Johnnie Walker 18 Year

Peated Blend — Scotland

3.5 out of 5 stars
This isn't bad, even though it's a grain blend. I also agree with others that I'd rather be drinking this than Blue. My main issue with both it and Blue is that both have a coldly scientific emphasis on being as "smooth" as possible at the expense of character or any other memorable qualities. It is exactly what you expect if your goal is "Smooth, inoffensive Scotch." which is not to say it's bad. When you're in the mood for comfort without challenge, this is exactly what you want, at half the price of their top shelf
