I'm presenting JW Green at a tasting for some malt enthusiasts in a couple of weeks.
I intend to serve it blindfolded. They'll be expecting a single malt, so I'm very keen to see their reactions!
I'll post and let you know the outcome.
Okay...last night was the night, and I served the JW Green up blind.
It was the third whisky in the line up, having already served Glenrothes Select Reserve & Benromach Traditional (both of which were pretty poor whiskies).
Comments for the JW Green were quite favourable, with several people applauding its complexity and balance. Average score (in a group of 11 people) was around 7.5, which was pretty respectable for this particular group of discerning palates.
Not surprisingly, there was much raising of eyebrows and rolling of eyes when it was revealed that they'd just complimented a Johnnie Walker bottling!
