Whisky Reviews for Johnnie Walker Green Label

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.37 points

  1. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Subtle smoke, caramel, cardboard, mild citrus, apple.
    • Taste
      Soft arrival, with subtle smoke, caramel, spice, red fruit, honey, oak. A gentle but full palate. It has the mouthfeel of a blend with grain whisky even though it's malt. Nice palate overall.
    • Finish
      Long, spice-led with pipe tobacco, caramel, subtle smoke, and bitterness.

  2. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Quite good, actually. The nose is the best part. The finish is the obvious let down.
    I think this would be so much better at an ABV of 48% or 46%.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Oily, caramel, musty hay, some fresh red fruit, some mint, a citrus note, almonds, some wood and a whiff of smoke
    • Taste
      87 87
      Somewhat oily, caramel, honey coated hay, some red fruits, some wood
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short, slightly bitter, quite drying. The caramel and hay die quickly in the back of the mouth. Some honey notes fly by and strike the sides of the tongue. The peat is only faintly present.

    From the perspective of the PLV, this is a buy recommendation. Also, you lose the impression that it is just a blend. Peppery smoke reminiscent of Talisker. Just noticed :-)

      Malty sweet, spicy and leathery with a pleasant smoke. Slight citrus note with light fruits. The vanilla comes through now. Pfeffrig before it starts. Class !
    • Taste
      86 86
      You could say full pipe of pepper and earthy leather. The smoke immediately combines the sweetness with orange peel and malt. Delicious ! This is a dangerously tasty blend with enough complexity for the price. Good choice. A masterpiece.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium to long and very balanced. Slightly bitter and peppery, it is on the palate. Afterwards very pleasantly chocolat sweet and with a small fruit plate he leaves the stage.

    Still the expression that proves that JW is not all crap. Still worth having a bottle of in my collection.
    • Nose
      Let's start the new year back to basics. Malt, peat, tobacco, apple, caramel and vanilla.
    • Taste
      More smoky than what I remember from this expression. Peach, tobacco, malt and apple. 
    • Finish
      Apple, smoke, caramel and nuts.
