Customer Rating

Johnnie Walker Gold Label was relaunched in 2012. Built around a core of single malt whisky from Clynelish, the Gold Label Reserve is a great addition to the line-up from master blender Jim Beveridge.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Edinburgh Whisky Blog

    Nose: Honeyed oats, malty with creamy vanilla, toffee popcorn and a touch of gingerbread. A herby note punches through. Really pleasant.

    Palate: Sweet, smooth caramel fudge. Butterscotch. Quite waxy with honey and vanilla coming in waves.

    Finish: This finishes more on the heavier side of things with sticky fruits (maybe a bit of trifle?) and faint woodsmoke.

    Overall: A really well balanced blend from the House of Johnnie Walker. Something to crack open with friends on a summer’s evening and pass around whilst the sun goes down.

  • Tasting Notes by Caskstrength

    Nose: Fudge notes, drying sherry, dried prunes, vanilla and heather honey. Water brings notes of classic light Walker smoke and candied fruit. So far, so good.

    Palate: Initially very light, with vanilla and waxy honey (the influence of Clynelish is still really apparent.) Given time, the blend really begins to open up with a distinct smokiness and a slightly thin grainy note. With water, the grains show themselves a little more, followed by sliced apple and more of the Clynelish waxiness.

    Finish: Lingering smokiness and a touch of dried fruit.

  • Producer's Notes

    Nose: Honey, vanilla cream, sherry-style dried fruits and notes of biscuits.

    Palate: Luxuriously smooth, creamy and delicately honeyed with lingering waves of wood, fruit and light, sweet smoke. A multi-layered blend of sweet fruits and creaminess that evokes deeper honey tones.

    Finish: Lingering waves of wood and light west-coast smoke.

    Thin and watery - definitely not my favourite. Lacks character.

    This is the perfect whisky for mixing amazing cocktails, the caramel popcorn notes go great with Maple syrup and a pinch of butter and salt.

    I really like the Gold Reserve but its ruined my taste for JW Black Label and similar whiskies like Chivas. Its much smoother, refined and delicious on the rocks.
