Nose

Sanft, Zitronenschale, Vanille, Meeresbrise,  Eiche, etwas Süße, zarter Rauch, Pfirsich

Taste

leicht prickelnd, Vanillepudding, weiße Pfirsich, etwas Eiche, Blütenhonig

Finish

Mittellang, ölig, kurzer Chili-Catch, wird trocken, ein Hauch von Rauch

Comments

Der Green Label besitzt Komplexität und Raffinesse, Preis/Leistung passt. Für mich steht er einem Springbank 10 nicht sonderlich viel nach, daher kann ich ihn empfehlen.

Nose

Grünes Gras, Vanille, Melone, leichte Pfeffrigkeit, verhaltener Rauch und leichte Süße 

Taste

Pfeffrig, malzig  und süß, Vanille, Apfel, Getreide und Rauch. Recht trocken im Mund. Nach einer Weile kommt etwas Eiche mit dunkler Schokolade. 

Finish

Mittellang, trocken, Eiche und dunkle Schokolade. Die pfeffrige Schärfe hält eine ganze Weile an 

Comments

Es ist ein characktervoller 15-jähriger mit einem anständigen Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.

Nose

Smoky jaffa cakes. Bit of a honeyed malt character. Woodspice, cloves and nutmeg. Light, creamy vanilla. Peach cobbler.

Taste

Dry grass. Brush fire. Sour malt. Bitter wood. Honey. Very dry wood tannins. Generic candy note right at the end.

Finish

Medium. Bitter malt. Dry wood and light wood smoke.

Comments

I can’t remember the older version well enough to be able to make a good comparison (that’s part of the reason why I started taking tasting notes), but I really did enjoy this one. It didn’t have a huge range of flavours, but the ones it had were quite nice. There was quite a nice mix of sweet, savoury and smoky to it. For the normal retail price it’s quite a good buy.

Nose

Apricot, apple, vanilla and pastry. I have to admit that it has a nice nose for a blend.

Taste

More smoky. Apple, vanilla, malt, caramel and spice.

Finish

Now the peat is really most dominant. Dry, nutty. Not that fruity anymore, only some apple.

Comments

Whisky fans are generally not very positive about Johnnie Walker, but I have to say that I've always found the Green Label a decent whisky and it still is.

Nose

Leicht phenolischer Rauch. Hinter dem leicht bis mittelstarkem Rauch finde ich als erstes eine süßliche Honignote. Mit etwas Zeit im Glas macht der Kollege etwas auf und gibt Vanille, Apfel und Pfefferminz frei. Ein wenig Eichenwürze find ich noch.

Taste

Würziger Antritt. Zitrusnoten bringen eine gewisse Säure mit. Bitter werdend. Jetzt erst kommen dezent die Fruchtnoten von Apfel und vielleicht Aprikose. Und ne dreckige Fuhre Rauch, die erst im Nachhinein auftaucht.

Finish

Mittellang mit ner Espressobitterkeit

N- While the familiar charred malts and cheesy note are still there with the whiff of smokes. This is much earthier compare to previous batch.

T- Fruity cherry, layers of wood shavings, solid mouthfeel but still gentle on the palate.

F- Short, smooth entry with prickly charred noted emerged, frizzy and woods lingers.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
