Johnnie Walker Gold Label 18 Year
Johnnie Walker // Scotland
It should be noted that this has been discontinued, though bottles are still out there in the world; keep your eyes open. This 18 year blended whisky uses single malts such as Clynelish and Cardhu in the blend. Sadly, Johnnie Walker seems to be losing most of their age statements; the new Gold Reserve lacks one.
Peated BlendA mix of grains and malted barley. From more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"This 18 year old is quite different than the new Gold Label Reserve. Heather and cereal notes are more prominent here and there is less of a honeyed quality as well. It has more of an oaked factor that gives the whisky some character along with a slight brine and dried apricot. The finish is more on the dry side and there is a faint wisp of smoke that lingers. "
