Johnnie Walker Blue Label Reviews
Tasting Notes by Tim FNose: 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.
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 mouth-feel, 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.

I don't like whiskey, but recipient's always rave about it.
I've tried all the JW available - Platinum included - Blue will always be my favorite. JW is the only scotch I drink that is out of my price range; when I get a bottle of blue (about once a year) it's an event with friends, and laughter. That's the only way to truly appreciate this.
I have tasted the Black Label,and it is wonderful.It is a bit smokey,and smooth.If the Blue Lable is better,than I can only imagine the taste of it.I am ordering it this weekend,and I will keep you informed.
Just bought this and just this second tasted it. Believe the hype!! JW Blue is amazing and I am so glad i bought this. Like most people, you're probably only going to buy this just to see what its like and trust me it's definately worth it!! Although a small box, it's well presented and a great way to see what JW Blue is actually like. Definately reccommeneded to anyone thinking is it worth blowing 40 notes just for a taste. And the answer is Yes :D
I have a bottle of this and im not sure when to drink it but im going to save it.
