Johnnie Walker Green Label

Country: Scotland
Brand: Johnnie Walker
Type: Blended Malt
Age: 15
Cask: American&European Oaks
ABV: 43%
Proof: 86

Nose: A distinctive woody start with cedar and sandal wood. Chocolate notes with understated smoke aromas blended with caramel and tropical fruits. Adding water adds complexity where you find your self in a fruit orchard circled by lemon and orange peels with summer flowers.
Palate: Has a creamy texture. A stodgy and intense mouth coating liquid is felt with a big body. Honeycomb, milk chocolate, oak, mango and smoky notes meet with balance and makes you wish the glass won’t finish.
Finish: Peppers and maltiness are the first distinct characters. Light cereal notes turn into vanilla and oaky traces with tropical fruits.

Johnnie Walker Green Label was a miracle I met in my university graduation celebrations. Until 2012, it was a great dram I enjoyed to drink when Diageo stopped production.

Now it is back!! And, yes it is good as before! This blended malt has Talisker, Caol Ila, Cragganmore and Linkwood malts in it, resulting in a wonderfully balanced character. Crazy easy to drink and has a complex flavor profile.

Complexity and richness in flavor during nosing and explosive flavor in palate brings out a great single malt experience. Talisker’s smoky notes keep you amazed every second. Speyside malts gives a great nature feeling with their fruity and intense floral characters. Caol Ila adds spices to keep your palate alive.

A must to buy and drink!
