Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

    User Reviews of the Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Platinum Label

    Nice, but over priced!

    Wasn't very impressed at all when 1st opened. It was harsh & had a bitter alcohol after taste, but after a couple of days of being opened it mellowed out quite a bit. The harshness & after taste both gone & now had a little bit of smoke to it. Nice. All in all not a bad dram but way over priced at $150+ a bottle here. Half of that I think is for the packaging. But when compared side by side with the old 18 Gold it doesn't stand a chance! The 18 Gold was a far superior whisky by far. This would only be a match to the old Green Label.

    Rich creamy undertones a richer tasting drink I would put it along side the blue label as a very good companion

    Gold is still the standard

    I've had them all and nothing compares to the Gold Reserve. Blue is great, as is Green. Both are better than Platinum, which tastes hotter than its 80 proof would lead you to believe. It's good Scotch, but I've yet to see JW top the Gold.

    My new favourite Whisky

    I've tried a few different single malts over the last couple of years.All have been priced around the $100 mark . The platinum is clearly my favourite. Smooth, a hint of smoky tones which suits my taste. This is a great drink to relax with at home after a long day.

    30th December 2014


    OK. Black Label far better value. Stick to the single malts- £40 Islay malt 100x better.

    26th December 2014

    Good stuff

    Prefer it over the Gold and Double Black (which I find far too smokey). A good step up from Black to have on more important occasions (or among better company).

    Very acceptable Walkers blend

    No hints of cherries, chocolate, vanilla, toffee or any of the mentioned tastes as described on the nose or palate, however a delightful and enjoyable whiskey. Would Recommend

    Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Platinum Label

    very good.

    13th December 2014

    not bad

    It's OK but dies not justify price. JW Black, Double Black or Blue is more worth it.

    Good Value for the Money

    Costco sells it for around $85. So smooth! It's as good as Blue, or nearly as good. Platinum exceeds all of my expectations.

    22nd September 2014

    Disappointing-Not a replacement for the 18 Year Gold

    I was really disappointed when I bought the Platinum. Since it was to replace the Gold 18 year I had hoped it was equally good, but it was not as smooth. I was able to drink the gold straight up; not the Platinum.

    30th July 2014


    Not what I expected. Nothing like blue.
    Will never buy again.

    26th July 2014


    Ric Flair loves it!

    10 out of 10

    I give 10 for packaging alone. Box is very smart, bottle even more.
    Should one really care what's inside :o ?!
    In my opinion it is on equal basis with JW blue. Just another pleasing
    release from JW team.
    Definitely value for money.

    6th April 2014

    Solid stuff

    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.

    23rd January 2014

    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.)

    scotch man

    7th January 2014

    31st December 2013


    best time I ever I had

    27th December 2013

    Absolutely lovely

    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.

    Scotch Drinker

    tried it for the first time today . normally into single malts , but this one was impressive , very smooth no burn and had a nice nose to it .. would def buy a bottle for the home bar

    19th December 2013


    very full, quite impressed, smoke filled aroma, will buy another bottle

    7th December 2013


    Good finish cant abandon blue though,not yet...

    17th November 2013


    а какой самый молодой спирт в нем сколько лет?

    31st October 2013

    Very Good

    This is a really nice drink, better than Gold. Some days I prefer it to Blue and Blue Cask.

    23rd October 2013

    i m fine

    I m fine now, after 5 min i ll add a reviw ... hope ... Tell my wife i m fine ...

    16th October 2013

    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.


    29th July 2013


    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.

    How does it compare to the Gold?...very simular...just that Smokey part which the Platinum has....but gold still smooth and good as platinum....would definatly buy for Axispaw..cheers,..

    13th April 2013

    Karl Dunne

    Double black is not smoother,..but its lable doesnt taste ad good as the bottle of Green lable..but no more....10 bottles of Platinum,...I still like it...each to there own!!

    7th April 2013

    Scotch Connoisseur

    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.

    15th February 2013

    Karl Dunne

    Well,...about 10 bottles now,....still magic!!!

    26th January 2013
