Whisky Reviews for Johnnie Walker Gold Label

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.50 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Light and fruity, floral notes, some vanilla and some oak. Everything is very harmonious and round.
    Mouth: Amazingly tart and fresh, tingling, oak, fruits and spices. Finish: Rather short, fruits, vanilla, some pepper and oak.
    Conclusion: a good blend, but also expected unspectacular. The Grainanteil hides well and the oak is beautifully present. I think that's the way it should be. Exactly what you expect.

  2. Diedler did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    The best JW I had so far. It´s well desingned and verry drinkable. The Grain stay back most of the time and there is more to discover in this Blen than I expactet. 86 Points. I gues with 46% i would have rated it 2 Points or so higher.
    • Nose
      Fruity a little nutty with some floral notes, overripe mirabell. Sherry Cask influenced, sweet and well rounded. Not verry exciting but quite complex and for sure likeable
    • Taste
      initially sweet, then a hint of smoke says hello. Followed bay ripe fruits and spices with a little pepper and clove. Prickely on the thoung.
    • Finish
      Spice and fruit dominated. Becoming dryer and more bitter. There the Grain say´s hello the first time but not unplasent. Says goodby with sweet pepper. Medium log and yep, i like it :

  3. Shane_IL scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This was my favourite blend and among my favourite whiskies in general. 

    Very sad that that it has been replaced by an inferior blend (also tried platinum label, just not the same)
