Whisky Reviews for Johnnie Walker Platinum Label

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.40 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, ripe fruit, caramel, cinnamon. It looks like a single malt. On the palate, nice dose of spices, beautiful body. Definitely, it's done! The alliance of maturity and sweetness. The finish disappears a little fast (and thus betrays the presence of grain) but gently and a touch of wood and coffee.
    Enthusiasm 3/5

    Bottle polishing:

    N: Apple malt, pineapple citrus, light & soft candy, floral honey>wood planks and a gentle foot hold of peat. Later, sweet and delectable fruit juice [blood orange & wild strawberry], encapsulated within a slightly metallic easter egg chocolate casing.
    T: Quite the non-event at first if only somewhat soft=sharp, then a little dull and nondescript - but wait. Some oaky peat is then immediately evident before notes of malty [cheapish] cocoa=chocolate, grey wrapping paper, a little glue, parsley and old sawdust. It then thickens, quickly becoming a classic JW signature blend.
    F: Soft spirity waxy chocolate=paper mulch with soft yet clear ground pepper on the tip of the tongue. Surprisingly long lasting finish.
    C: This whisky was far tastier when first opened, and the presence faded significantly after being decanted. The quality [not the length] of the finish was particularly effected yet the nose lives on. Designed for enthusiasts on the move perhaps? Pretty decent clobber that today loses a mark in the endurance test.Scores a C[+]

    [December, 2013]  I found this dram in a commercial advents calendar.  In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  I
    took no detailed notes and never bought a commercial advents calender
    again.

    We couldn’t avoid a blend by Diageo now could we. First introduced in 2011 at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, the JW Platinum 18yo was launched internationally via travel retail in 2012. The latest relaunch [Mar ’17], now sees it available in general stores and retailers globally. The Platinum Label is the most recent addition to Diageo's Johnnie Walker blended ‘colour’ range. Unlike Macallan however, it’s got a colour and an age statement. Created by master blender Dr Jim Beveridge WM, it’s made of ‘up to’ 18 different whiskies including Cardhu, Glen Elgin and Auchroisk in the main, Blair Athol and aged island malts. We should get excited by these aged blends, they are an historical trip round Scotland in a bottle, with this one retailing at around £69 [Apr ’17].
    N: A fruity & yeasty malt with nicely integrated yet clearly defined smoke - blended malted barley personified.
    T: It does tighten up initially, taking a while to loosen up. Now i know the main emphasis, the heart of this blend if you like is it’s Speyside malts yet it’s the Island malt[s] that has/have captured my attention today. This is so very Talisker-esque in it's smokiness and sweet-savoury maltiness, and far better than my current Talisker 18 that’s for sure [I’m really struggling with a 2016 batch].
    F: Longest finish of the night and the first with a noteworthy mouthfeel. More peated-smoked barley with more Talisker character-style heather and dry vanilla all the way to the end.
    C: New & re-launched whisky tends to be of higher quality whilst the customer base is being established, and this is really good gear. I may even join that customer base and buy a bottle. It would really benefit from an abv hike though. It rather died in the glass after an hour - but then i guess it's not necessarily intended for long periods of sipping, though there’s plenty to glean given all those components and all them years. A super blend for drinking and sipping and for getting trashed on. Best of the night for me, equal to the Dewar’s. Blog.

    I shouldn't like this, right.  I mean, it's owned by a huge corporation that cares more about profits then...yeah, yeah, I know.  It's just that it works on some level-the arrival.  It's that arrival that makes me want one more sip.  That arrival of sweet-sour-bitterness. The price...is it worth it?

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Reminds me of pomero and grapefruit and Arran Millennium Cask. Soft
    cocoa and honey, very soft, steady and balance. Hints of ashes.

    Palate:- Silky and mellow a plus attribute, lightly dust with citrus and vanilla. Finish:- Overall experience capped with almost spotless finishing. Is
    almost like drinking lightly infused spice water. Medium length.

    Very gentle, but too gentle and lack the excitement. I will call her a Very Boring Pretty Lady.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Not worth the money .
    • Nose
      I get very little to be honest, a little honey, apple and a touch of vanilla.

      Leave it a while in the glass and it does improve.
    • Taste
      Oaky mixed in with a sherbet sweetness, vanilla, biscuit
    • Finish
      Short, with a bitter finish
