Moving along with my Johnnie Walker series, we have the fan-favorite Green Label. Most notable, it’s labeled as a blended malt, as opposed to a blended Scotch containing grain whisky. Is the $55 Johnnie Walker Green worth the small premium over Black? We shall see.
Pour: Johnnie Walker Green Label
Age: 15 years
Color: light amber
Nose: glazed apple, smoky citrus, hints of floral spice
Taste: charred melon, classic vanilla syrup, baked pear
Finish: moderate length w/ toasted caramel, oak, sweet earthy spice
Overall: While I’m uncertain any Johnnie Walker expression could dethrone Black as my personal favorite, the Green definitely warrants cause for pause. Ultimately, Green is an elegant whisky, rich in flavor and surprising complexity to boot. Quite satisfactory.
Rating: Go green.
One thought on “Johnnie Walker Green Label”
I did enjoy the first Green in 2004, then no more Green (by JW choice), then again as soon it was available I started putting in my because it is very good, another kind of Black, hold the grain kind.
It may be expensive but I can’t get any of the malts in the blend bill for the some money at a similar age.
Worth every penny!
