Johnnie Walker Blue is a highly complex tipple that is created from some exceptionally rare whiskies.

Johnnie Walker Blue has a perfumy and waxy smell which is both floral and sweet.

When you take a sip, you’ll get a velvety combination of vanilla, honey and rose petals, before it broadens out to include a zesty orange flavour with notes of hazelnut, sherry and dark chocolate.

Pick up a bottle for £138.99 via The Bottle Club website and you can shop the entire Johnnie Walker collection.

Known for its peaty single malts, the Scottish island of Islay is located to the west of the mainland and is one of the smallest Whisky regions in Scotland.

Islay is currently home to 8 distilleries, 3 of which are world-famous: Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Lagavulin. 

According to The Bottle Club, Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Malt Whisky tops the list as one of the richest, most full-bodied peated whiskies and the only single malt Scotch whisky to be awarded the Royal Warrant by HRH Prince of Wales. 

Distilled the same way today as when it was invented 75 years ago, it has a hugely smoky and seaweed-like smell with a bold lingering taste.

Add a bottle to your basket for £30.49 and check out the entire Laphroaig range via The Bottle Club website.

The world’s oldest licensed distillery, Bushmills first got its license to distill back in 1608 and now you can taste the fruits of its labour.

Nothing has changed after more than 400 years, its whiskies are made with the same methods and craftsmanship.

One of Bushmills’ classic products, Bushmills 16-Year-Old Three Wood Whiskey has been matured in three different types of cask, each contributing extra nuances to what is destined to become a classic Irish malt. 

Its smell is a floral bouquet with a touch of vanilla and a hint of oak and pepper spice.

While it tastes juicy and refreshing with notes of cherry alongside dried fruit and toffee.

Get your bottle for £79.99 via The Bottle Club website or shop the entire Bushmills collection.

Woodford Reserve is the Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey, founded in 1812 and is a whiskey of which against all others is measured.

The Bottle Club says that Woodford Reserve doesn’t hold back with its depth of flavours in each bottle being unmatched.

It has delicious notes of toffee and citrus made from a fine-tuned, exacting recipe of 72% corn, 18% rye, 10% malted barley. 

With Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Whiskey, it is aged the same way as the classic Woodford Reserve but is further matured in barrels which have been heavily toasted and lightly charred, giving it an added depth of sweet oaken character as well as the sweet flavours so prominent with the brand.

Treat yourself to the Double Oaked whiskey for £50.20 via The Bottle Club website or shop the full collection here.
