Customer Rating
Originally introduced solely into travel retail, the Platinum Label (the first new 'colour' to be introduced into the Johnnie Walker range for years) has now made it out into the wider world. It's a rich and refined blend of whiskies matured for at least 18 years that slips perfectly into the range just behind the iconic Blue Label.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Sweet and floral, light vanilla custard, sweet pineapple, candied lemons, honeysuckle, sweet pastry.

    Palate: More pastry up front, lightly briney, sweet citrus and a buttery vanilla cream middle with some lightly smoky malt.

    Finish: Light, sweet flowers, lingering green wood

  • Tasting Notes by Edinburgh Whisky Blog

    Nose: Fruity, zesty and aromatic. A classy, delicate nose that reminds me of a nice chilled Sauvignon Blanc or Torrontés. Slightly oily, too.

    Palate: Juicy, a little waxy and a tiny bit of spice. This is a superb whisky. The sign of a great blend is that it is the sum of all its parts. You don’t taste any individual whisky, more like a fantastic recipe. This blend is seamless.

  • Tasting Notes by Caskstrength.net

    Nose: Streuth. This is really good, straight off the bat. Rich spiced notes, mix with plum pudding, stewed rhubarb, cherry compote and aromatic cedar woodsmoke. Superbly balanced. The vanillas start to creep in on the fruit given a little time in the glass and notes of orange oil grab your attention.
     
    Palate: Very oily and thick on the palate. heavily fragranced, with baked oranges, subtle notes of caramel shortcake, orange sherbet and gentle smoke. With water, cereal notes develop, with cherry jam and fudge.
     
    Finish: More stewed fruit, with a lingering note of the wonderfully aromatic smoke.

     

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Palate: A strong sweet and elegant Speyside style. It has a rich, dark and intense flavour that rewards those who take the time to savour it.

    Stewed fruit, malty cereal, smooth creamy vanilla, fragrant almonds and tangerines give Johnnie Walker Platinum Label its waxy, fruity and sweet taste mixed with slight drying astringency with subtle smokiness.

    I love the sweet aftertaste that stays in your mouth for a little while longer. So far I think this is actually my favourite out of the Johnnie Walker lineup.

    Tastes like gasoline. One of the worst JW products in their line. The only good thing about this particular label, is that the local price of gold label is lowered because of it.

    Quite a marvelous Blended Scotch. I really did enjoy the fruity flavours, with the slight hint of cinnamon mixed in with flavours of honey, and caramel. The honey, fruit, and Caramel really took hold, but then the cinnamon comes through. I quite enjoyed it. Very smooth also. May be the best i've had of the Johnnie Walker labels. Blue, Gold, Black, and Red all included.

    Excellent dram, beautiful flavor and aroma. I could drink this all day. As with any whiskey or scotch hold it in your mouth for a while, to truly enjoy the flavors

    My father enjoyed his 50th birthday present. Great value for money and excellent service! Thanks

    In addition to my previous review, here are some tasting notes. Nose is very closed at first. Notes of strong alcohol and a malty caramel aroma is dominant. Even after letting it sit and breath in the glass, this dram refuses to open up. Palate is one dimensional: nothing but malty caramel taste and awkward alcohol, not allowing any of the spices pull through. There is nothing memorable? or? distinctive about this whisky. It is not smooth either. Major disappointment.

    Absolute disappointment. I have been drinking JW whiskies on occasions over the past 20+ years. My high expectations from this dram were completely trashed by the overly smokey nose and palate, which is the definitive sign of how JW messed up this time, killing every bit of otherwise would be enjoyable aromas on both nose and palate. I am sorry I have to say this but JW Platinum is the worst of the JW series, especially when it comes to price-quality ratio.
