    Johnnie Walker Green Label is blended only from single malts which include its four signature malts Talisker, Cragganmore, Linkwood, and Caol Ila. The Johnnie Walker masters of blending concentrate on the keynote flavors in these malts to create the distinctive taste of Green Label.

    Color
    Amber +2 Artificially colored. No claim otherwise and the whiskies from which it is vatted aren’t this dark.
    Nose
    Buttery smoke, almonds, mulled apple cider , band-aids
    Body
    Average, nothing unusual. Heavier mouth feel.
    Palate
    The Dynamic duo…Pepper and Peat! Candied fruits like in a fruitcake, but not so sweet. It has a mysterious smoke flavor to it
    Finish
    Phenols, tempered peat and some grassy note. It has a Talisker taste, but it is very restrained. Very smooth for not containing grain alcohol, but it is aged to 15.

    I loved it. The first bottle I had was more grassy and floral than this one. The peat and smoke are more prominent in 2013 than they were in 2011. There was a grassier profile the, which is only apparent in the finish now. It is a real shame this has been discontinued. I have an unopened bottle for hoarding. Get yours while it is still in stores.

    Color
    light amber
    Nose
    mild vanilla with slight hints of peat and smoke not overpowering but its remarkably like black label on the nose
    Body
    full and smokey like most johnnie walker
    Palate
    wood bark and subtle coffee hints and a smoke finish
    Finish
    lingers but too long has a slightly sour finish

    improves drastically with a drop or two of water do not put this on ice like you would with other blends it drowns the whisky my score reflects the fact that it could be improved upon i just hope in the future that it does indeed get improved upon. this blows black label and even chivas 18 out of the water

    Nose
    Coffee grains, american oak/vanilla. Caramel, ginger, gentle smoke. Creamy fruit notes.
    Body
    medium 43% abv.
    Palate
    Sweet with some earthyness backing it up. Very malty, toffee flavored. Some suttle oak notes, and with time on the tongue comes hints of coal Ilya peat.
    Finish
    Caramel-honey ginger finish. Small hint of smoke.

    Most certainly needs time in the glass, and plenty of it. At first was not too impressed, with perseverance comes great reward. Seemed overly sweet at first.

    Color
    carmel e150 clear
    Nose
    Lighter overall probably because of fresh opened bottle and hope it improves with time. Orange, Oak, White firm fruit, some smoke, mixed spice. Increased oak, floral and vanilla with water.
    Body
    Medium but not thick. smooth with mild mid tongue edge and sharpness. Perhaps a little dry.
    Palate
    Dried citrus, mild smoke but not much peat, mid-tone various fruit and flora, moderate wet oak, decent bite and pepper but has a medicinal dry quality. Water mellows out smoke and oak to leave more vanilla and dark honey.
    Finish
    Medium decent finish. Smooth but then ends with a mild mid tongue astringent, tannic quality. Much like Macallan 12 ending but not as long and not quite as smooth.

    Good but somewhat of a letdown. Will probably NOT be missed when gone. I was so excited to try this Green JW because I really like various Single Malt Whiskeys (SMWs) and really love JW Black. I thought this would be a wonderful blend of 4 great SMWs. What I find is a good blended whiskey but NOT great and definitely not better than JW Black - Just different but 2 to 3X the price. The style and tastes are definitely Johnnie Walker, but the tannic finish with smoke but no peat leaves me disappointed.

    "Pale" would in fact be a good description. Its certainly not golden or rich amber.
    Nose
    This is by no means a big peated dram but that peat & smoke sure greeted my nose first.
    Body
    Fairly smooth. Seemed to have good legs/tears in the glass.
    Palate
    First wave was the peat which quickly fades away. Its very smooth. The more sips I took and longer it breathed the more balanced it got.
    Finish
    Comes on warm at first but very smooth finish. An interesting and enjoyable blended malt.

    What a pleasant surprise. Once I heard the Green Label was to be disco'd I went out and bought a bottle for keepsake. First time ever trying it. Its quite unique - would highly recommend.

    Amber waves of grain
    Nose
    Leather, slightly peaty and fruit notes of orange-tangerine.
    Body
    Creamy and smooth.
    Palate
    A full spectrum of fruit tastes turning to mild peat and then oak.
    Finish
    Medium-long finish, mile burn, fruit notes hanging in the mouth. Not too strong in any direction, and not weak or bland at all. Just nice and soothing.

    This is my go-to daily Scotch, when I'm not jonesin' for a heavy peat or sherry. It is spectacularly well balanced and drinkable.

    Color
    Deep Amber
    Nose
    Mostly Sweet, very complex on the nose... I get hints of Oak, vanilla, even some (odd to say) cotton candy. If you continue to nose it wisps of caramel and a little fruit present themselves. A beautiful nose!
    Body
    Robust, but not syrupy. Medium to thick.
    Palate
    Caramel and vanilla briefly at first, followed by a strong oak blast. Layer after layer this one doesn't leave you wanting, the complexity is lovely. This one is sweet, but not overly so... the sweetness is kept well in balance with the other flavors, this is my favorite blend.
    Finish
    Long and warm... like a campfire on a cool evening, without the smoke ;) Not Ardbeg long... but this one lasts a couple minutes, and you can feel it all the way down. The oak and vanilla stick around for a while.

    Highly recommend... this is another Whisky, I would describe as a "Must have at all times", when I finish one I get another (if I don't have one on standby). I find new flavors hidden in this blend every time I have some, it's like a familiar but strangely mysterious friend. This blend is the source of some qualities that keep me searching through single malts... I haven't found some of what is hidden in Green Label anywhere else. It is truly a delight!

    Spicy..... and not much else to me.
    Body
    Thin, watery, nothing noteworthy.
    Palate
    Much spicier than most whiskies I've tried, clear Talisker influence. Starts off sweet, but the spiciness rolls in quickly and remains throughout the sip.
    Finish
    Very long finish. I have to wait a solid 2-3 minutes for one sip to completely fade before I take another. Definitely not one to drink quickly if you want to enjoy it.

    Amber + 1 (due to E150A)
    Nose
    Typical JW nose, slightly peaty, floral, and sweet.
    Body
    Medium body for a malt blend. Not bad. Decent legs. Be careful not add too much water because it will drown the whisky.
    Palate
    Peat, slightly medicinal, floral, raisins, has a sherry character to it, decent quality for a JW brand.
    Finish
    Finish fades quickly. Not a memorable dram but decent enough for a family gathering.

    It's a JW Black but with refinement and sophistication. Slightly higher ABV strength but I have to give this an 79 because the selling price is outrageous, it's chill filtered, and due to the E150A artificial coloring.

    rich fruity palette, sweet and bit spicy. not really smokey but some traces. overall strong taste though, but not due to alcohol (what makes it solid rich whisky).
    Finish
    pretty strong attack, lasts long. prefer in smaller sips.

    solid rich whisky. worth tasting, but nothing exceptionally interesting though (so 80 it goes). something that black label should be (and black label is something red label should be and red label is something that should not be at all :) )

    Color
    gold/yellow
    Nose
    Distinct floral smell going on, earth, smoke, oak, buckwheat honey, old pear, raisins, some salt water. After a few sips, I could detect some vanilla and milk chocolate in the smell (which was not really expected).
    Body
    Aggressive, yet sticky and syrupy. Medium to full bodied with a nice presence.
    Palate
    Sea salt, earth and peat, a bit of smoke and oak are the dominant flavors. Maybe some pepper here too. The malty sweetness of the nose are much more hidden here as well as the floral notes, but still present.
    Finish
    Long lasting dry wood like finish. Oak, earth/peat.

    This is my first review. I'm a good beer taster and wanted to get my malt buds to another level. So here I am, trying to make decent reviews of whisky. For this one, I'll stick with the mean, since I think it's a very enjoyable whisky but I'm not knowledgeable enough to give a precise rating the way I can do it with beer. I'm 20 (in Canada, don't worry) and hope to be one day a fine whisky taster.

    The first blended malt I've had in many years and I must say I'm quite impressed. A beautifully balanced and very drinkable whisky. Ideal pre-dinner dram.
