Top reviews for Johnnie Walker Blue Label:

— Always good. Always the same solid flavor and smooth as can be.

— This is just a superb whisky. I don't know that I would say it's the best value out there as I'm just a simple working man but as a man that loves scotch, this could become a very expensive habit. This is everything that good blend should be. Just the perfect balance of malt and grain whisky with just a light hint of smokiness. I don't know what whiskys are used in blue but the peat is definitely less pronounced than the black and definitely the double black. Spend the $200 bucks to own this gem and savor every sip. My first dram was enjoyed neat and the next time I'll add a drop or two of spring water just to see how it opens up but man I'm in love!

— Love it! New favorite drink!

The smoothest and most expensive cardboard flavored whiskey ever...

Joseph,
One of my favorites for sitting with friends. I like to use ice stones to cool it down. smooth,smooth not to smokey.
 
Michael
Michael,
It was good, but not one I fell in love with.

Matt,
I'm not much of a Scotch drinker, so I'm not too surprised that I wasn't a fan.

An exceptionally smooth sipping whiskey.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
One of my favorites, easily. Johnnie Walker is known for their expertise in blends, and the Blue Label is a perfect showcase of that skill. Opens up slow and steady, and finishes smooth as can be, with a light smoke that lingers on the tongue. Always a fun bottle to pull out with guests -- not to flaunt it -- but to see their faces light up, knowing we're all in for some good drinkin'. Can't recommend this stuff enough. The only downside is the price, but it's worth every penny.

Too over powering and yet no one flavor stands out. below aferage finish.

I really enjoy taking my time with this Scotch! I really like all the flavors that you experience while drinking. One of my favorites!

Lane,
This was a birthday present from my GF, a pretty good blended scotch but not sure it was worth the price, I actually like JW gold better but it's not too bad.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Smoothest I have ever had. Love it!!
 
Robert
Robert,
I like the smooth and distinct taste of its flavors which is very nice during my drink time. There’s no harshness or strong after taste left on the pallet.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I typically like smokier scotches but this is so smooth I can't hate on it.
 
Steven

Only had it once but remember it being delicious.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a classic, balanced, Blended Scotch Whisky with a delicate birth, relaxed life that leads to a long & smooth death.
 
Maurice
Maurice,
My first scotch, spoiled... I guess. Anyway, one of my favorites, specially at duty free, and 2 for 1.

Delicious and amazingly smooth, but I'd much rather get several bottles of the gold for the same price.
 
Andy
Andy,
Really good, but not $250/bottle good.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
At first you feel some smoke, well controlled and not overwhelming, mixed with chocolate, vanilla and nuts. At taste a bit of honey and oak with a pleasant dark chocolate long finish.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Seemed a bit too Smokey

Awesomeness, period.

very good, but not as smooth as macallan rare cask

You can purchase at Costco for $149
 
Sean
Sean,
Decent but overpriced. I can get it in any store for $150 to $180. I have no idea how they are charging over $250 on here. Not the first time I’ve seen prices way out of order on here. Definitely not worth the money at their offering. Update it was $269 when I originally posted and now it’s down to $232? Still way over retail but why the $37 price drop? Was it something I said? Update 09FEB208: Now the price is down to $219. Quite the fluctuation in price on a standard item. Maybe I should make posts like this more often to benefit everyone.

William,
Extremely smooth and one of my absolute favourites. But I will say I like the Gold Label just as good!
 
Spencer
Spencer,
A very smooth scotch. My current favorite.

Premium scotch. Make friends with someone who has a bottle or save up for your own. This one doesn’t disappoint.

This has been perfected for years and the craftsmanship shows. It's one of the most refined bottles I have had the pleasure of owning.
 
Michael
Michael,
Love the smokiness and caramel notes
 
Jacob
Jacob,
I think this whiskey is overrated and overpriced. You can get better tasting American whiskey. However, for a scotch it is truly very smooth. Probably one of the smoothest I’ve had however not much taste compared to whistlepig for example

Muito bom, ótimo para finalizar o dia
 
Maxwell

Too. “Run of the mill” for the price.
 
Richard
Richard,
A little disappointed with the price so high. Was not a $200 value. Prefer the Glenlivet 15 and 18 over this any day. Better taste, better value.

Has that typical Johnnie walker taste. Good but not worth the money.

My favorite Scotch. Always have a bottle ready to crack open.

Very smooth and easy drinking scotch. An excellent blended scotch.

So very bland. If you like smoothness without any taste, this is the whisky for you.

Smooth and enjoyable.
 
Brian

To date this is my favorite scotch. Smooth and delicious.

smooth, wet, mildest of smoky fruit
 
Stephen
Stephen,
This is my favorite scotch. I have been drinking Johnnie Walker for years. I enjoy the smoky simplicity of it. The taste is consistent and smooth; good for a special occasion toast, and mellow enough to be a daily pre-dinner cocktail. Enjoy neat or on the rocks.

Trevor,
Beautifully complex. From nose to finish this bottle will make any whiskey drinker happy.

This is also very good and I would never turn it down if it was offered to me.
 
Bryce
Bryce,
What can ya say to blue label. It's a renowned blend and as we've heard on TV it's almost not worth drinking if your not drinking blue label. So does it live up to the hype and 200 dollar price tag? Well yes and no. Is it an amazing blend that balances the well known flavors of scotland. Well yes indeed it does. Can you taste the loving craftsmanship of the blender and sense that most of this blend is very old and we'll aged? Indeed. But is it as good as the hype and the price tag? Maybe but I would rather spend less on the gold or platinum labels. Blue is better, but not twice as good like the price would suggest. Definitely a delicious whiskey and a bottle that will be tucked away for quite peaceful evenings when I want something special.

Points for smoothness. The grey goose of scotch. Very smooth. No real flavor. Glad it wasn't my money ...

Sipped a bit of this at a best friends wedding. Delightfully smooth and peaty. One of the best things I have ever tasted.

Every taste testing I do JW always finishes top shelf. We have had five to seven very fine bottles of Scotch Wiskey and three to seven tasters and 10 out of 10 pick the JW Blue.
 
Henry
Henry,
Simply the smoothest and most flavorful Scotch available. Worth every cent for the unequaled quality you get. A truly civilized libation for the most demanding palates.

Pleasant nose but too medicinal on the taste. As blends go, spend a bit more and go for the Jameson Rarest as it's much more enjoyable.

My first taste of blended scotch, bought to celebrate the birth of my daughter. Great flavor real smooth. But I'm a purist love the single malts.
 
Kuljit
Kuljit,
Marketing is very well maintained and a nice drink to savour Over rated in my opinion. Try the XR 21 yr old. Much more depth and flavour
 
guest

Could be a great one except for: 40% ABV makes it anemic and the price tag makes it stupid.

Expensive for what you get

There is a reason it's so famous, it's a damn good whisky. Well balanced and so smooth.
