This cocktail recipe variation uses the Johnnie Walker Red Label Blended Scotch Whisky as its main attraction. The Red Label Whisky is famous for its rich and aromatic nose of honey, peels and spices engulfed in a soft smoke, butterscotch, barley and malt palate. The Red Label Whisky finishes off with a long spiced trail which makes it perfect for a nuanced drinking experience on its own, or perfect for cocktail recipes such as this one as well. The slight bitterness from the woody oak perfectly combines with the honey-like aftertaste of the whisky followed by light vanilla and oak.
A Hole In One is a cocktail recipe that would combine the best of both worlds, tea and whisky for you! As you take a sip, the tea gets engulfed in the gentle smoke along with the subtle spicy and malt notes from the Johnnie Walker Red Label Blended Scotch Whisky, which are then further enhanced by the subtle deep sweetness from the honey. This Red Label Whisky cocktail recipe is a perfect choice for celebrations, along with your friends or even while you are looking for a simple yet sophisticated drink to sip in your leisure time.
