thursday at 21, BSC.
It’s been available since Nov last year at duty-free, and was meant to be exclusive to that segment, but not anymore.
“Overwhelming demand dictated that it should be introduced to a wider audience but still as a limited edition targeting key gifting occasions,” says Charles Wright, JW brand manager.
It uses whiskies from Scotland’s west coast, thus making it peatier, smokier and more intense. I enjoy it with water. Anyway i reviewed it a few months back here.
The bottle is nice – shape-wise, the same at the Black Label, with a charcoal tint. Labelling is a lil different. ABV is unchanged at 40%.
U can get your thirsty throats satisfied with this award-winner at Cold Storage, Jusco, Sunshine and other retailers. Recommended retail price is about $209.
U want it, get it, coz it’s estimated to run locally until CNY 2012.
