The green label has been around for around a decade. It is Diageo's opps should be .... Johnie Walker, range.
The range is ..
Red Label JW ........ rough as a badgers ar$e
Black Label JW ........ drink of the gods
Green Label JW ........ JW's only ALL MALT whisky
Gold Label JW ...... smoother than a mink codpiece
Blue Label JW ....... a very nice drink, good to have, but worth the money?
To be honest, Green Label is an all malt (or vatted) blend. The beauty of JW is that it is a blend, a blend of grain and malt. That is its 'raison d'etre', its reason for being. Please dont buy the green JW, buy a decent single malt, buy a similar Speysider malt such as Craganmore, Glen Elgin etc.
But some JW Black label, a drink that is fantastic (me being a malt man at that). To enjoy it at its peak, place a bottle in the freezer for at least 2 or 3 days with 2 or 3 shot glassess.
Bring the bottle out at the last minute and pour the syrupy whisky into the frozen shot glasses.
Trust me, I dont put ice in whisky, but I do freeze JW Black label.
