Johnnie Walker Gold
A premium 18 year old blend from Johnnie Walker, Gold Label is a fruity, rich whisky with the Highland malt Clynelish at its heart. Jim Murray awarded this 96 points.
The nose is of good body and quite fresh. There are some notes of fruit and honeyed spice, a touch of perfume and a maritime drift wood note. The palate is quite full with good balance. There are notes of tropical fruits, a touch of stone fruit and smoke and a little beeswax. The finish is long with notes of eucalyptus oil and manuka honey.
My favourite Johnnie Walker blend
it is great
The definition of "ok"
i personally love this it is the best blend by far ever tasted yes I paid full price but is worth it. The blend is just so equally balanced and of value!!

If you were to open a dictionary, this whisky would appear next to the definition of average. Flat and watered down. I would not pay attention to the 18 year age statement at all. Lucked out and only paid 60 dollars US for it in PR. Do not pay full price for this.

Years ago, when I was already a fan of the Black Label I sampled both Gold Label and Blue Label. While I liked the Blue Label, I much preferred the taste of Gold Label. It's my favourite blended whiskey. (My favourite single malt is Highland Park). I'm afraid the other reviewer is focusing on price rather than worth. I'm happy to say I still have 2 bottles left of the Gold Label 18 Year Old, I've yet to try the newer Gold Label reserve.

If you want to pay +70€ for a 35€ whisky this is the one. Not especially surprising or distinctive. Not recommended
