Johnnie Walker Green Bottling Note

A vatted malt (or should we say blended malt) from Johnnie Walker, Jim Murray awarded this 15 year old a whopping 95 points in his 2010 Whisky Bible!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite rich and full. There are notes of mocchaccino and espresso coffee, wood smoke and a fireplace, a touch of bitter chocolate and oak. The palate is of medium-body with notes of crisp cereals, coffee beans and chocolate, a date note with a touch of walnut. The finish is quite long and spicy with honeyed sweetness and oak.

Lo Mejor de Johnnie Walker, lastima que ya esta descontinuado, Un Tesoro para quien tengas alguna botella celosamente guardada.

best johnny walker

Best of the group. Gold label reserve is pretty good as well but cost much more. Was disappointed with the blue label and the platinum label. If I can't get green label I will stick with the red label which I find to be very interesting with a young spicy flavor and a hint of Peat and a great price. Do not care for the black label, some people may like the smoky flavor but I find it smoky to the point of almost charred. Johnny Walker, please please please bring back the green label for North America.

Green with envy

I'd have to say that this is the nicest whisky I've ever tasted. I refer to the newer release, not the one in the photo above. It has a smoky taste and a hazy appearance when water and ice are added. I've recently had JW Platinum, Double Black and Glenlivet 12 year old and I much prefer the Green Label over any of these. I've now cleaned out 3 bottle shops in my town and if you've half a mind you'll get down and pick up whatever you can in this limited release.

6th August 2015


All i can say is WOW. tried a new version of this the re-release 2015 version. WOW WOW WOW! I just had a dram of glenlivet 18 before this, and I hate to admit it but i think the johnnie green is better in terms of flavour and delivery.

Nose is quite full, lots of sweet cereal notes. Palate is nice and creamy, super smooth and then moves to a dry medium slighty smoky finish.

I can say that the 2015 version is very sweet, like it is very sweet. It dosen't have much peat and smoke flavor, just a bit. It tastes like a really sweet speyside malt with lots of body and tad of smoke.

If you're feeling for a sweet, full flavoured, rich dram this is for you. good stuff!

Mr Matthew Smith

I feel that Johnnie walker green is one of the best whiskies ever produced it has a lovely smooth taste and a great rich aroma it is best served on its own for maximum flavour and worth every penny of the price.

Wonderful Rich 2015 Edition

I'm giving this a rating of 10 stars as there is no 9.5 rating and it really does deserve it.

This edition is just terrific, I picked up a bottle and drank from it two nights in a row... went back to get more and they had sold out on the day I bought it apparently. Now where do I get more?

It's really great on the nose, the flavor develops with just wonderful balance and everything you could expect from a whisky. And it is so much cheaper than what I normally drink. When I pick it up I thought what's the harm it's only a bottle of Johnnie Walker, but it's so much more, how is something like this in a Johnnie Walker line up?

As to the guy that prefers black label, which is just average, staggers me. This is no ordinary whisky and I love tasting whisky.

4th July 2015


I try but the Black Label taste better than the Green Label

30th June 2015

found the old one in a small liquor store in my city

I live in Florida and never tried the original Green label I got into drinking scotch after got discontinued. I was happy to see it coming back into U.S market this year in 2015. It's readily available in many places for around $60 but it's the new version and I'm enjoying it very much also stock piling for future you never know. Well back to my main point after almost giving up on finding the original pre 2011 version even searching internet and international pages, to my surprise there was one bottle left in a back storage overlooked in my local liquor store. I was so excited I bought it right away:) for a normal price. crappy thing is now I have to wait for a special occasion to taste it:)cheers

21st June 2015


Many years ago found the Green- superb- sad at its ending- FOUND it again- just sampled the new release- back came all of the great feelings of sipping a wonderful single blended malt!! I hope it continues.

16th June 2015

re release

according to official JW facebook page they are going to re release the green label throughout Australian selected retail shops in the next 2-3 coming weeks

21st May 2015


I'm a single malt guy personally, but I'm aware enough to know that I needed to find this stuff. After looking around it was nowhere to be found until i stumbled upon 6 bottles at a local liquor warehouse store. I bought 2 bottles for $46 a piece which i think is a steal.
It's very good scotch and I'm quite impressed with the full flavor and smoothness. I think I'm going to go back and buy one or two more as an investment because I don't see it listed on the JW website with their other labels, so I believe it is discontinued and may be worth something in the future. Also it doesn't hurt to have something this tasty lying around for desperate times.

20th May 2015

I still love the green

I recently found 4 bottles in Vientiane, Lao and snatched them all up, at a price about the same as black would cost here in Thailand. It seems not as fragrant as I recall from 5 years ago (perhaps my nose has decayed?), yet it still rolls on my tongue like velvet tadpoles...

19th May 2015

agree with comment about the new JW Green

I'm with you and your comments about is being a little different from the original Green I like so much...tastes a lot like Black Label, although I think the Double Black is as good,if not better than the new release of Jonnie Walker Green; I found this at Costco. Probably won't buy it again and just go for the Double Black for blended scotch. My preference is for a single malt!

5th April 2015

what do you think of the new GL? not what I remembered.

yes i saw a few people are finding it in Taiwan. Apparently they have a small operation still producing the original for Taiwan only.
They just released it again for internationally though in the new bottle. I got a bottle and tried it. I'm not sure what to think though I have the feeling it is a new blend because I remember Looooooving this scotch before it was discontinued and now... meh it's fine, but I was missing that old warm balance and complexity that i remembered. Maybe my palet has changed but it tasted a lot more like the red and black labels to me so I'll probably go back to my Ballentines 18 year for the same price, which is what i switched to when they discontinued... after a little cry.

anyone else feel the same way or am i way off?

27th March 2015

Still selling in the US

I also found a bottle (they had three) in my local store. I picked one up. And yes the bottle does seem to be different from the original. It's basically the same bottle and label as the black just with a different top.

5th March 2015

New US Bottle Design

I was surprised to find 6 new bottles at my local store. The bottle was of a different shape and label slightly different that what i am used to. Is Diageo re-releasing it in the US market?

21st February 2015

just found one in downtown Saigon!

I just found one in downtown Saigon. I know it is legit as I have been buying my scotches from this man for years. He sold it at the original price of approximately $30USD. Very excited to keep this tucked away. I have had it before and honestly prefer BLACK LABEL above all others. My rating is based on prior experience.

7th February 2015

Not bad

I am used to single malts so I was surprised to see this whilst on holiday in taiwan. $10US and it sells for $400 on ebay in Australia..... It's a lovely sweet complex drink though. Will take some home.

8th January 2015

I have one

i got this one Johnnie walker pure malt, Extra Special pure highland malt whisky from kilmarnock, scotland. i don't need it if you want you can buy it.

18th December 2014

hope to buy one

there is still lots of GL in Taiwan just like the abc whisky in TW

13th November 2014

Found a few

Found 4 on a dusty shelf, opened one. Enjoyable but prefer double black myself.
Will save the others to the collection.

4th November 2014

Us still has it

my local abc store has upwards of 10 bottals and so do many other stores im my area

5th October 2014


Over the last few months a online supplier in NZ has been sending pallets of the stuff to high end residents of Australia, paying upwards nearly double the price. Today I managed to import myself a case of now this rare scotch I've seen it on Ebay of $499 and upwards per bottle. And ppl are saying it's a very good investment

10th August 2014

Found a bottle - started collection.

Holiday at the Black sea in small town, Pomorie - and there it was, JW GL dusty box but in perfect condition. Bought it and two Makers Mark at a total of US 110 :O)

8th August 2014

excellent investment opportunity

never tasted it - but since its discontinued i thought it would be an excellent investment opportunity. 6 months ago it sold for zar 600 and now sells for zar1800 each in south africa. lets see what happens in 5/10 yrs :)

15th July 2014

Found a bottle!

Recently got into scotch whisky and somehow was able to find one bottle at a local liquor store. Unfortunately there was only one so I will probably not be sampling it unless I can find another.

2nd July 2014

Sorry to see it go.... As I drink it as if it were to stay forever

Well, I have a few bottles, and love drinking a bit each night, and will be sorry when I can no longer purchases any... At least there is JW Swing, not the same, but I like it too.

13th June 2014

Bought some yesterday...

Bought a bottle yesterday for £32. Is this still being produced? I'm thinking it is, in reduced quantities...?

10th June 2014

Drinking it right now

As a single malt fan I needed convincing. It's good. I bought six bottles. Only £35 here in London.

23rd May 2014

still in stock in Greenland

Just found 20 bottles in the duty free shop in the small airport Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, if any of you should get through there. 70$ for a 1ltr bottle.

8th May 2014

Large stock of green label

I live in the South American country which is the largest importer of Scotch whisky per capita in the world. In downtown ciudad del este today just one of the many stores that stock Johnnie Walker had 75 bottles of green. They are $75 a piece mind you.

6th May 2014

Green Label exploitation

I reside in Taiwan and its abundant at every store which sells alcohol at a price roughly abouve 30$US.....

EXPLINATION for the discontinued and why its still located here:

Taiwan is the 6th largest scotch whiskey consuming country in the world, despite its extremely small size. The Green label is still widely available here for two reasons: 1-Whiskey and Cognac companies, market the premium brands of their lines, making the higher priced products here (as an example, Hennessy VSOP is the standard, VS literally cant be found anywhere in this country, the lowest quality is Black, and that actually costs more than VSOP - I've looked and had to have regular VS imported). As a result of this branding, Green label isn't viewed as a premium brand, thus, it hasn't been marketed very well (it can be found at every 7/11), Welcome, Family Mart and Carrefour....EVERYONE OF THEM.
Reason number 2: discontinuation of the Green label was phased in, it wasn't discontinued here when it was initially discontinued in the US, thus, there is still a significant surplus......

Green Label, just as the original Gold Label have years stated on them (15 and 18 accordingly). As the demand of JW whiskey has risen and the company didn't anticipate this demand long ago, there is a shortage of the contents to create these blends. As a strategic move, the company is releasing lower quality whiskey (Gold Label RESERVE - no year on the bottle), maintaining the same price as the original....while its creating new brands at higher prices (Platinum) which maintain the same year as its predecessors at a much higher cost.....

Recognizing the fact that both the original GOLD label (not reserve) and Green Label, don't exist in America and will wont be here over the course of the next few years as well, have started to seek avenues to export to the US (however, right now I am hitting road blocks, and have a feeling that I will have to result to transporting them in my luggage during return trips).....

23rd April 2014

Found some at Wal-Mart

I should add that the buyer had not heard that Green Label had been discontinued, and said she thought her supplier would have more soon since I bought them out. I left my name and number, and told her I would return to buy whatever she could get if she would hold it for me. On the way out of town, I checked two other large liquor stores, and neither even had a facing for Green Label.

22nd April 2014

Found some at Wal-Mart

Everywhere I go, I look for Green Label, which has always been difficult to find. Yesterday, in the back of the liquor section of a Wal-Mart, I found five bottles of Johnnie Walker Green Label for $59 per bottle, and bought them all.

22nd April 2014

Must have found the very very last two bottles of JW GREEN LABLE

Not a regular of blended whiskey,but have been inspired by the comments
made.Will save them both for a special day.

9th April 2014

Green Label hummmmm!!!

I got 4 bottle on March 4th, 2014 when heard that it was discontinued. This is by far the best JW label.

9th April 2014

How was Green never marketed more than the others for being the best.

It is a true shame this bottle is going away. I wish I had discovered it long ago. As it were, nobody ever carried the Green label let alone even knew about it. Yet when I finally ordered a bottle through my local store, I found a bottle I could enjoy regularly. Unfortunately that first bottle was all I got before finding out it was discontinued. Luckily I found a case and snatched it up recently. Still, I believe Green would have done so much better if it were given as much press as the others (especially Gold). The best in my opinion.

31st March 2014

From a Newbie's point of view

Was able to find a couple bottles here in the Philippines. Being a remote country, not many people know about Green Label, and store owners don't realize it's discontinued. They also don't price it as high as those who know that it's no longer produced so I grabbed the opportunity. Must say, as a newbie to scotch whisky, I see patterns about a whisky with a lot of hype that always gets shot down by critics; not here, all the reviews I see are positive, meaning it must be that good. I don't know if it's just the power of suggestion, but i tried it (with my limited palate) and I loved it. Will be stocking up on this.

7th March 2014

Found a bottle for £22 - not telling where

Haven't tried this for a long time but worth every penny. I usually stick to a variety of Malts especially Islay but stray to a quality blend occasionally This qualifies as quality

16th January 2014

Abundant in Taiwan, hard to find elsewhere

I was on a business trip to Taiwan and saw the Green Label commonly available in convenient stores and groceries like Carrefour, bought a small sample bottle of 200ml to try out.
Being a single malt lover (and over on the peaty side) I was surprised by it's aroma and richness, especially long aftertaste. I almost couldn't believe it's a Johnny Walker (no offence by the way)
But the best part about this Scotch is its price, one of the best value out there!

13th January 2014

Found two bottles!!!!

I found two bottles in my local Tesco recently ( 28th Dec 2013) very dusty boxes but I bought both for £30 each!!! one to enjoy and one to put into my collection.

13th January 2014

Best value from Johnnie Walker

I love a nice Blue, but this is almost as good at a terrific price. I much prefer this over the Gold. Highly recommended, and friends who aren't yet ready for a single malt take to Green straight away.

25th September 2013

A great whisky

I love this stuff - late at night, wife gone to bed and just the cat for company. Glad to see there are so many other fans of this great whisky. A friend prefers double black, which I also like a lot, but this has the edge I think.

12th September 2013

So missing

Certainly the best JW, and one of the best whiskeys on malt with very good price. I always miss you green, you were great!

21st August 2013

Good vatted malt.

Good drop, smooth jw style but more complex taste. Very good stuff, perhaps the best of the jw range, gold, platinum ans blue also good and black is a standard for a cost effective blend. Shame it's been discontinued, still some bottles out there asda Milton Keyes where I most recently found it 32 quid 7 bottles left so I have 3 of those as not sure how long it will be around for.

Good drinkable scotch smoother than a lot of single malts at this price point and very drinkable.

Only negative is slightly too sweet so me at a time is enough but good start to go onto a more complicated drop to finish off a night.

12th July 2013

Also not for me

Picked up a bottle as the marketing states this will no longer be made and that this was a vatted whiskey from distillerys of single malts that I do like. I'm hoping that as it sits, it improves. The nose is the only thing going for it. The taste is "meh", but, the finish is faintly skunky. Very disappointed by the hype/reviews. May be the only & last blend that I try

3rd July 2013


For a vatted (pure) malt, not a blend, this whisky is just great full stop.
Imho not to be compared to either the 4 main whiskies in this Green Label vatting or the best of the malts which are out there.
Will be missed dearly, I'm lucky to have some bottles though:-)

26th June 2013

Still around

Got a bottle yesterday. Excellent

5th June 2013

smooth but not for me

I found this to be technically wonderful, a great aroma and complex taste and finish, but for some reason it just makes me sick, its got a nauseating blend of flavors that just dont seem like they were ever meant to meet. I seem to be in the minority here, but its not fantastic.

19th April 2013

Fallen by the wayside.

Why they would want to discontinue such a great whisky, I 'll never understand. But I bought the last eight bottles my store had in stock!

14th April 2013




11th April 2013

Cracking Blend

Just tried this whiskey for the first time, I love the sweetness and spice! Very easy to drink. Stocked up with a few bottles before it becomes hard to find.

6th March 2013

I'm gonna miss this Johnnyyy

One of THE BEST PURE MALTS has been discontinued...a big loss for all Malt Maniacs:(((

1st March 2013

Not JW fan

But this one is good

28th February 2013

simply the BEST

BEST JW ever

27th February 2013

karl dunne.

It is,okay...I prefer the double black for that extra smokeyness...or the Platinum..for just a higher quality...cheers,

24th February 2013

Absolutely the best JW

While I love all the blends some more than others, Green Label is by far the best of them all, even Blue label. Specially for the price you cannot beat how great this tastes with just a couple ice cubes. Rough at first but after a few minutes of the ice melting becomes very smooth and satisfying.

21st January 2013

A great Scotch

This is the kind of Scotch you MUST have with a good cigar. But if you're not a smoker, it's still a great Scotch but with the two together, the taste and felling is amazing.

13th January 2013

hard to find

good but could be better

17th December 2012


Just found green label in my local supermarket £30 happy days. Jw changing bottle colour to green so will see it again soon...

14th December 2012

Jameson as alternative?

same price range and same points ... what do you think?

11th December 2012

Is this true ...discontinued??

I love JW and this is a stand alone from the others ..truely a great blend even better than the gold in my opinion...I'll have to stock up if true!!

8th November 2012


any suggestions since this is gonna be discontinued....

29th October 2012

A perfect Scotch

There may be others you find more interesting. There may be times you need a peat or smoke fix, or want something really light, but nothing out there is as complete and balanced as this.

16th October 2012

Goodbye old friend

What a great blend this is. what a great great whiskey.

23rd August 2012

So sad

so sad that this great dram is being discontinued!

8th January 2012

Great Vatted Malt

It is really complex, multidimensional. Nose is fresh, with fruity smoke, tropical oak and sweetness. Awsome palate, round with a mix of tropical tree notes with apricot.
Delicious finish, perfectly ending this nice blend show.

14th September 2010


A brilliant blend of malts from the people who, undisputedly, for generations, have crafted excellent whiskies. Unique in taste, rich in flavour, a pleasing all round palate, great balance of peat, sweetness, oakiness and an exceptional finish. A favourite and highly recommended whisky.

28th June 2010

my favourite Johnnie...
