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.

    Slightly better than a generic blend, not as good as a single malt. Nose: Pineapple...yawn, pineapple reeks of young whisky. The mouth is nice and full of fresh mango and juicy fruit...then it all suddenly collapses... About the same level as Ballatines finest...which at this price point means JW Gold Reserve is a total rip off. Buy Ballatines Finest instead. Get the same whisky for less money.

    I loved it. Some of my favorites are Glenmorangie 10, Oban, and Macallan 12 and it ranked right up there.

    Horrible. Very grainy. Similar to say famous grouse or bells. Not a patch on green label, or even black.

    light but very pleasant and easy to drink whisky.

    @ Rico: What you've said is partly true. The 18 year old age statement has been retired, it's now only available as shown here. The NAS whisky should be ongoing for some time.

    @ TWE Admins: Is this true that the JW Gold label is to share fate with the Green Label, ie. to be discontinued?

    Ordered this a few weeks ago now and was looking forward to trying it seeing as it's a step above from Black Label. Like others have said it's light and lacks depth & complexity. I somehow get the feeling that this Label is aimed more at the Far East/Asia market with it being very palatable and easy to drink.
