Johnny walker pure malt

Postby maltcollector » Sun Dec 26, 2004 2:13 pm

I recently tried to purchase a bottle of johnny walker green label, but ended up with a bottle of the old pure malt which green label has took over from from.
Do you think the pure malt will now become a collectable item ?

Possibly, but vatted malts and Johnnie Walker bottlings don't seem to attract the same high prices from collectors as the single malts do.

Highly unlikely. Going by current trends, pure malts in any form are unilikely to gain value. Further, the J W Green Label is a rather unremarkable malt and hence its ancestry may not create interest.

[b]I must disagree. There is much interest in rarer Johnnie Walker bottlings, and though the vatted malt is still the same product in Johnnie Walker Green Label, the older "Pure Malt" label will grow in value, just as the original Johnnie Walker Blue Label, Johnnie Walker Oldest, did over the years. I would hold on to an unopen version of the Pure Malt for some time. Also, if you can get your hands on one of the few remaining bottles of Cardhu Pure Malt, it would be worth the investment.

I must agree with you here as there is much traffic in JW products on ebay. The interest in the worlds number one brand is quite high and there will be some associated collecting interest. 8)

There's certainly a curious aspect to it isn't there? 8)

Lawrence,

There are a few well known names from the industry posting on here at the moment. I believe that these forums should remain as discussion areas and not promtiomal oppurtunities.
Most people in the US will know who Johnnywalking is.

It would be nice if they declared themselves so we could distinguish between the 'official' line and conversation between friends. Although I think it's apparent when we're being fed a line.
