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.

    One of the best Johnnie Walkers in the range, very smooth and easy to drink.

    Very smooth and pleasant to drink.

    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.

    this is true johnnie walker class

    Very light. Soft, smooth honey notes.

  • 2 August 2012

    Very smooth and complex. Not much depth, but definitely with character. Not for peat heads, obviously.

    A little bit light but very pleasant and easy to drink whisky.
