Johnnie Walker Blue Label Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: A mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a Johnnie Walker signature flavour) mixed with raisin sweetness.

    Palate: The first sip reveals a velvety mouthfeel, then an explosion of flavour – hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.

    Finish: A rich and uniquely long and satisfying finish of smoke and pepper, ending with a glorious touch of spice.

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    Nose: Smooth, silky cereal, syrupy flapjacks, polished oak. Dessicated coconut, then other nutty notes: unsalted peanut, brazil nut.

    Palate: A silky caress. Unexpectedly strong spicy entry, but always honeyed and rounded by some toasty oak. The honeyed malt is beautifully interwoven around the venerable grain, which must be absolutely ancient.

    Finish: A perfectly-integrated slow fade of the palate. Mouthwatering grain, and the honey and spices dwindle slowly. Extremely long but still very gentle.

    Comment: The daddy of premium blends divides fans as to whether or not it merits its price tag, but there is definitely something esoteric about the basically flawless balance on display here. Smoother than a hot-buttered, freshly-shaven diplomat in velvet trousers.

    I'm a nomad in the word of whisky's, as in, I'll try an alternative brand each and every time I buy. I'll purchase all different price ranges from cheap to expensive and I've come across some damn nice whisky's and some not so nice. The whole point of my previous statement is that only one of these whisky's I'll buy time and time again and it's 'Johnnie Walker Blue Label' it's so damn nice from the start to finish. The advert has it to a tee! Palate: A silky caress. Unexpectedly strong spicy entry, but always honeyed and rounded by some toasty oak. The honeyed malt is beautifully interwoven around the venerable grain, which must be absolutely ancient. Finish: A perfectly-integrated slow fade of the palate. Mouthwatering grain, and the honey and spices dwindle slowly. Extremely long but still very gentle.

    Smooth sweet aromatic. Breathe it before taking your first sip. Love it. The warm and velvety feeling remain lingering at the back of the throat was so comforting.

    I had this as part of a taster pack many years ago (15?). It had the 18yo gold, the green and black as well. Have to say I definitely preferred the gold and had this on a par with the black which is an excellent blend that we all know very well. However, at this price point the blue represents very poor value. Honestly, I'd go for a Jameson 12yo over this every time.

    Far from being an expert, Blue Label is a very good whisky, tastes like a refined high quality single malt, however, for this price, I think that there are cheaper complex and delicious alternatives, such as Buchanan’s 18 (but this is relative, just my opinion). But, if you can afford it, is a whisky that must be savoured time to time. Very good Whisky. ?Different but also very good, enjoy responsibly :-) ?

    I purchased my first bottle in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. Accustomed to the smoothness of the Johnnie Walker Black, I realized I was in another caliber of drinking experience. Nose: Mellow smokiness with hints of leather, fruit and spice. Color: Amber Arrival: First with fruity burst of flavor, nuts, and citrus. Taste: Leathery notes of oak followed by a rise of a mixture of spices and pepper. Finish: Subtle notes of smoke, spice and honey.

    Have been recommended to drink with a glass of iced water rather than a dash of water. For me this is the best there is!

    Not a fan. I bought this on a whim, having never tasted it before, but much prefer the premium irish whiskeys.

    I dipped my $30 Arturo Anejo Reserva Viejo No.77 Cigar in this wonderful blend and simply enjoyed this great blend for New Year''s Eve. This bottle began my journey into the wonderful world of Whisky and cannot thank it enough for turning me to a world of sheer class.

    Just the smell has an explosion of different ingredients and exquisite flavors that can only be expected by Johnny Walker. Definitely the drink of choice for very special occasions. This is coming from a guy who prefers mostly rum! A true delight and amazing drink!

    @William Evans says "promises much but thins out all too quickly with no lingering after taste". That is quite a good observation regarding it may thin out too quickly, but only noticed that remote lack of potential in the absence of a dash of water. Perhaps also when eating savoury snack at same time (of course a no-no). But regardless I don''t recall a lack of lingering. A bottle of blue should sit in every collection. If you are bordering whether you should splurge on buying your first bottle, all I can say is just do it. As someone else alludes to in these reviews; you only live once.
