Speyside, Highland, Lowland, and Island malts aged for a minimum of fifteen years in American and European oak casks result in the complex and balanced Johnnie Walker Green Label. The very essence of all things Scotch. Four whisky styles working together to show the best of every region in Scotland.
Golden apples from Speyside malts, spices from the Lowlands, and smoke from the Island malts come together in an elaborate bouquet. All the elements work together for an enlightening experience. The nose evolves as you swirl your glass showing a fresh-cut grass under-note and peppery spiciness.
The palate has a medium-strength, but it’s very sophisticated, savory, and spicy rather than sweet or malty. Well-aged and seamlessly integrated for a balanced mouthfeel as intriguing as it is charming.
Sip or skip?
Sandalwood and weathered wood, with a savory spice background and earthy vanilla on the back-palate, unfold for a light aftertaste of average length.
The risky proposition of bringing together representative malts from all corners of Scotland pays off in a balanced and seamlessly integrated expression that shows the land’s savory, smoky, and earthbound flavors. Johnnie Walker Green Label is in a category of its own.
