Blended malt or vatted malt or pure malt, how Green Label was previously known, means that the blend contains no grain whisky and it consists of single malt whiskies only. In 2004 the latter two descriptors were reclassified as "blended malt" by the Scotch Whisky Association to standardise Scotch whisky descriptors and to avoid confusion.
Forgot my review from my previous comment. 5/5 without a doubt.
I have bought six bottles of Green from these guys and every delivery was on time and in perfect condition except one. On one of the orders the green box was ripped during packing. One phone call and they sent another empty box right out. It was a gift so it was important that the box be intact. They followed through perfectly. They have my business.
Bought a case when I learned that JW discontinued this amazing, unique whiskey - and I will horde it as long as I can. It will be sorely missed - get them while you can!
Transaction was perfect, and I am grateful you still had it on the shelf!
Haven't tried it yet, because I'm waiting for that special occasion. But the packaging was great and the shipment time was as promised. So I'm very pleased and have ordered again for those reasons.
technically, it's not a blended scotch per se. it's a vatted malt
Best blended scotch that I ever had. As someone who prefers Single Malts, was presently surprised that JW Green now finds a special place in my cabinet. The product arrived on time and without incident.
Best blended Scotch I have had. A little harsh on the first tasting note, but goes down like silk. Was delivered on time and in perfect condition.
johnnie walker is one of the most recognized and most widely distributed scotch whisky brands in the world. originally sold by john walker in 1820 at his grocery store under the name walker's kilmarnock whisky, it was not until his death in 1857 when his son alexander walker and grandson alexander walker ii made the brand popular.
in 1906-1909 under the control of john's grandson alexander ii and his other grandson george paterson walker the brand expanded and obtained its current name and look.
alexander walker had previously introduced the signature square bottle and the angled label in 1870 but it was alexander ii and george who introduced the colored labels and in 1908 the managing director james stevenson suggested renaming the brand from walker's kilmarnock to johnnie walker.
this was also the time when the iconic striding man figure, designed by tom browne and modelled after the founder john walker, was introduced as the johnnie walker logo.
