Dalwhinnie 15 year old reviewSeptember 5, 2014
Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey reviewSeptember 8, 2014
Green Label is a discontinued 15 year old blended malt by Johnnie Walker. In my opinion, the only nice whisky from them. “Drawn from the four corners of Scotland”— Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore and Caol Ila were being used in the Green Label. Each of the malts matured for minimum 15 years.
THE GREEN HORNET of whisky – why did they discontinue this classic?
Ralfy states: “arrives like a blend but develops like a malt”. I agree. It has the both elements and fortunately the malt makes a good impact. Offering nice depth from the four different distilleries. This whisky definitely is like The Green Hornet movie – it needs a remake.
Nose: Toffee dominates with dark coffee and hints of smoke. Then comes the dry oak and nice sweet vanilla. Water adds cereal notes.
Taste: Dark chocolate, spices and hints of fruity notes. Crispy malt, nuts and oak. Water adds smooth sweetness and some bitterness as well.
Finish: Long and simple: spices with hints of dry oak.
Good blended malt
with great nose. Versatile dram that manages to utilize all the different malts it has. The diversity of all the different distilleries really comes across nicely.
Distillery: Malts from Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore, and Caol Ila Brand: Johnnie Walker ABV: 43%
