Aged 18 years, this “private blend,” added to the line-up in 2013, is supple and smooth. It has a vibrant topaz tint and bold orange peel and honey notes underpinned by light smokiness. The smoky notes gently crest with each additional sip. - K.N.
my favorite scotch is lagavulin, and my go to drink is jwblack, mostly for the ice, availability and price. so with those caveats, i love jwp. sure, it's not as rich in flavors as either of my favorites, but it's definitely a bottle to savor. it has a welcome aroma and is incredibly smooth, both on the tongue and after. nicer than many popular single malts and, to my taste, jwblue. i hope this great price is available when my case is gone. i helped my cause by giving a bottle to my son! enjoy
JW Platinum and Green are my two favorite blended malts/Scotches-- smooth, only subtle fruit and almost no smoke. They are also well priced at WC.
Taste is superb. You will totally enjoy a quality drink.
I believe this has more tasting characters then Johnnie Walker blue.
The earliest days of their business, the Walker family and subsequent generations of Master Blenders have crafted exclusive Scotch Whiskies for the directors of their company and for private gatherings – treasured whiskies that have only ever been shared with a select few, at special occasions. Inspired by this tradition, JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM LABEL™ is a supremely rich and full-flavored 18 year old Scotch Whisky, created for those truly special moments.
A contemporary and subtly smoky blend that embodies the characteristic full flavors of JOHNNIE WALKER® Blended Scotch Whiskies and reflects a strong sweet and elegant Speyside style. It has a rich, dark and intense flavor that rewards those who take the time to savour it. Stewed fruit, malty cereal, smooth creamy vanilla, fragrant, almonds and tangerines give JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM LABEL™ its waxy, fruity and sweet taste mixed with slight drying astringency with subtle smokiness.
