Johnnie Walker Green Label 15 Year
Peated Blended Malt
Johnnie Walker // Scotland
The Green Label from Johnnie Walker is a blended malt, not a blended whisky; all whisky in the bottle is from single malt distilleries. In the blended malt are Talisker from Skye, Caol Ila from Islay, and Cragganmore & Linkwood both Speyside whiskies. This 15 year whisky (yes, it has an age statement) was sadly discontinued in 2012. Though in 2015, a limited number of bottles were re-released for purchase, to celebrate its 10th anniversary. (Update: As of April 2016, Johnnie Walker Green Label has been globally reintroduced due to popular demand.)
Peated Blended Malt100% malted barley from more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask TypeAmerican and European oak
"This is one of the most complex whiskies Johnnie Walker has ever put on the market. Mushrooms, iodine, cashews, and orange peel are some of the notes found. The richness of the malt is a very welcome treat. There is a sweet mid-palate with honey, almonds, and dates along with black tea and peat smoke. All of these notes work in harmony towards the finish."
