"I've always been fascinated by the distinct favour profiles that distilleries 
from each of the four corners of Scotland offer, and what they individually add 
to our whiskies. The Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series gives us the 
opportunity to take people on a guided tour of the whisky producing regions,

doubles as a accompanying guide to the whisky, and the region it comes from.

the whisky within originates from (Speyside, Highlands, Islay, or Lowlands) is 
highlighted, along with interesting facts and trivia relating to that part of 
the country.
