早陣子獲邀到Armani/Prive 參與Johnnie Walker Blue Label 2015 限量版的發佈會暨派對，場內不但有以Blue Label 和 Black Label 作基調的雞尾酒供賓客選擇，更有小食伴隨。
Recently was invited to join the Johnnie Walker Blue Label 2015 Limited Edition Launch Party at Armani/Prive. At the party, there were not only the 4 cocktails mixed with Blue Label and Black Label, but also a selection of canapes provided by Armani/Prive.
名為Coast to Coast的雞尾酒，以Black Label為基調，加入了香料、菠蘿，味道帶點煙燻味，卻有點點甜味中和。
Coast to Coast was a combination of Black Label with spice & pineapple. It tasted a bit smoky but the sweetness of the pineapple balanced it well.
Burning Light 比較濃，但是會讓人忍唔住多來一杯的。以Double Black為基調，加入了甜苦艾酒，你大概會想象到那種苦味。但是煙燻味卻是比苦味濃烈，非常特別的組合。
Burning Light was a rich combination of Double Black and sweet vermouth. You may be able to imagine the bitterness of this cocktail, but the smokiness was definitely richer than the bitterness. A special combination that you don’t want to resist another glass.
For sure there was the Blue Label, the crystal-clear golden color. The 2015 edition was only different on the packaging and outlook, but not much different on the taste.
The canapes provided by Armani/Prive were as attractive as the whiskey. Slow-cooked cod fish, salmon confit, crab meat toast and chocolate brownie. Personally like the cod fish and salmon better.
Blue Label has released the special edition for CNY, the year of Goat. If you like collecting Johnnie Walker special edition, go check it out.
