Whiskey Label Honors Queen Elizabeth


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Queen Elizabeth II is marking 60 years on the throne. Well, Johnny Walker wanted to do something special for her. The whiskey label released a new blend called Diamond Jubilee. It's been distilling since 1952 and a bottle costs $200,000. No free samples here. For all that money, you might wonder what it tastes like. Well, according to a review in the Whiskey Advocate, it's got a velvet texture, a bitter perfume of spices, and a score of only 93 out of 100. It's MORNING EDITION.
