Johnnie Walker White Walker Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Butterscotch and toffee with lemon boiled sweets. Crunchy candy notes continue, with pear drops, barley sugar and travel sweets. Sweet cream develops.
Palate: Syrupy sweet, with the pear drops and barley sugar from the nose up front, with toffee and lemon behind. Darker notes of barrel char and spicy oak build.
Frozen: Hide the bottle in the freezer for a bit and you'll get a secret message on the label and a different whisky. It's thicker and richer, with a little bit less sweetness and the spice up front.
Finish: Short and sweet with butter and pear drops.
Comment: I'd call this a summer dram – pull it from the freezer on a hot day, and it'll definitely remind you that Winter is Coming.

This is a decent Scotch – very sweet wine nose to it. Taste is sweet and spicy. Finishes with a lemon sour bitterness.
Boring! Sorry guys but too much money for this whiskey... I am fan of Johnnie Walker, except Red of course, but this is horrible.
Cool bottle = marketing gimmick. What's in it? It's not scotch. On the nose it's ,,,,alcohol. In the mouth and down the drain...alcohol. There's no body, no flavor but there's the cool bottle. JW should be ashamed of this marketing ploy. I'll stick with Oban.
Frozen: Unpleasant nose, unimpressive palate, short finish... A shocker! Room temperature: Bouquet and taste improve but do not expect much. This dram remains a poor sipping exercise. Even the lowly Red Label is a far preferred choice. And an honest one. Shame on Diageo. This expression is but an unashamed marketing gimmick, created solely to capitalise on the GOT popularity.
It tastes like a sweeter Gold Label with lots more grain. Okay in a highball.
It is smoother than a standard Johnnie Walker, but it tends to sweetness, almost like a liquor, it will go well with a mixer, or as a digestive but not neat or on ice.
Tried this at an airport & was really smooth. Had many JW's but this has some good grain whisky in it. Bought a bottle tastes good when it is cold.
I bought 2 bottles, 1 to drink and 1 to sit on a shelf as I love the look of it. But that's a whisky, so lets talk about it and not the bottle. It's not the Black Label and it is not the Red Label, this is a completely new blend. That being said you can definitely expect something new but nothing really exciting. And now the most interesting part. It is recommended to drink it ice cold just out from the freezer and to be honest that is the best way to do it in my opinion. While cold you can smell sweet notes like caramel, toffee and green apple. Pallet is definitely fruity for me and finish is short and sweet as well. While warm I will say it is a bit more like Red Label which means it will be better to drink it with coke. I would say it is a great bottle to drink with friends who are not much into whisky and for someone who likes Johnnie Walker blends. Kudos for the bottle design!
Terrible....just a disgrace to the Johnnie Walker name, and that's saying a lot. Consider buying Red Label over this.
