Johnnie Walker Blue Label Reviews
Producer's Tasting NotesNose: 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 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.
Simply Sublime... This is the reference super-premium, against which you measure all others.
Over rated and not all that. There are better blended whiskies out there, why on earth would you pay ?135 for this i have no idea.
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.
No word ... simply the best I ever taste
Taste was awesome ...its richy .....tasty
Best in the world in taking it neat! But now the problem is that my pockets are also neat.
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!
