Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Platinum Label
Also from Johnnie Walker Branded Whisky
Whisky or Whiskey
Insider knowledge: Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Platinum Label whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Platinum Label whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Platinum Label Bottling Note
Johnnie Walker Platinum sits between gold and blue in Walker's extensive range of blends. It carries an 18 year old age statement and comes in a very smart box.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 24 hours.
Nose: Sweet rich and deep notes with maraschino cherries, toffee caramel, vanilla, baked rhubarb crumble and a very thin whiff of smoke.
Palate: The richness continues onto the palate, which is sweet and warming, with creamy malt, oats and cereal. A spicy vanilla cinnamon dusting too with the gentle smoke again developing.
Finish: Dark chocolate with caramalised peel.
Overall: Another pleasing blend from Johnnie Walker, this is quite different from the gold label.
just had platinum vs blue label side by side. survey says: platinum is just as smooth and flavorful as the blue. don't waste the extra 100 bucks on blue.

on the fence
I like it however, I love the double black, I cannot get enough of it love the smoke to it. platinum is smoother in my opinion but with cost a factor double black is better. If cost is not a factor then platinum or reserve gold (in the freezer, notes of honey.)

this is a really nice scotch. The biggest problem is that it's too easy to drink!
It has such a clean finish and while being very smooth and easy to drink, it has just enough character so that it doesn't feel like drinking a generic drop.

Worst scotch ever
After having the first sip I convinenced my self not to drink more of JW platinum after which I shifted to 100 pipers. Felt 100 piper was better than platinum, no taste no complexity was found by me.

For fans of blended scotch whisky, this latest addition to the Johnnie Walker portfolio will not disappoint.
Nose: Sherry oak, chocolate, wet leaves, loam and mint.
Palate: Blood oranges, rosewater, dark plumbs, raspberries.
Finish: Salt, slight signature Johnnie Walker smoke (probably Talisker) and red fruits.
General Impressions: This is a smooth, approachable dram that serves up lots of sherry, red fruits and a teensy weensy bit of smoke in a very refined and smooth package.
I picked this up at duty free for $88. Fair price. I would not pay $149 where I live. Never.
If you seek a pleasant, solid blended scotch, this works. It is not as great as Green Label, but I would put it ahead of Gold and Blue any day.

Cant say i am impressed with this at all, intense heat that kills the taste buds,cant see how you can claim dark chocolate,caramel, vanillia cinnamon et, you must have tried a different malt. for £70 including postage not a drink i would ever buy again.Best mixed with a coke to kill it.

Slightly disappointing. After hunting it down for weeks, I finally got a taste of this much anticipated blend back in November. I was dismayed by its indistinguishable taste. Double black was well crafted and sips smoother. Green is always a solid choice. However, Blue is still superior by far. Platinum has not found its niche. If JW is listening, I look forward to Diamond.
