Johnnie Walker is one of the most recognised Whisky brands in the World. It is also the best-selling Blended Scotch world-wide. The brand was established in 1860 by John "Johnnie" Walker, when he opened a grocery shop in Ayrshire, Scotland and started blending Whiskies in small amounts.

Success came with his son, Alexander, who established the Whisky as a popular brand — mostly during the Victorian times when it was heavily exported around the British Empire. Johnny Walker is known for its square-shaped bottle, the label which lays at an angle of 24 degrees and their logo — the famous walking man.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve replaced the Gold Label 18. It’s a multi-layered blend of the favorite Whiskies of Jim Beveridge, the master blender at Johnnie Walker. The Gold Label Reserve comes without an age statement.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

TERRENCE,
Not a huge fan of blended Scotch in general, but this one is very tasty. Plenty of caramel and vanilla sweetness without overpowering the palate.

Good, but lacks of flavors, too strong al the end.

Love it when frozen. Unlocks all the hidden flavors.
 
Matt
Matt,
One of the best JW Blends aside from the criminally overpriced Blue (which is still great in spite of the price.) Gold seems to blend younger whiskies in with older ones to give it a sharp but rich caramel nose. The palate is strong, woody, caramely and smooth. This has one of the longer finishes I've found in any JW whisky. As a whole, it's missing complexity, but IMO represents the best overall value in the JW lineup. Richer and more complex than Black, and maybe 3/4 as good as Blue at about 1/4 of the price. Perfect price to quality ratio.

This is a new acquisition which I find quite delightful. Very balanced between the Islay smokey and highland sweet.

Spice + smoke + mint - a nice combo!
 
Michael
Michael,
My go-to Scotch because it is uncomplicated smoothness with a hefty enough palate for me. For me, JW Blue is too far to the right (think "Heineken Light" and JW Black is unbalanced to the left (think "de-sweetened" molasses and licking an ashtray). If you don't like a lot of smoke or fruity variations you might stick to this like I do.

Smooth, drinkable, simple. I certainly wouldn't turn down a glass if it was on offer, but its not a thinker and doesn't do much to hold my interest.

Good but if you like Johnnie, save for money and get Black or save a little longer, splurge and buy Blue
 
Tom
Tom,
I prefer this over the platinum, but i like whisky that is a little sweeter. Still has depth and smoke and pepper that the platinum has, just not as smoke forward
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a classic, delicate, 18 Year Old Blended Whisky with a honeyed life, that leads to a long & soft death with a hint of spice!
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Sweet and smoky, smooth at palate with notes of honey, raisins and peppermint with a bit of earth. Medium-long aftertaste of vanilla and oak.

Slightly sweet, honeyed impression, bit waxy, apricot, peach and mango. Easy to drink
 
Bryce
Bryce,
This is a tasty dram. Very similar to black label but more refined. It's sweeter up front with more layers of flavor particularly has a taste of honey mid palate that differentiates it. Finishes a touch smoother but with a lighter overall smokiness. Hard to really define it but a more refined black label sums it up in my book. All in all yummy but not sure it's worth double the price of black label
