    Johnnie Walker White Walker 41.7% GOT special. Yellow gold. The nose is actually very nice. Grilled pineapple, candy floss, softest peat, some pic n mix sweets yet something slightly medicinal. It's a nice mix of aromas. Taste is vanilla forward, huge vanilla, oaky yet candied, very smooth and easy on the palate up front. "This is a decent blend", you start to think at this stage. The nose is great and the taste is clean with sweet impressions... Then comes an acrid note on the finish - old browned apples and burnt paper. "Oh no, have they added Talisker?", you think...yes I think so. What a shame. Leave out the Talisker and the blender has done a brilliant job. But they didn't. With it, everything comes down to its level like a classroom with a disruptive child. It's a real shame because that note keeps building and building and it simply doesn't have to be there. Still it's an okay blend I think. The acrid flavours take this potentially 80+ scoring blend down to 70.

    Seems to look very similar to the red label but with a touch of cinnamon

    actually left it in the fridge and "freeze" it and then opened it.
    So it is not as miserable as some rate it.
    If you are a beginner looking for something uncomplicated that should contain exotic fruits in the nose and taste, you can also grab it here - for a maximum of 25 euros, everyone has to decide for themselves.
    As an advanced beginner you will also find a new approach with the "cool" whiskey - it actually worked - it is more viscous on the tongue. I like this coconut and pineapple combo; it actually reminds me of a pina colada.
    For everyone else who is just chasing after barrel strength, you can avoid it.
    • Nose
      flowery, sweet, some coconut, light and ripe exotic fruits (pineapple, papaya).
      The coconut becomes more and more evident and the flowery switches into a sweetish perfume note.
      The fruits are accompanied by light peach and an unripe pear note.
    • Taste
      extremely soft, viscous on the tongue. A little spice comes gradually and brings some oak spice together with nutmeg and a little less cinnamon.
      he becomes drier in the mouth.
    • Finish
      he's gone pretty quickly. Except for a little spice and the coconut note, everything else evaporates quickly.

    Got two glasses, normal and frozen.
    One conclusion: I really don't get it why it's advertised as to put it in a freezer. Almost everything in nose and taste disappears.
    The normal one isn't that great either, but certainly much better. The rates are for the normal one, as the frozen one has nothing to rate actually.

      Got one glass on normal temperature, and one out of the freezer. The frozen one offers almost nothing, only some far away sweetness og vanilla and coconut.
      The normal one: floral, vanilla sweetness. Fresh sawn wood.
    • Taste
      79 79
      The normal one: fresh sawn wood again, pretty some pepper, vanilla sweetness, a bit floral.
      Frozen one: flat, watery, only some vanilla. A bit pepper but a lot weaker than the unfrozen one.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Normal one: smoother now, sweet again, vanilla. Not too long. Honey, some floral hints.
      Frozen one: sweet, smoother, short again.

    The main component is Cardhu and Clynelish. Recommended to drink straight from the freezer. Then it is very peppery and oily
    • Nose
      Pepper, spices, vanilla, caramel,
    • Taste
      Butter, peach, apple, vanilla, cinnamon, chili, cloves
    • Finish
      Vanilla, cereals, vanilla, toffee,

  7. schengel10 scored this whisky 64 points Connoisseur

    Great bottle - great marketing - great story - a whiskey without off-flavors, but at best a good average - a bit too expensive for that!
    • Nose
      very sweet, soft, mild, pear, vanilla, slightly bitter (grain note);
    • Taste
      sweet and creamy on the start, somewhat thin, cereals, oatmeal, muesli, vanilla, only a little wood / oak; obviously young and very straightforward;
    • Finish
      short and sweet and already gone;

  8. Malthead19 scored this whisky 64 points Expert Senior

    - Definitely different / better in smell and taste than the Red Label or the Song of ICE
    - the "only" 1.5% more seem to make a noticeable difference in complexity and intensity
    - but can not really convince
    • Nose
      Sweetness (honey, toffee), malty, a little oak, also a fruity component recognizable, yellow fruits
    • Taste
      malty-sweet appearance, oak is added and unfortunately also a noticeably bitter grain touch, the taste more present and powerful than the Red Label but unfortunately a little disappointing for the price
    • Finish
      medium-long malty finish;
      medium-long spicy, slightly burning aftertaste

    A nice gimmick, nice bottle. Syrupy from the freezer
    But cough drink or apfelkorn and not really much to do with whiskey.
