    Color
    amber
    Nose
    Floral, slight peat
    Body
    Full bodied
    Palate
    Chocolate, toffee, peppery, very nutty, and a hint of spice
    Finish
    Long smooth slightly smokey finish

    I have a full bar with the entire JW rainbow, several glenlivet, highland park, glenfiddich, dewars, belvenie, etc. I have bottles ranging from $17 (how much I pay for Red Label) to over $500. I have whisk(e)ys ageless to 30years. With all that being said, I drink red label every day. I go through about a bottle per week of red label. Regardless of what any review out there says, I am a Johnnie Walker man. I never drink scotch with ice but every now and then I will add a couple drops of water. Maybe I just have peculiar taste buds but I get a lot of chocolate, toffee, and a little pepper. I love my Red Label

    Review by ChadDavis

    7750/99
    Color
    Amber -2 pilsner beer
    Nose
    Pine, mild citrus like grapefruit, oaky butter, freshly cut bell pepper, clean folded towels. With Water: Butter and sugar, sweeter lemon and less pine
    Body
    only slightly oily, otherwise thin and astringent. Not overly leggy, thinner medium fast legs. It does, however, coat the glass.
    Palate
    Mysterious flavors! Pine oil, astringent, prickly and sour. No fruit taste whatever. Medicinal. With water: Sweeter, but a little bland. Orange cream soda, pronounced sweetness that was entirely absent when tasted neat. Grassy and pine notes are present but less obvious.
    Finish
    Grassy, leaves the tongue with a heather bitterness after a few sips. Lemon pulp, sour grapefruit. Acidic nutty taste afterwards. Where did the butter in the nose go? With Water: Shorter finish, with absolutely no bitterness. Sweet up front followed by grassiness. I tiny bit sour. What a delightful change.

    This is a Highland Single Malt. Aged 10 Years. It's 43% ABV, and aged in American (bourbon) and Spanish (sherry) oak. I'm not sure if the Distillery is actually in Speyside, but the bottle clearly says "Highland." Whereever it is located, it is clearly a Highland in style. Grassy and sour. Not at all unpleasant. It responds well to 2 tsp of water to the dram. In fact, just a little water transforms Speyburn 10 Year old from a bitter/sour grassy dram that is a bit hard on the tongue into a nicely mannered, somewhat sweet sherry and bourbon dance on the tongue. With water I like it. I am afraid to water it too much or it will drown. The first sip after watering is a little bland, but in a few minutes, a lovely profile emerged. I originally rated this an 83. Upon coming back to it, however, I could not reproduce the nice dram I had the first time around. Water didn't produce the nice change from bitter to sweet as it had before. I have been avoiding it when I go to my bar now, preferring Black Bottle.

    Color
    A fresh drop of amber from a Douglas-fir tree.
    Nose
    A gentle note of vanilla blenden with a touch of caramelized nuts.
    Body
    A tight and well defined smoothness.
    Palate
    An avalanche of walnuts topped with a dash peanut butter.
    Finish
    Warm like a home-made apple pie on a lonely Sunday afternoon.
