Johnnie Walker Green Label Whisky 70cl
Initially Johnnie Walker’s Green Label was known as Johnnie Walker Pure Malt 15 Year Old when it was launched in 1997. However it was renamed to Green Label in 2004, which is what it is known as to this day.
Green Label is a blended Malt Whisky which uses four different malts. These are Speyside, Highland, Lowland and the Scottish Islands and all of these are at least 15 years old. Each of these blends has a different signature style which is represented by Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore and Caol Ila.
Each of the individual characteristics found within these matured malt whiskies are perfectly blended by Johnnie Walker, bringing together distinctly intense aromas of fresh cut grass, fresh fruits, wood smoke, pepper, vanilla and sandalwood.
This blending gives a unique depth of character which can’t be found in a single malt whisky.
The resulting drink gives a nose which is rich and full, with a feeling of the fireplace coming from wood smoke, but joined with espresso, bitter chocolate and a woodiness from oak.
On the palate this has a medium-body. Chocolate, coffee bean, cereals, a fruitiness reminiscent of dates and the nuttiness of walnut all come through. It lingers with a lengthy finish which is spicy, but mellowed with a touch of honey sweetness and a pleasant oakiness.
Perfectly enjoyable neat, with just a splash of water, or over ice – enjoy it the way you like.
