A nice, lighter expression of the blender's art compared to other JW expressions. Light nose with hints of dried fruit, sugar and smoke. Light start with hints of nuts, dried fruit and citrus, hot mid-palate and very light finish. I think it's a decent enough dram, but is a step backwards from the previous Gold Label it's replacing which had a slightly heavier start and a bit more depth and character.
Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve is a bold, confident Scotch whisky as luxurious and indulgent as its name suggests. A multi-layered blend, it offers a smooth balance of sweet fruits and creaminess that evolves into deeper honeyed tones before finishing in lingering waves of wood, fruit, and light, sweet west coast smoke. Inspired by an unbroken 190-year lineage of expertise dating back to John Walker himself, it has been crafted as a celebration of the blender's art.
