Top reviews for Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve:
— super smooth with a hint of peat not too sweet
— 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 Drink Enjoy the Hint of Spice
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.
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.
Smooth with a nice smoke.
This is a new acquisition which I find quite delightful. Very balanced between the Islay smokey and highland sweet.
Great sweet and smoky scotch.
A very good bottle
i liked it very much
Smooth but not much flavor
I think I'll stick to my black label!
Love it! Great taste, Incredibly smooth
I love it
Spice + smoke + mint - a nice combo!

I like the smell and to smoke
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.
Very pleasant taste.
New go to. Fruit with Smokey finish.
I found this blend very enjoyable and a nice addition to my collection.
My favorite of all the Walkers
Good but if you like Johnnie, save for money and get Black or save a little longer, splurge and buy Blue
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
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!
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.
Not a big fan of the taste
Slightly sweet, honeyed impression, bit waxy, apricot, peach and mango. Easy to drink
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
For me this is a fantastic drink, and great value for money. Definitely my go to whiskey.
Superior to Blue Label and at a better price point! What's not to like?
