Raided Score: 80 Publication: The Whiskey Wash Excerpt: For my money, the blend drinks like a mixer. This becomes problematic when paired with a premium price point. The simple fact of the matter is that there is nothing Gold Label Reserve does well that other Walker Labels do not do better. Read Full Review Raided Score: 93 Publication: WhiskyCast Excerpt: The finish has a lemony tartness with lingering cinnamon spice balanced by a bit of honey, and is very long and smooth with a good overall balance. Read Full Review Raided Score: 84 Publication: whiskyfun Excerpt: It's another blend that seems to bear more peat and pepper. It's less full than the Double Black in my opinion but the peatiness on the palate works very well.

I think the Green is still my favorite so far, but this wasn’t half bad.

This is the re-release of the previously age stated Gold Label from Johnnie Walker
Sweet caramel, cake. Malty cereal, faint sea breeze.
Think mouthfeel but no heat. Sweet vanilla, cake, mild apple pear. Faint brine, butter cream and the faintest hint of some smoke.
Medium length. Gentle smoke, pepper, sea breeze. Lemon butter cream, cake-y notes. Overall its sweet, faintly briney and smokey.
Not the most complex thing in the world, but surprisingly complex for a Walker. I think the Green is still my favorite so far, but this wasnt half bad.
