A superior deluxe 18-year-old blended Scotch whisky made from an exclusive selection of 15 different aged whiskies. The blend delivers an exceptionally smooth taste together with a richness of character and lasting finish.
Nose: More perfumed and floral than the Blue Label; candy sweet rather than syrupy. Some very appealing oily and toasty notes.
Palate: Spices, delicious oak, sponge cake, cereal, honey, syrup, ginger and dried orange peel. In a word, delicious.
Finish: An elegant dance of the above, with some delicious pepper and spice notes and hints of mixed peel.
Comment: This pretty much epitomises everything that blend-lovers love about blends: Quality, Harmony, Complexity, Grace. Beautiful.

No Complaints with the black, the green is not very smooth, the gold is AMAZING! So smooth, so much flavor, smoky, I didn't want to swallow, never had the blue.

I am basically a bourbon drinker but Johnnie Walker Gold is superb. It has a certain sophistication to it that can't be described. Take a sip and don't swallow for a long time. Let it envelop the tongue...WOW. And the finish, indescribable. This stuff is something special.

As a single malt drinker, I like this as a change, straight from the freezer, syrupy, ice cold, I'm sold!!

This is my favorite JW, more consistent and refined than the Black, richer than the Green, and a lot more affordable than the Blue.

Very elegant blend. Probably my favourite of the JW stable.

Apart from the Red, all the JW whiskies are lovely in their own right. For me, the Blue is lovely, but over-priced. Green is OK (not my style), the Black is (for me) one of the best blended whiskies I've had at such a low price. The Gold is gorgeous - very smooth and honey'd.If you like JW whiskies, you HAVE to watch this video on their website. By the end of it, you'll be wanting a dram!http://www.johnniewalker.com/global/walkthewalk/

This stuff is nice, had it once. I'd say it's a chick whisky. EASY to drink, tastes honeyed and sweet though not syrupy. Though it tastes expensive, elegant, I felt ripped off. Too sweet. I'm sold on the Green Label.

I prefer this one to blue every time! Save your money and drink this one, you won't be upset.

Both the Blue and Gold are fantastic but if funds are tight go with the gold.
