In 2020 we get another limited edition of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. This time around it features a design by Eiji Okuda, actor, director, and illustrator.As we saw last year, this version of Blue Label features only unique bottle art, while the liquid inside is the same. This year it follows a theme of “fortitude of Japanese spirit, with gracefulness and flexibility.” That’s expressed through the motifs of a dragon, sakura, and the moon.
It’s a tad steeper than last year. This year around the 750ml/40% abv bottle goes for 22,000 yen before tax. It lands on March 24.
