Cameron
Cameron,
Got it for $10 at Trader Joes. Really can't beat it for that price, just as good as a lot of your typical $30/$40 bottles. At $10 I wouldn't hesitate to buy again (who would?) but at this price would probably spend a little more and go with a nicer bottle.
 
Steven
Steven,
an ok blend. Nothing amazing, but nothing terrible either
 
Matt
Matt,
Smooth and best served chilled, if not frozen. It pours out like honey.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Not bad at all. Sweet with hints of apricot and honey. Very smooth and a medium fjnish
 
Darrell
Darrell,
I'm not a well-articulated reviewer but this was the smoothest scotch I've ever tried. Nothing dry about it. Like others say it's best served chilled and to me, it seemed to have a very slight minty effect to it.
 
JON
JON,
Interesting taste change with temperature change. You have to try it as cold as you can get it, then at room temp.
 
Steve
Steve,
OH, to fall in love with a drink destined to disappear... This is nothing like the JW Red or Black, which is probably why I like it so much. It really reminds me of a highland single malt. I've bought 3 bottles of this over the past year, and at this price I'd continue buying it forever. So I'm waiting for the stock to disappear before I have to find another budget priced gem.
 
Robert
Robert,
Normally I like scotch neat, but this chilled is really nice.
 
Ron
Ron,
You don't drink it without mixing. Made tons of White Walkers with it. Amazing. Make sure you keep it in the freezer.
 
Egan
Egan,
Very solid blended scotch. I honestly believe it is best served ice cold straight out of the freezer because you really get those nice notes of smoke, caramel, and toffee/butterscotch and it goes down much more smoothly. Adding drops of water seemed to bring out more of the oakiness. It’s also interesting how the flavors seem to shift from sweet and mellow to bold and woody the warmer the scotch gets but overall it makes for a good sipping experience, almost like trying a chilled wine. Great experience for the price!
 
George
George,
Flavor full ice cold sipper. Inexpensive and ready Easy to enjoy.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Tastes like Red Label mixed with something else in a fancy bottle that you pay extra for.
 
ISABEL
ISABEL,
Thank so much for being prompt & delivering on time!!! Very satisfied with your services.
 
Robert
Robert,
Could not drink it at room temperature. Put it in the freezer to chill and it came out quite a bit better. Thank you to Kurt for that suggestion.
 
Sujoy
Sujoy,
It’s Johnnie Walker. it’s a gimmick. Try it if the price is right but your money is better spent elsewhere.
 
Karen
Karen,
Very nice and great for sipping. Kept mine in the freezer, where I keep all of my brandy anyway. I like my alcohol ice cold without the ice to water it down.
 
Henry
Henry,
Classic Johnnie Walker. Solid blended blended scotch whisky and very drinkable. Interesting cold, but better at room temperature.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Was not expecting much, more of a novelty thing. Was actually pretty good straight out of the freezer.
 
Monica
Monica,
The bottle is neat looking and I'm planning on saving it. The whiskey itself was harsh and had too much of a bite. Don't plan on purchasing that one again.
 
Kurt
Kurt,
A good blended scotch, Great at the price, good for entertaining close friends. Best when cold to freezing..
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Really drinkable, and they're not kidding when they say keep it in the freezer. I really enjoyed this bottle. One star off because it was a tad sweet for my taste, but I would enjoy again.
 
Allen
Allen,
Black will always be a favorite...white was a bust. Tooooooo sweet...won't even serve to company... wasted good Texas $ on white trash!!! Not sure if I've been clear enough!!!! A. M. Fuller
 
Liam
Liam,
Very harsh bite but decent flavor, good go to
 
Cameron
Cameron,
Pass on this one for sure
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I’ve got this one sitting in my freezer. It’s great how the flavor changes and becomes smoother as the temperature rises.
 
Charles
Charles,
Not as smooth as I expected
 
Philip
Philip,
I liked it as a nice everyday whiskey. Smooth and sweet caramel taste.
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
It's not amazing..I'd repurchase as something to share with guests. What I did notice is because it is so smooth it is quite sneaky.
 
Alan
Alan,
Out of the freezer this is good way to finish the night off. It's not going to win any awards but something novel at throwaway price point
 
Philip
Philip,
nice and smooth. has a sweet taste, no after taste or bitter finish or burn.
 
Etienne
Etienne,
Its a descent blended Scotch. I find that the flavors are more noticeable when room temperature.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Decent addition to Game of a Thrones watching when pulled from the freezer, but that’s about it.
 
Joe
Joe,
Surprised at how good it was. I thought it was just a gimmick, but for the price, a decent scotch at a great value
 
Jerald
Jerald,
Very light and mellow in comparison to others in the JW line. Nice, but may not be for those seeking a great deal of complexity.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very spicy and woody tasting. Blood flavor may not appeal to all but I like it. I usually don't drink blended scotch but found it a good mix of flavor and drinkability.
 
Earl
Earl,
JW Green Label is my usual go-to for blended scotch, so my expectations may be out of line for this $25 bottle. The best thing about this JW offering is, unfortunately, the bottle itself. The contents of said bottle taste like a sweet-and-sour blend of second-hand near-vinegar, reminiscent of metallic Red Label (that is, if my dog had pissed menstrual blood into it).
 
Alex
Alex,
I’m not a big scotch drinker (more brandy or bourbon) and I really don’t like peat, so I actually really liked this scotch, for me it’s easy to drink. It’s at its best when left in the freezer for a day or 2.
 
Jim
Jim,
Meh - not great cold, not great with just a little water - I was disappointed after opening the bottle
 
Caylin
Caylin,
I have to let this actually warm up a bit to really get the fullness of the blend.
 
Xavier
Xavier,
Nice for doing cocktails. As a Black Label but more sweet and light. Easy to drink when coming from the fridge.
 
Nikki
Nikki,
Nice smooth blended scotch.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Keep it in the freezer Best blended Scotch wiskey
 
JEFFREY
JEFFREY,
Smooth, but not very distinctive
 
Daniel
Daniel,
New to the scotch scene. Not the best ever, not bad though.
 
Jamel
Jamel,
Taste smooth, I decided to had an ice cube instead of keeping it chilled.
 
Jamel
Jamel,
Johnnie Walker never lets you down. Great sipping whiskey on New Years. I’m going to buy another bottle. My friends were impressed.
 
Joe
Joe,
Surprised it was as good as it was. Not a bad pick for a gimmicky buy.
 
John
John,
Finishes a little metalic, pretty sweet too. Cool bottle affect.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Pleasantly spicy
 
James
James,
OMG!! I loved this! I initially bought this to make mixed drinks, because I thought Johnny Walker would make a really good whiskey for a TV series promo. How wrong was I? Extremely wrong! I tried a straight shot of it and was blown away on how smooth and wonderful it was to drink straight. Definitely recommend people to buy if there is any left in stores.
 
Dennis
Dennis,
I was absolutely pleasantly surprised by this Scotch. It was delightfully drinkable. yes, too many "ly's". we loved it
 
Joseph
Joseph,
This is just an absolutely great middle of the road scotch that tells friends it is time to celebrate one another far more than to compare notes about the discrete hints of aroma and flavor that come from a 20 year. This was out of sight!
 
Austin
Austin,
Tried this as my first scotch and lemme tell ya I was mixed on it. I am not a big scotch guy I found out but this is definitely a interesting option out there and the bottle alone demands respect and priceability.
 
James
James,
Best scotch I’ve ever had. Smooth, tasty, just a down right good drink . I drink it neat or two fingers with two ice cubes. Delicious
 
Dana
Dana,
It's spicy and goes down smooth since you have to freeze it. Flaviar's price is cheaper than Costco! Brilliant!
 
John
John,
Nice for a daily drinker, has the classic Johnnie Walker taste to it.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
Fine for the price. A little sweet for my tastes. Best super cold as the instructions recommend.
 
Terence
Terence,
Johnny Walker is a trusted and known brand. This bottle is no better than Red Label at a Black label price. The design is beautiful. Glad I bought one but not sure I'd buy another.
 
Rod
Rod,
Decent scotch which tastes much better on ice than neat. Hints of caramel and spice which are very subdued when neat but stronger as it gets colder.
 
Robert
Robert,
This drink was full of sweet aroma. The sugars and honey take over the other aromas. You can sense some other spice scent, but not much. The flavor is extremely sweet. I found this to be ok when room temperature, but when served chilled out of the freezer the best.
 
Gary
Gary,
Amazingly good for a low price.
 
Ethan
Ethan,
Definitely needs to be cold - even cold it tastes like cough syrup
 
Brandi
Brandi,
tasted fairly medicinal, not something I'm a fan of. For a walker, it wasn't bad, but it seems like it was supposed to be special and wasn't.
 
Sarah
Sarah,
Doesn't really taste like a Scotch. It actually is really sweet for a whiskey. The caramel and butterscotch flavors are very pronounced.
 
Harrison
Harrison,
As far as Walker is concerned, this is a 6. As far as whisky is concerned, this scotch has a unique flavor profile that should be experienced. Style points for bottle not included.
 
Chris
Chris,
I really liked this scotch. I of course bought it for the novelty because I’m a big fan of Game of thrones. It has a saying on the side of the bottle that showed up when frozen and this scotch is made to be frozen. Usually this takes away from the flavor but not this blend. Not only is it smooth and flavorful frozen, but it continues to evolve as it warms up giving each sip a new depth. I was really impressed with this and will be buying another bottle.
 
Bowen
Bowen,
Sweet, spicy, kinda weird. But I like game of thrones so I bought it.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
I found this whisky just Okay, nothing special to it at all for me. I'll try it cold like others suggest and maybe that will bring out more taste. I did not get the warm fuzzy feeling after drinking, or while drinking, this drink like I do with most other whiskeys.
 
Susie
Susie,
Smooth, no peat an easy lighter sip
 
James
James,
Very similar to jonnie walker black label but the addition of the game of thrones aspect was a nice touch
 
Melissa
Melissa,
Smooth, a little sweet. Nice warmth after taste. Perhaps not the absolute best whiskey I've ever had, but good on a hot night.
 
matthew
matthew,
There is a reason they say to drink this cold..... bottle is cool at least
 
William
William,
sipping. Use this for mixers, not for sippin.
 
William
William,
Would use this for mixers, not for sippin.
 
guest
guest,
Meh. Cool bottle.
 
KayDee
KayDee,
It’s a treat cold or room temp! It has some sweet caramel notes
 
Athanasios
Athanasios,
I mean it's decent, but it had to be bought for thrones.
 
WESLEY
WESLEY,
Absolutly trash
 
Brian
Brian,
I don't usually like scotch, but really enjoy this out of the freezer. Cool bottle. Glad I purchased a couple bottles.
 
David
David,
It was one unexpected flavor, Smoke vanilla spicy flavor great for friends and gatherings
 
Steve
Steve,
This is good version of Johnnie!! Plus big fan of the GOT show
 
WESLEY
WESLEY,
I would never get this again. Its flavor was just bad.
 
Robert
Robert,
First time trying a blend, it was smooth and very popular in my house, going to need another bottle.
 
Reggie
Reggie,
Very average. Cool bottle.
 
Jason
Jason,
I keep revisiting this hoping for more. Frozen is tolerable but super boring. Warm it has a bit of a burn at the end. Nothing really stands out except for the bottle wrap. Put in a couple thimble full of water and this is pleasant with the vanilla being pronounced, not a good representation of Scotch for this price point go for Glenffidich 12.
 
Jose
Jose,
It was like 5 when not in the freezer. Once it was frozen, it didn’t taste good at all. Overall sour taste is what I got from it.
 
Michele
Michele,
Love it...very forward on the vanilla and caramel. Deceptively sweet for a scotch. Not sure traditional scotch drinkers will like it...
 
Nycole
Nycole,
Did not enjoy.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Amazing! Smooth, palate pleasing whiskey for a great price....at Costco.
 
James
James,
Loved it everyone that tried it loved it very smooth
 
Rodrigo
Rodrigo,
Nice taste, when it warms up it changes.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Not as good as the black...
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Could be one of my Favorite Walker’s, what a surprise! Smooth, clean finish and nice notes. Winter is here
 
Miguel
Miguel,
Different. Keeping in the freezer for me is new.
 
Justin
Justin,
Closest to Red Label. Not bad, but not great. Add water and/or ice for this one for sure.
 
Jared
Jared,
The taste is amazing.
 
Joe
Joe,
Winter is here. I’m sipping this on the coldest night of the year, with temps (F) in the single digits! The whisky? Well, it’s unique. The packaging is lovely, if a bit gimmicky. The whisky itself is very reminiscent of a cognac; dried fruit and spices, but with a fairly heavy viscosity from the freezer. As it warms, it thins, and the character changes. Maybe more vanilla and less herbal. As many other smarter people have said, freezing this is probably the best way of enjoying it as it’s simply not that great otherwise. I’d put it somewhere between JW Red and Black. Overall, very glad I tried it, and I’m certainly enjoying it, but one bottle is enough, thanks.
 
William
William,
Nothing special, just a nice drinkable blend.
 
Randy
Randy,
I shared with some friends that are serious scotch drinkers and they all enjoyed it. Very smooth and is very appropriate for a winters night. I am buying more bottles.
 
Carl
Carl,
Too grainy. Not smooth. Similar to Red Label, and altogether a poor blend. Tasted at room temperature, though the bottle recommends freezing (not a good sign).
 
Brad
Brad,
Cool bottle, big GOT fan, not so great scotch. But oh well, will be pouring it when winter is here
 
Mike
Mike,
I did enjoy it. Not my favorite go to choice but it is good. I have one more Im saving for a special day with some friends.
 
Gloria
Gloria,
I loved it. Very smooth going down. Essences of oak.amber and a little sweet. I definitely recommend this. Thanks
 
Brian
Brian,
Smooth and cool bottle.
 
Michael
Michael,
This is the first blended I've ever had. Can't say I'm a fan of it.
 
Brian
Brian,
Blah
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Great designer label ,better than Red Label. I feel it is priced right and it looks good on the shelf. you could serve it at poker night with friends if they drink JW. rate it 6.5
 
guest
guest,
Red label- frozen.
 
Adam
Adam,
Love it, best served straight from the freezer, the flavor is sweet and evolved as it warms up. Great blend with a very unique bottle presentation.
 
Baylan
Baylan,
7.8
 
Bruno
Bruno,
Disappointing for a Walker. Clearly slapped a designer label on a JW Red to appeal to the broad, GoT audience. Bummed I spent so much on this one. Should’ve wait and splurged on a bottle of Talisker.
Jasson
Jasson,
This blend is unlike any of their bottlings (much sweeter). If you think it tastes like Red, you need your taster fixed :P Also, did you freeze it? It tastes wholly different frozen.
Norbert
Norbert,
Great bottle but I cannot say the same about the taste of this JW. I would say that it is better than Red Label but that's all the good stuff I can say about it.
 
Zack
Zack,
was not a fan the mixtures were not that great of a taste I did enjoy the bottle but definitely not a favorite at all
 
arthur
arthur,
I thought it was smooth and light much like the highland strain I all ready love.
 
Michael
Michael,
This is the first blended scotch I've had. I can't say that I enjoyed it much, but it may be that I have no point of reference. It wasn't awful.
 
Jon
Jon,
spice, sweet, smooth and little fire. I dig it
 
Matt
Matt,
Pretty spicy up front. Decent whiskey, but nothing special.
 
Bina
Bina,
smooth, great taste, does not loose flavor after sitting on ice.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Nice and cold
 
Alex
Alex,
Definitely impressive, You can taste the white walker...it feels cold going down, if you can believe that. Definitely a wonderful tribute one of the best shows to air on modern television...
 
Randi
Randi,
Quiet nice I was expecting more from it
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Easy sipping with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Better than Johnny Walker Black for sure!
 
Jasson
Jasson,
As a huge fan of the show, I had to buy this when I saw it. JW isn't my favorite, so I didn't expect it to blow me away - but it did. Freeze the bottle, and enjoy a unique expression that is nothing like their other labels. It is immensely tasty, very smooth, with a much sweeter body than the others. And the bottle is really cool!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Acetone, young grains and some light honey and malt... meh
 
David
David,
Good
 
guest
guest,
Taste like Fireball. Cool bottle is the extent of positives I can say.
 
arthur
arthur,
I found it different from what I thought it would be it had a highland taste I loved it
 
Craig
Craig,
Good, not great. Still has a bit of a bite when served ice cold.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Almost a liqueur when served cold. Abit harsh on the back yet enjoyable for a blended whisky
 
Brian
Brian,
Very drinkable, for a fun marketing bottle
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This is a solid offering from Johnnie Walker. As someone who typically drinks my whisky neat, I tried it that way and it had a bit of a bite, which isn't entirely a bad thing. Based on the label I threw it in the freezer. This smoothed it out substantially but when super cold it drank more like a grain scotch but as the glass warmed a bit the malts at the heart of the blend started coming through. Gimmicky, perhaps. My favorite, not by a long shot. Waste of money, definitely not. This is a bottle that any Johnnie lover should keep in the freezer to pull out as a conversation piece.
 
Carmine
Carmine,
I enjoyed it cold and as the bottle said it does present different flavors as it warms to room temp.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Tolerable at room temp, undrinkable when cold; JW is now officially the Coors Light of the whiskey world with this bottle's packaging.
 
Bryant
Bryant,
Worst whisky I own. Straight up lighter fluid
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Sweetest, smoothest Johnnie Walker I've ever drammed. Does not drink like a scotch, and definitely don't need to add water or ice! I froze it to see what happens to the Special Edition label on the bottle, and it made the tasting extremely cool and smooth. Definitely smell caramel and the taste was liquid honey. Maybe a little too sweet for some, but no lingering taste to speak of. Great scotch starter for an introduction to scotch, but may taste water down for the seasoned scotch drammer.
