Johnnie Walker Red Bottling Note

Red Label was created by the Johnnie Walker company in 1909, this is a classic blended whiskies, a great mixer and back bar favourite.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite pungent and full. There are notes of heather roots, cut herbs, a touch of fresh fruits and honey. The palate is quite full and rich. There are notes of malted barley and potpourri, a touch of winter spice and fruitcake. The finish is quite long and pungent, there is a good smoke note with a touch of oak.

User Reviews of the Johnnie Walker Red Label

After i drank all of the single malts and blends .. I have to admit that ..

Red label is the VERY best whiskey in the world , period !

Whiskey expert

22nd April 2017

Rich smoky flavour.

I've avoided it for 50 years being a snob but I had a miniature in a set and loved it; there was also a miniature of the Black Label which I thought rather anaemic after the hearty smoky flavour of the Red. I must have low tastes but my next whiskey purchase will definitely be J. W. Red Label.

18th April 2017


Simply the worst whisky I've ever had.
Tastes like burnt plastic, awful, awful stuff.

If u don't like this (which u wont) steer clear of Bowmore 12 year old too.

18th April 2017


It's powerful and rather raw , the finish is ok , exhilirating , better to mix with ice or soda - an addition to Black , Dewar etc .... when you get boring to one botlle .

16th April 2017

Very Good

Whisky? Really!

Why this whisky is still distilled amazes me. Yes its cheap and the taste reflects the price. How many people have been put off whisky by tasting this first? Needs to be well diluted with a mixer of choice. A cheap way to get a buzz.

3rd March 2017


Its nasty worst scotch I ever had

Cheeeerrrrssss everyone.

Smoothness and the smoke are the best part of this(price awesome).Not a downer drink, you get that great feeling after a few shots, like you're happy or "i'm the man" feeling lol. You'll be dancing and singing with your pals all nightttttttt.Cheeeeeeersssss!!!

It's very nice good quality & taste.

Great smooth old taste, nothing to match

A little too smokey

New to drinking Whisky, I personally love bourbon but I thought I would expand my horizons a bit. I'd seen the Red Label and new the brand so I thought I would try it. I found it a little to smokey for my palette. It reminds me of mescal a bit, but the smoke has a much cleaner finish. It lingers a little to long in the back of the throat.

While my palate isn't accustomed to this drink I won't let it hinder me from trying a less smokey whisky in the future.


19th November 2016

Mr St Clare

Alright it's young and cheap and massed produced. We get it, it's not Lagavulin or 15yr old glenfiddich..... But it's a good mixer with cola and ice cubes if your watching a film or have friends round. In my opinion it caters well to simple needs.

10th October 2016

Like the company says...

It's for mixing. I tried it with a simple 2:1 with club soda (the "Churchill" if you like), but find that to be too sweet for palate. It's probably better suited to mixing with cola or something that adds another flavor to the mix. Maybe even some bitters. I tend to prefer black label as it's got just a bit more depth. I will also shamelessly plug Ballantine's Finest as a solid lower end blended. For it's price you can drink neat, rocks, water, soda, or mixer and be pleasantly surprised by the versatility.

27th August 2016


For whisky bigginer u need to mix this dram with cola. It's not possible to have it neat or on the rocks. Other features r good like no hangover, no bad smell, takes u high quickly, for 1.5 hours of high time it gives, colour, etc.

12th August 2016

Mr. Moses Dmello

its a very smooth whiskey with smokey flavors, tingles on your tongue for long

10th August 2016

Good value

Good value, if I could afford better I'd go with black label.

6th August 2016


Very nice

6th July 2016

Old standard

Not great but for the price you shouldn't expect it to be.. What it is tho is a good basic scotch that can be a great mixer and is tolerable as a sipper, allot better than most in its price range, defiantly worth keeping a bottle in the cupboard as a cheap mixer

3rd July 2016

Serviceable, decent value

I don't know why I haven't got round to tasting this ubiquitous dram until now, but better late than never. I'm not getting the smokey notes others are mentioning, but that area of my palate may be deadened slightly by a fortnight in Islay sampling (among others) Bruichladdich's heavily peated valinches. I'm not massively impressed with this blend compared to, say, Black Bottle, which is a similar price, but if it happens to be on offer (as mine was), one could do worse for £15.

20th June 2016


Very nice long and smoky finish

I like it better than Black

Johnny Walker Red Label and Dewar's white label are my nightly drams. I love scotch, but I cannot afford to drink favorites as a daily. I keep a little black label around, but honestly, I don't like it nearly as much as the red. (just like I prefer white label over Black label Dewar's)

15th May 2016



6th May 2016


I like

28th April 2016



27th April 2016

Not bad...but not great either.

Look, it's quite simple really. If you are drinking JW Red Label, you know from the moment you crack open the bottle that this isn't the same quality of Scotch as a 18 year old single malt. For the money however, it's pretty damn decent. I drink this when money is tight and I can't afford Laphrohaig.

26th April 2016

Horrible, way over priced

I have tasted many different whiskeys. I like all types bourbons are my favorite normally but love a good scotch. I dont have a ton of money so when i saw Johnnie red on sale i went for it. One of the worst i have ever tasted. I have only dumped out 2 bottles of liquor in my life. 1 was a cheap $10 highland crest scotch and the other Johnnie walker red. Im not picky, it had a chemical after taste that i just couldn't stomach, and I was mixing it with coke!

24th April 2016


Inferior to the black label.

Thin, watery with an unpleasant smoky aftertaste

17th April 2016

Pretty Good

I love whisky. This is pretty good has some simple notes. Some long lasting. I bought it for $22, which isn't much. Don't get me wrong I've tasted better whiskers but this one is a great bargain. Ivrecommend it. Great for parties as a mixer too. Try it with Gingerale or Coke. I think you will like it.

9th April 2016

Yellow vodka

Sharp , bitter , methanol .. this is a whisky which can be drank but ONLY on the rocks or drowning it with water, definitely not a sipping whisky , if you're a beginner avoid that and get yourself a black label rather and drink it nice and neat

29th March 2016


Really really bad. Lives on because it's name is Johnnie.

9th March 2016


Not that great, but less painful than Ardbeg

31st January 2016


Having just finished a bottle of teachers I thought I would try this. Considering it's more expensive than Teachers you would expect better whisky. Sadly this is not the case. There appears to be not much flavour going on here. Disappointing.

17th January 2016

Disappointingly well balanced

Bought a small bottle as novice whisky 'connaisseur', for reference to other whiskies in my collection. This Red Label is not complex at all, its simple taste disappkoints me. No specific flavours or smell at all, just a balanced warm feeling.
Now I understand what a Coke-whisky is.

7th January 2016

ok for the price

This is not complex, it doesn't have any aroma, smell and has a boring taste.
Mix it somehow with cola or something else you like.
This is a whisky to drink and get drunk, it is for those who want to taste it in small sips, sit around with friends, discuss it or trying to have a whisky meeting.
It is ok for the money- costs not that much indeed.
You are not buying this whisky for yourself I suppose, it is just to give it to those who want to make you company and need to have a drink served somehow.

4th January 2016

it's fine.

it's ok straight. it's nice with ice. i'm mixing it with coke right now and posting about it just to piss off these elitist alcoholics who need to find a better hobby that doesn't make them sound like pretentious knob ends.

i spent 20 bucks and it tastes nice and makes me tingly.

they'll spend 50 bucks and it will taste nice and make them tingly.

the extra money allows them to condescendingly complain on the internet. choose your own purchase accordingly.

1st January 2016

Spend an extra tenner

And buy JW Black. One of the best value blends out there and streets ahead of this. This is made for mixing and nothing else.

31st December 2015

Not what i expected

I feel like it tastes like a cheap tequila. I was totally caught off guard by the taste.

19th December 2015

ok for the money

I thought it was ok in this price range but think most people would be better of spending an extra few pounds for a bottle of single malt though after half a bottle it grows on you :-)

18th December 2015

great flavour

I have consumed some crates of this in the past. The only competitor seems to be Black label. I chose red label for my affordability.

15th December 2015


I thought this was tasty for a 15 quid. Was suprised by the taste of this whiskey very sweet with a nice little kick / slow burn , no single malt yeah yeah whatever but drinkable in comparison to bells , grants, or white an mackays which I find nasty.

11th December 2015

Pleasantly surprised

As a uni student who loves his whisky I can rarely treat myself to a bottle, I saw the Red Label on offer and having never tried it took a gamble on it. I think its a very pleasant whisky with the smell and taste of warmed sour apples for me, reminds me of grandmas kitchen. Considering Bells is an alternative I'd always go with Red Label, although if you like them smokey I'd splash out an extra £5 and find Talisker Storm on offer somewhere!

2nd December 2015

Stop whining, it's cheap, and it's not that bad!

I see a lot of reviews slamming this blend (heaven forbid! blends are the devil to all those single malt connoisseur drinkers out there that are such great experts!
Yes, it may not be the most complicated of drinks... but it has it's place, especially for the price!
Yes, I also prefer JW double black but red label is ok. I call it Johnnie "sleep" Walker as it seems to make me sleepy and vivid dreams!... and it's also by royal appointment!... if it's good enough for 'he maj' then it's good enough for me!... (I wonder if she also has vivid dreams when she drinks this?)
get off your high horses and stop being such 'experts'!

11th November 2015

was my first

But I'm happy I've moved on. And I'll be happy when I've finished the bottle I'm currently working on. I get what people are saying, even if Red Label serves its purpose. I miss the old golf tournament they sponsored in Jamaica. Watching it as a kid during the cold Canadian winters left a warm spot in my heart for JW.

8th November 2015


Has more of a "bite" than its older brother, JWBL, and definitely more taste than J&B, which I sampled at the same bar beforehand (even vodka has more taste)! Grain, peat, some citrus lurking in the back. I imagine it would be more palatable with a drop of water. Not excellent, but not horrible either - quite middle of the road scotch and worth a try.

12th October 2015

Outboard motor fuel

For this product's taste experience, just go down to your nearest fuel station and fill up a liter bottle. Hint - if you really want to enjoy a proper scotch, you'll need to spend a bit more. Ooooh, does that make me an "elitist?" Well, the truth hurts sometimes. I also agree with 27th December 2014 - drinking scotch mixed or on the rocks is for people who just want to get messed up, on the cheap, being able to say that they're drinking "scotch." If that's you're thing, though, enjoy.

29th June 2015

bad design of plastic insert

I have been a red drinker for some time but I am so frustrated by the poorly designed plastic insert and cheap tin cap. The insert has no smooth edges and the cheap cap catches and pulls the entire insert out while trying to pour….many times causing major spill and over-pour….cannot believe they haven't fixed this by now… the scotch…hate the cap and insert !!!!!

16th June 2015

whatever floats your boat

I prefer the she tried malts and glens and bourbons to islays, not least because I stay in a hot dry country, not wild, wintery places. It does get pretty cold here for a few weeks and that's when I'll appreciate my Laphroaig, but mostly would prefer something like a cardhu or if I need a beast - Glenfarclas 105.
Anyway, the Red is a good, somewhat rough peaty blend. I can appreciate the flavors over ice, not meant to have neat. And I defo can't defile any half decent whisky by mixing with coke or red bull, sorry. I got oily, phenolic nose, some fruity caramely sweetness, almost a whiff of creamy baby food on the palate, finishing with decent peat and a touch of salt. Not bad, if a tad rough for someone who likes em sweet, can understand why a lot of people would like it. I can appreciate a whisky for what it set out to be, and from that perspective I can easily say this is a pretty decent blend. If you don't like the style, have something else, don't blame a doberman for not behaving like a spaniel if you know what I mean.

11th May 2015

Not my favorite. ..

I thought I had accidentally pure cough syrup into my glass. I love JW Black and decided to try this. I ended up leaving half the bottle in my hotel room when I departed.

4th May 2015

It's good stuff+++

I enjoy the single malts in my collection - Islay's, Highlanders, Speyside etc. But I also enjoy the JW Red. It's a well made spirit and just plain tasty. It has its place among the the single malts. It's certainly not a bad whisky at all.

25th April 2015

stop snobbing

Ok, I'll admit I've tasted way better. Glenmorrangie, Bowmore, speyburn, name 'em... But one day I just decided to go JW instead of Jamerson as my regular booze. Wasn't disappointed; you can find the distinct scottish peatiness, with a touch of sweetness that is quite pleasing. Anyway, haters and snobs will hate because of the name and the fact that it is a blend. Try it instead of any regular whisky.

11th April 2015

bellow par

not very good. alright for parties if you want something for mixing with soda.. But if you want something to enjoy straight, this is not the one you seek.

18th March 2015


good whisky with respect to price. some people really underrated it. i enjoyed it every time.

18th March 2015

not good

just tastes like vodka , yellow cheap bitter vodka

18th March 2015

I Like It ...

82.5 jIM murray's Bible ... Good Whisky ... worth Trying ...

16th March 2015

Wow this tastes like Sh@t

Wow man this stuff is awful. It even sucks as a mixer. I love whiskey but this stuff I can not stand. Im baffled by the good reviews. What the hick people!!!

28th February 2015

let go of the image

got turned off by a way too peaty Bowmore long ago....stayed with my sour mash and the whisky world via Grant's...was impressed...then on to the whole spectrum (still under $100..)! this would include the Aberlour A'bunadh...

today, just figured, why not, try JW Red. it's on sale...$22. almost got the black but figured better to start with this standby. floral, herbal sense of the ubiquitous 'grain'....not alot of depth (as expected) but the surface isn't superficial in the least! very creamy, sweet, peaty, warm honey, apples/pears...i mean, what a daily session afterwork etc dram! i still prefer the non-peaty Grant's, but this is solid. not for the newbie snobs #wetbehindtheears ;) cheers

14th February 2015

Underated for the $

Some of the previous reviews seem to have been written by very drunk people or 7 year olds. Red is your basic entry level scotch, that's why every tavern on the planet has it! Tastes decent neat or on the rocks, or go ahead and dump ginger ale over it at 25 bucks a bottle why not? The snobs amuse me, most are wet behind the ears I guess. If you actually drink whiskey you will find Johnnie Red quite drinkable.

25th January 2015

Not the best

I'm terrible at reviewing thing so I just say that I was disappointed in it.

24th January 2015

Tastes like paint thinner

It was great 10 years ago, I got a bottle at Christmas 2014 for 30.00 what a waste. Out of the five family members that had it looked at me and asked what cheap kind did I buy. I have tried it a few more times, it seems to be a very bad bottle. It was sealed when I bought it. I just will never buy your brand again.

23rd January 2015

Under rated

honestly one of my favorites.

19th January 2015


Decent enough as a cheap blend. Neat there's more than a hint of peat smokiness. Its sweet, young and somewhat oily. It lends itself best as a mixer which it is well suited for.

17th January 2015

Not bad for the price

This isn't supposed to be a Macallan 18. For $27, it's a decent budget buy. Ignore the hipsters and snobs, and go in with an open mind. Not a great scotch by any means, but you get what you pay for.

13th January 2015

Don't listen to the idiots down bellow.

This is a Scotch that competes with the lower end market. Red Label, it is what it is: An entry level Scotch that makes no bold claims. It offers an entry into Scotch for the mixers and the people who're price-conscious. I would buy this for a mixer. It's an okay sipper if you're desperate and low on money. But it still beats Jack and Gentleman Jack in the behind.

30th December 2014

On the rocks?

The fact that many of the reviewers here state they have to drink this on the rocks tells you this is not a good scotch. Anyone with basic knowledge of scotch knows that ice should never ever be used in a "good" scotch. If you want to drink a reasonably price JW - then do with Double Black.

27th December 2014

Mr.James Jackson

I purchased (2)Bottles for some reason it tasted like it was scorched I have drank red for years but this you can't drink I bought this on a carnival cruise I don't know if I will buy again Grouse is better scotch

23rd December 2014

jonhnie walker

is good

5th December 2014


A little smoky but solid. The Budweiser of scotch

14th November 2014

Excellent blend !

I enjoy it very much on the rocks.
Full nose and palate followed by a long complicated finish, uncommon for a blend.
Classic but I assume rather rough for whiskey starters.

30th October 2014

Good starting whisky

The reviewer with "Don't waste your time or your 10$" is a complete hipster. Absolutely the worst review I've ever read. Complete snob. Go review your mom.

29th October 2014

not good red lable

100 Piper n black did is way better

11th October 2014

Don't waste your time or your 10$

This stuff is so foul. I am a scotch drinker and this stuff makes me spine cringe. There's no way getting around paying 40$ a bottle at least for good scotch man. If you can't swing it, just stick to beer or Jack Daniels. Glenlivet 12 is the cheapest scotch I'll ever drink.

8th October 2014

28th September 2014

what classic remains classic

This is for party mix up or alone while listening Jehtro Tull. Welcome to the the great 70s zone

26th September 2014

As a consumer..

The star rating is given for the buy. By that I mean Red Label is a good all around scotch if you're strapped for cash. Neat it's a bit rough (but I like it), on the rocks it should be pretty palatable for anyone, and it's cheap and flavorful enough that you can mix it without fear. Don't buy Red label if you're looking for the Johnnie Walker experience, this is their bottom line. Not taking price into consideration and based just on flavor/experience probably a 5/10, but great for the money.

20th July 2014

The best blended whisky I tasted...

Rough, smokey, like a cowboy, the best 8 year whisky.
The JW Black Label is complex, but too smooth, looks like you're drinking a juice or somethink; Ballatines 8 is the worst, being too sweet and fully alcoholic taste. Bourbons and JackDaniels are great but, in my opinion, they have a strange rich tutti-frutti taste, more present in Jim Beam. Chivas 12 is gracious and female whisky, it means a nice choice for impress the chicks.

12th July 2014

Just OK

Save your money and search for Famous Grouse, also 8yrs old but way superior.

6th July 2014

'Rough' and smokey, I think I have a new favourite.

I'm not really a seasoned whiskey drinker, yes I love a good single malt but they're expensive. So when I look for a blend I'm mainly after something that burns and tastes smokey. Its a really harsh and quite smokey blend that suits me down to the ground. I love it when they're rather rough for lack of a better term. I think I have a new favorite cheapie. Better than grouse anyway, grouse was too smooth for my tastes I'll give it a 7, its not going to rock your world but it is nice.

13th June 2014

Good Bye Famous Grouse

I drank FG as an everyday scotch for years until an idiot at an annual fishing trip totally defamed the label by getting thunderously tanked.

So...As an excuse to try something new, I looked around for a casual end-of-the-day scotch to relax with friends and found Johnnie Walker Red Label. I was pleasantly surprised. I drink it over ice slightly chilled and it's little more complex than FG...With a little more body and a nice smokey finish. All I can say is Everyone's palate is different, drink what you like, leave the rest.

10th June 2014

What were people expecting?

The comment below... "everyone gives so much hype"?? Really?? I've NEVER heard the Red Label "hyped". It's the house blend in many bars and it's quality reflects that - decent, easily drinkable blend that doesn't make you wince if someone orders a mixer. This is a perfectly solid blend and, for the price, is very good value.

10th June 2014

First whisky

Random desire to sample some whisky see if there's not somethin to this drink everyone gives so much hype. So drank it neat, at first just burn, a little flavor, then urge to gag by the end. I'm still enthusiastic to keep trying new whisky.

2nd June 2014

Very below average whisky.

Very simple whisky. Nothing miraculous in taste and smell can not be foreseen.

31st May 2014

Texas Pete

Decent stalwart of the cabinet. Afforsable and versatile. Sometimes people would rather wear trainers walking to work, as there is no point wearing out the souls on the good work shoes.

18th May 2014


Jonnie Walker Red is a good whisky. It's dry (not maple syrup sweet like Bourbon), with that barley/herbal undertone you find in both Scotch and Irish whiskies and with just a touch of smoke and brine for a very tastey and very drinkable blended Scotch. It's good enough to savour but cheap enough to really enjoy. Beats Famous Grouse easy. It tastes much better than some of the mass marketed single malts too while being even more scotchy (than both of those Glens).

13th May 2014

johnnie red

Tried it and at first did not like it. Came back to give it another shot after my palate developed a little bit. Not a bad whisky. I'd rather have others, it has some good scotch qualities, very slight smoke in it, spices and a brief bit of f ruits. Not bad, if you're exploring might as well give it a shot. Very accessible.

25th April 2014

Noob but strange aftertaste

I'm a scotch/whiskey noob, have tried Tullamore, Bushmills, Crown, Jack, GlenLivet, Alberta Premium, and Johnnie Walker Red is in my opinion quite bad. I cannot drink it without noticing a strange aftertaste I have never experienced. I would be able to pick this out in a blind taste test, and that's not good!

5th March 2014


Don't drink it alone it's not nice just a cheap (ish) blended whisky. There are worse but all these sub 20 quid blends don't really offer you that type of drinking experience, it's the no 1 whiskey in the world remember but mainly due to the fact it's best with ice and a mixer I like if with ginger beer personally, and for that function it does job. On its own, I've had worse, but not something you would grab for a mellow wind down or to enjoy with a cigar, it's just it that sort of scotch,

1st March 2014

Worst Whiskey Ever!

I'm a Jack Daniel kind of guy, but I went ahead and bought Johnnie Walker for the sake of trying something different. Big mistake. This whiskey has a very weird aftertaste. So far I mixed it with different types of sodas and it still taste weird. Never again! And NO, I'm not a Scotch snob...just a regular Joe here.

1st March 2014

The only good whiskey for under $40

Only someone who doesn't know jack $hit about scotch would give Johnnie Red a bad review. And fyi the "smoke" is very faint, nobody normal would consider this "really smokey".

Best scotch for the price, hands down. Bushmills??!!?? Jameson??!!?!?!? Famous grouse??!?!?!?! Just stop.

14th February 2014

From a newbie's point of view

My interest in scotch is just starting to grow, so I try anything to culture my palate; doesn't matter if it has good or bad reviews.
Didn't quite appreciate my money's worth when I tried this alone, but it's amazing with root-beer or cream soda (amazing as in, I'd make it a point to keep a bottle of this in my room, if just to mix.)

The Family

At the end of the day..... Isn't it nice to have the full set?

21st January 2014


If you've never had any other whisky, you might be able to take JW Red with a cold coke and somewhat enjoy it. But the moment you taste anything else, you will gag when attempting to drink this. Potentially, it can be mixed with some other ingredients in order to extract some of its flavours. But be warned about trying to drink this one straight. Also, when consuming this, try tasting it before other stuff because I noticed that how hard I snap my head back depends on when I drink it. If its first I'm more tolerant. If I taste it after another better whiskey (say Teachers, Jameson, Tullamore Dew, Wild Turkey etc..) I tend to be more critical. Acrid & bitter, with a ghastly finish that leaves a bad taste in your mouth like the neighbourhood whisky bully.
And you don't even want to know what morning-after a bottle of this feels like.

13th January 2014

Not great. Not quite as terrible as some would have you believe

Rough and fiery, but not lacking in flavor. Passable.

5th January 2014

First Scotch

Didn't have alot of cash and wanted to try something different. It's a little warmer than I expected. I personally thought that it was good, but bear in mind that I haven't tried Black or Green. It was an okay starter Scotch.

29th December 2013

Great with a nice cigar

The smokiness of this blend makes for a nice pairing with a fine stogie. I will find myself reaching for this more often than the black for a bit more of a jolt to my taste buds.

12th December 2013

Why even ask?

I always wonder why people read reviews and then get mad at the reviews. It's scotch - it's something for YOU to consume. If YOU like it then drink it. If YOU don't like it then get something else. Listening to what other's say about it is nonsense. Snobs or not - everyone has a different palette and what you taste may be totally different than someone else. Try the stuff and see if YOU like it.

9th December 2013

Under rated!

I'm in the anti-snob group here. I started my single malt journey a few years ago and have only been exposed to malts from $50-$200. I feel a little cheated after drinking this. It's pretty damn good for $21.99. There is nothing offensive about this, and those saying so are truly not experienced single malt drinkers but amateurs partaking in simple snobbery. Try this if you don't want to run through all your good stuff, and need a value daily dram.

Very Good Whiskey

This is a good whiskey. Try it.

Great whiskey

It's smooth....I love it. Nice glass or two of red label on the rocks and I'm good to go. Fuck the rest.

It's perfectly good scotch

Don't listen to these Scotch snobs. They think they're so... sophisticated. Look, Red Label is a good solid scotch, with more complexity than most of the lower-priced blends (e.g. Dewar's or J&B or Whyte & Mackay). Try it on ice, or with a little soda water. Love it! In fact, I think I'll have one now. Or maybe two.

Red and Black

they were good enough Winston, Joe Namath, Christopher Hitchings, Dick Cheney, who am I to argue,don't forget the Philadelphia lawyer of the Constitutional daily.

Get it in perspective

Many years ago single malts were almost unknown and Red Label was the standard while Black Label was the premier. I've come back to both of these recently and they are both relatively good value for the money and when you don't want the full single malt these are nice blends.
My rating represents value relative to price.

Johnny Walker Red Label

Not what i expected, there are better one´s on the market.
Straight not very complex good for mixing and cocktails.....

Johnny Walker Red

Best straight up on ice, the way Brazilians drink it; the flavor of ice combines well with pungent flavor of the whiskey which is able to overcome the cold; it's all about combinations with blended whiskey; Famous Grouse tastes like soap after 10 minutes on ice.

It what it is

Cheap blend, ideal with coke, not nice on its own. Its not really intended fit this purpose, better than most cheap blends but not one to enjoy without a mixer.

Elitists need others to tell them what to like because they have no soul

This blend is a steal, and my favorite. The elitists above need others to tell them what to like because they have no taste of their own. Sad.

Character and Smoky, but not for snobs

Johnnie Walker isn't for snobby purists - it's blended" - it's for people who truly care about how it tastes to them and no one else. I always chuckle about the purity nonsense - it's alcohol people - not exactly a health food. LOL

Stop your kids drinking

if you have kids who show a curiosity in alcohol as most do at some time, and don't want the little buggers getting stuck into your decent scotch and watering it down hoping you don't notice, then take pre-emptive action and give them a taste of this vile fluid, telling them 'all whisky tastes this way'. this is a sure fire way to put them off for life

The sort only bought by aunties at Christmas...

Now don't get me wrong. I like a good whiskey. I like single malts. I like blended ones too. Having said that, this is below the line as to what I'd choose - EVER. In our house its used to make whisky sauce to go with the haggis and that's the only time the bottle is opened. I suppose I don't need to say much more.

25th March 2013

It's a decent whisky

This doesn't deserve such a low user rating, it's better than most cheap blends and is only criticised by whisky snobs because it's the best selling scotch in the world.

12th February 2013

Good value for taste

This was never really meant to be a whiskey to drink by itself, it is best blended with Coke or Dr Pepper in my mind. It's delicious when mixed, not as great alone, but still a good whiskey nonetheless

21st January 2013


If you want cheap good famous blends dont get this ashtray full of smoke. Id suggest jameson or famous grouse.

16th January 2013


I only dink this if I have to chose between it and Jack Daniels.
Don't waste your money on this spirit.

Take the advice of the name and keep on walking. bitter, oily, and very smoky. Nothing really makes it good. Very little redeeming character. I would not suggest drinking JW red.

A discret entry level blend

One of the best quality/price blend. Smoky and smooth, is a good way to start the whisky road.
