Johnnie Walker Island Bottling Note

Originally released for the Travel Retail Market, Johnnie Walker's Island Green blended malt is a variation on their popular (and recently relaunched) Green Label, made with a hearty helping of smoky Islay whisky at its core. Also, the name reminds us of Weezer's song 'Island in the Sun' from their Green album.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fruity coffee with a whiff of earthy smoke. Subtle caramel hints later on.

Palate: Grilled apricot and date, drying spices, milk chocolate.

Finish: Burnt oak, raisins and red apples.

Johnnie Walker Island Green Reviews

Rich and smokey. Much better than the newest version of Green Label

An amazingly good blend.
As Smokey as double black but a much richer taste.
Not too dissimilar from The Dalmore 12yo which for a blend is no bad thing.
I'm on my 4th bottle of Island Green now.
About £42 per litre in duty free.

Island Green is da bomb!

It’s only blend that I have ever embraced. Laphroaig is my distillery of choice, but lately I’ve only been able to afford Laphroaig 10 year and Quarter Barrell at the Duty Free Shops when returning from Ontario. The last few times only the exotic varieties were available ( the 10 year and Quarter Barrell) were sold out; I saw that Island Green was available, so I gave it a try. The bold smoke and sea characteristics won me over immediately. If it weren’t for bold Islas, I doubt that Scotch would be my spirit of choice. This week, we mistakenly ordered “Green Lable” on line, thinking it as the “Island Green.” We’re mildly disappointed. While the “Green” is pleasant it lacks the bold character of the Isla blend. I would love to see this more widely available. Island Green caused me to reconsider Johnnie Walker and blended Scotch. Better availability of Island Green will ensure my continued patronage. I’m pretty sure that this is my last order of Green Lable.

Good smoky blend

Earthy smoke, grilled apricot and date, yes... and the sweetness of milk chocolate and caramel. Then burnt oak, spicy bitterness, red apples.

I don't love it, but I like it.

Not good

Tastes like chloreseptic spray. Very disappointed thought I was buying something similar to Green Label.

Very good Blended Malt - mind you its not that peaty

A nice expression of Green Lable, said to be more Island style - peaty. Well, its not that peaty and it’s pity. Its just another expression, a nice expressions but a wee bit pricey for a No age statement blended malt (the green lable is 15 y.o !)

Wish you still made it.

Bought it on board a cruise line when I was in the Caribbean. Johnny Walker island green has become my favorite blended scotch, and I cannot find it anywhere…Wish you still made it.

Superb

This is the sort of thing JW do extremely well - professional and expertly blended whiskies, tasteful and selling in the mega-thousands. That’s quite a trick to pull on this kind of inflated scale. This is sublime - a wonderful reminder of some personal favourites, with maritime, smoky, earthy flavours and rather exotic fruity finish. The nose alone is Northern winter seashore after a storm while eating fruit pastilles. Typically JW; stylish and classy, quality unfinished by massive quantities.

Nice taste

Good tasting nice finish

Only eluded to something greater

I don't pick up any depth past the smoky , peat and iodine. I felt I wanted it to be better, I was hopeful , but didn't deliver, the palate only alluded to something greater.

I'm working towards blue label for him after buying a nice decanter and crystal glasses.

Got a bottle at Madeira Airport for around £40 for my Dad. Nice packaging and slightly heavier base to the bottle is a different touch setting it apart.
Dad is more than happy and likes savouring the taste of the blend. He gave it the thumbs up and enjoys a wee dram in the evening.

Good... but I was hoping for more.

Look, the JW Green is a go-to for me, and I love a peated whiskey (Caol Ila, Kilchoman, Longrow, Laphroaig), so I had expectations that were commensurate with my love of The Green. This whisky, while good, wasn't of the same calibre as the Green. It's nice as a counterpoint to The Green, and it's a well-made whisky. But it has a significantly-different blend, and the presentation isn't as well-balanced or expressive. It's a little clumsy. I'd wager a small amount that therte's some grain alcohol filler in there (with nothing to back up this assertion other than speculation). It's a little like kicking a ball around with Lionel Messi - you might be good, but you're not /that/ good. Unfair, I know, but such is the standard of the original JW Green, IMHO.
