Johnnie Walker Blue Label Reviews
Producer's Tasting NotesNose: A mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a Johnnie Walker signature flavour) mixed with raisin sweetness.
Palate: The first sip reveals a velvety mouthfeel, then an explosion of flavour – hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.
Finish: A rich and uniquely long and satisfying finish of smoke and pepper, ending with a glorious touch of spice.
Tasting Notes by Tim F
Nose: Smooth, silky cereal, syrupy flapjacks, polished oak. Dessicated coconut, then other nutty notes: unsalted peanut, brazil nut.
Palate: A silky caress. Unexpectedly strong spicy entry, but always honeyed and rounded by some toasty oak. The honeyed malt is beautifully interwoven around the venerable grain, which must be absolutely ancient.
Finish: A perfectly-integrated slow fade of the palate. Mouthwatering grain, and the honey and spices dwindle slowly. Extremely long but still very gentle.
Comment: The daddy of premium blends divides fans as to whether or not it merits its price tag, but there is definitely something esoteric about the basically flawless balance on display here. Smoother than a hot-buttered, freshly-shaven diplomat in velvet trousers.

Best in the world in taking it neat! But now the problem is that my pockets are also neat.
I dipped my $30 Arturo Anejo Reserva Viejo No.77 Cigar in this wonderful blend and simply enjoyed this great blend for New Year''s Eve. This bottle began my journey into the wonderful world of Whisky and cannot thank it enough for turning me to a world of sheer class.
Just the smell has an explosion of different ingredients and exquisite flavors that can only be expected by Johnny Walker. Definitely the drink of choice for very special occasions. This is coming from a guy who prefers mostly rum! A true delight and amazing drink!
An absolute joy to drink. May spoil you forever. The Scotch against which all others will be judged.
Just got this from my sister for Christmas believe the hype. One word nector.
@William Evans says "promises much but thins out all too quickly with no lingering after taste". That is quite a good observation regarding it may thin out too quickly, but only noticed that remote lack of potential in the absence of a dash of water. Perhaps also when eating savoury snack at same time (of course a no-no). But regardless I don''t recall a lack of lingering. A bottle of blue should sit in every collection. If you are bordering whether you should splurge on buying your first bottle, all I can say is just do it. As someone else alludes to in these reviews; you only live once.
Blue Label without doubt the best! I open a bottle every Xmas day and I love the taste the smell and no hangover the next day! Pure class!!
I haven't had very many single malts, but of the ones I've tried, I haven't liked very many of them either. This is not only the best whiskey I've ever had, blended or otherwise, but it's the best drink I've ever had.
Can't believe am having my last glass of the Blue lable whisky it was truelly a pleasure & looking foward to more bottles in future
Probably the best Whisky in the world ..I had the privilege of tasting a few fine bottles but this my friends is truly amazing
