Color
Deep copper
Nose

Sweet, vanilla, cinnamon, citrus fruit, tangerines, rye-ish, bananas, cloves and somewhat grain-like.

Taste

Firm, full, sweet, vanilla, cinnamon, some creamy fruit, bananas, wood, honey, pepper and again somewhat grainy.

Finish

Rye-ish, spices, citrus fruit, a little bitter note, oranges, medium length.

Comments

Tasted it head to head with the red rye finish. There were some similarities, but this one had the upperhand. Fuller and sweeter in the nose, more power in the taste.

Color
Burnished
Nose

White fruits (pears and lychee), acetone, green grain and oak, oranges, birch syrup, rye and vanilla

Taste

A touch of birch beer, first. Followed by butterscotch, oak, spiced rye and vanilla, and banana custard. 

Finish

Soft finish.  Sweet rye with faint allspice, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and still fainter walnut. 

Comments

I'm not a big rye whisky or Johnnie Walker fan, but this was surprisingly good. The smells and tastes are a bit hard to find, but if you want to they are there to be found. I'd seen and read reviews that mentioned the creamy mouthfeel, and I am happy to concur. One of the best Johnnie Walkers I've come across and a good bridge to rye whisky.

Nase: viel Vanille und typische Grain-/Bourbon-Süße, Karamell, pfeffrige Rye-Würze (auch etwas Kümmel), Lösungsmittel (hier nicht im negativen gemeint)

Der hat einiges vom Rye abbekommen - blind würde den wohl keiner einen Schotten tippen. 
Jetzt nicht sehr komplex aber ungemein lecker und aromatisch.

Geschmack: erst weich dann kommt eine starke Pfeffer-Schärfe, Brot mit viel Kümmel, Honig, verbranntes Karamell - im Abgang dann kurz und heftig Kaffee, bittere Eiche und noch mal ne ordentliche Portion Rye-Würze. Heftig aber kurz.

Heftiges und interessantes Teil. Der hat schon mehr zu bieten als der Red Rye Finish aber er ist nicht ganz so "süffig". Der Abgang von dem hier ist mir etwas zu heftig und aber auch zu kurz. Trotzdem ein toller Blend !

Nose

quite some sweetness with clear rye influence. Also reminds me of single grain whisky, including the typical glue nose. Vanilla and a bit of spices are present too.

Taste

Once again rather sweet, but now more spice notes than the nose gave away initially. some caramel notes and bread notes are present too

Finish

medium long, again mostly sweet. some spiciness mingles nicely with some oaken notes.

Comments

Normally not my favourite brand, but this expression is quite good :). Nice influence of the rye casks, without dominating the character of the whisky

I usually have a hard time with aromas.  Not this one-strong notes of caramel on the nose.  There is a slight hint of grain bitterness in the development, just a hint.  Medium finish with caramel and spice.  My first JW with a nice(46%) abv.  This can take a lot of water.  I glad that this is overlooked because I can hoard it at fantastic prices.
