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.

gold is the best
- anonymous, 12th June
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.

as a whiskey man i belive that its taste it is not so good as i expected for me the best of jw collection is the blue and the black

Both the Blue and Gold are fantastic but if funds are tight go with the gold.
- Mikey, 2nd Dec '09
Go to the JW site and you will see the 'mixed to perfection' tab, click on it to see how you can drink gold label, one of them being what sh0ck-wave said. No doubt Gold Label is an Upper-Class Whisky

The Best Johnnie Walker.
- Matthew, 20th Jun '09
I quite like this one. Luxurious taste and finish. Interesting drinking technique for the JW 18 given to me from the .au importer : Put the bottle in the freezer for a good few hours, then serve with dark chocolate. Trust me I'm as confuzed as you are, but it does taste quite good :)
