Johnnie Walker

Johnnie Walker 15 Years Old, Pure Malt
Blended Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Neat, characterful and witty. Keeps the woody tones in the back.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Johnnie Walker Black Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Is Black Label a great whisky? Was Dizzy Gillespie a great musician?

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Johnnie Walker Black Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
9 Deceptively gentle at first. I have on occasion been completely led astray by what seems to be mildness of this whisky, then taken on a journey of rediscovery. I find new flavours every time.

Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
The freshness of Red has been replaced by chewy mellow notes. Big flavour. Exemplary blending.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Johnnie Walker Blue Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
9 A lovely, luxurious whisky. I imagine a restaurant called café Opera. First, a little foie gras, then a couple of Maine lobsters, Marron glacé....and Blue Label?

Johnnie Walker Blue Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Again the smoke, again the richness of character.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label The Casks Edition
Blended - Scotland - 55.80%
8 A well structured dram. It only needs a small dash of water to cut the edges.

Johnnie Walker Double Black
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Not unpleasant but light in flavours although syrupy in texture.

Johnnie Walker Explorer's Club Collection The Spice Road
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A well-balanced dram. Enjoyable, just lacks some muscle.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Unctuous and smooth.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Stylish and cool. Supper club whisky.

Johnnie Walker Green Label
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
Multi-faceted,elegant and intriguing.

Johnnie Walker Platinum 18 years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Though I miss Gold at this age statement this is a worthy replacement with a little more overt Walker characteristics: smoke and a sherried grip.

Johnnie Walker Red Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Full of youthful daring, but with enough stamina to last all night (this means that you and your buddy will probably drink the whole bottle).

Johnnie Walker Red Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
The key here is how it performs dilute where the smoothness is accentuated but without eliminating the defining energy.

Johnnie Walker The Royal Route
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Not unpleasant but not much character. And that cereal sweetness is cloying.
