Ratings & Reviews
Member Reviews and Ratings of Johnnie Walker Red Label
Brian
Brian,
this scotch is fine; however I prefer my glenlevit
 
Diane
Diane,
Good ever day blend, little smokier than other less expensive blends
 
Rafael
Rafael,
Consistent and easy-going blend. Perfect with sparkling water.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Appearance: Color is amber, decent legs... Nose: Mild peat, Malted barley, cream, vanilla. Nothing offensive, but offensively muted. Needs to either bring the peat more or have other notes... Palate: Dry smoke on front of palate. Very trace bright fruit note. Midpalate is vanilla malt with some sweetness... Mouthfeel: Average... Finish: Faint linger of dry smoke and peat spice... Overall: Definitely not bad for the price, but also priced where it is for a reason.
 
Dmytro
Dmytro,
To smoky. Maybe with cola?
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Adequate for occasions I don't deem special. Because of the price, I don't feel the need to save it, but it's the only scotch I don't drink neat if that tells you anything.
 
Matt
Matt,
Classic good value blend, slightly smoky but bitter aftertaste. A relatively smooth blend.
 
Robert
Robert,
Not fan on the rocks. Only way I've found that I like it is with ginger ale and lemon juice.
 
guest
guest,
I think this is one of the most under appreciated whiskies out there. You like cheap smoky scotch? Take Red Label. Neat may not suit your tastes, but taking it with a large ball of ice does wonders.
 
Kshitij
Kshitij,
Love it as a mixer. I enjoy the lingering smoky notes at the end.
 
Leon
Leon,
It’s...ok I guess
 
guest
guest,
Cheap for a reason. Not terrible but not great. Keep a bottle on hand for the old Uncles that come over and want a scotch soda.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Smoky scotch that's fine for mixing. My recommendation would be to pass on the red label and upgrade to the black if you want to stay in the JW line.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Cheap scotch - not for sipping.
 
Jessica
Jessica,
A bit on the extremely smokey side for my liking.
 
Huy
Huy,
A cheap whisky
 
Alex
Alex,
It's a great mixing scotch goes with some mineral water and a large cube of ice.
 
Josef

Standard
 
Michael
Michael,
Get what you pay for, cheap but available scotch. Should choose black label over this
 
Tharon
Tharon,
This is my go-to, everyday, affordable scotch. It's not Lagavulin, but it doesn't cost as much either.
 
Michael
Michael,
A bit rough, but enjoyed it on the rocks
 
guest
guest,
Pretty mild comparatively and honestly prob one if my more preferred labeled of the blend JWs.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Smokey, tannin, fruit, medium finish
 
guest
guest,
Harsh to drink and be prepared for hangover
 
David
David,
Alright. Not really great for sipping
 
Blake
Blake,
Almost unable to drink on it's own, mostly followed it with cranberry juice and was thankful when it was gone (whisky is still whisky at the end of the day)
 
James
James,
Harsh on the initial taste but has a lot of flavor. Not as smooth as others in the Johnny line.
 
Paul
Paul,
Decent for a daily drink. Good value.
 
guest
guest,
Wasn’t expecting much, but I actually enjoyed it. Not as good as JW Black but I’d definitely drink it again. Nice change of pace
 
Noelle
Noelle,
I have always enjoyed Johnny Walker Red. There is a reason it is one of the most popularly selling blended scotches. This one will not be the best you've ever had, but it's not supposed to be. It's affordable for those that like to have a bottle with less rationing on the mind. I find this nice and try with pleasant notes of sawdust.
 
Charles
Charles,
Good for drinking if you're drinking to get drunk.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
great mixing scotch. lots of complexity but not too much "smoke" to turn off those new to scotch.
 
Vinicius
Vinicius,
Fun to mix into cocktails, one of the first whiskies I had as a young man
 
Evan
Evan,
This isn’t a great scotch but it’s better than I expected. The smoky flavor then fruit flavor is appealing but the finish is weak/non-existent.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I know everyone thinks of this as the low brow scotch that should be used only for mixed drinks, but for a very affordable everyday scotch, I enjoy it. It’s reliable and tasty to me. For special occasions I prefer the much nicer stuff though.
 
Gary
Gary,
Intended to be mixed in cocktails. That's about all it is good for.
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Entry level, just above a status of mixed drink only use. All Johnnie has the same base flavor of spice and some honey. Long spicy finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
Ew...maybe mix it
 
guest
guest,
Not very good. Very bitter
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Its what you keep in the car for when you run out of gas.
 
Gary
Gary,
Like drinking soggy lumber. Just awful.
 
Dmitriy
Dmitriy,
Excellent budget scotch if you like a peaty smokey taste. Great as a sipping drink and tastes much better than many pricier scotch whiskeys.
 
Gage
Gage,
Not a fan like red food coloring in water
 
Owen
Owen,
Not super fancy but if your in a mood it keeps you from drinking all of your good stuff
 
Zachery
Zachery,
good for scotch and sodas
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Meh.
 
Lance
Lance,
Good, but on the dull side.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Not a smooth as i was expecting.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Ok but not a favorite
 
Carmine
Carmine,
Wasn’t a fan. I could even finish a glass.... it was gutter trash
 
guest
guest,
Recht guter Standard Whisksy mit genau jener gaanz leicht torfigen Note die ich mag 08/18 - Jasper
 
guest
guest,
A lot of alcohol for the money but lacking in taste and quality
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Comes off with a metallic taste on its own. Better if mixed in cocktails.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
My go-to if I need something cheap, yet satisfying to mix with coke.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Mixer, have also used for cooking-both for flavoring food and a little something for me at the same time...
 
BRIAN
BRIAN,
I really enjoy this one. It's smooth. Great on the rocks or off.
 
christian
christian,
A lil bit of smoke-peaty, tangerine and apple. Smells really sweety ( brown sugar)
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Perfect for cocktails or mixing
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Not pleasant to drink.
 
Jason
Jason,
Bleh. I thought, "maybe its like a cheap version of the black." I'll be saving this one for guests. Lol.
 
Al

My everyday
 
Matthew
Matthew,
My go to scotch.
 
Ty
Ty,
Red Label is not meant for drinking neat, but there is nothing better as a mixer. Red Label and ginger ale, sprite, or 7up is phenomenal. It will also make excellent cocktails. It does what’s its supposed to do very well.
 
Nathaniel
Nathaniel,
good but spicy bitterness on the finish that lingers
 
Angie
Angie,
Disliked it. Too petey.
 
Tristan
Tristan,
Smells cheap and tastes cheap. Just get JW Black Label.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
A pretty great whiskey to get started with. Has a touch of smoke/ peat. Reminds me of tequila
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Just rough. Not much else to say.
 
Viet
Viet,
Better for washing wounds.
 
Kim
Kim,
Utterly disgusting. I’ve tasted liquor made in somebodys bathroom that tastes better than this.
 
Sean
Sean,
A decent Scotch, more oak than sweet.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
It's a fine, smooth, peat free scotch.
 
Doug
Doug,
This is good when friends come over and we are just chillin
 
Mariano
Mariano,
It is nice...with chocolate ice cream for a Don Pedro.
 
guest

Erg simpel, weinig body. Misschien om te mixen
 
guest
guest,
No match against the black. I can't imagine you prefer to have two bottles of these above one black. And even if you do not want to pay more than € 20, there's better on the market!

Good for mixing with coke, not much more.

One of my go to when I was in Beijing.

Good in a pinch!
 
guest
guest,
It took me 20years to get halfway through a bottle... So only drink it in a mix, or share it with people you do not really appreciate ;)
 
Josh
Josh,
A bit of funk on the nose that I don't appreciate but others might.

Gasoline for mixing only
 
Denis
Denis,
Быстроиграющий. В нём как бы всё есть, но быстро проходит. Послевкусия почти никакого. Больше для пьянок, чем для смакования. С колой, наверное, самое то.

Voor in de mix met ginger ale
