Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve is as great in a tall glass with crushed ice and an orange slice as it is neat. It's the blend with a 'golden touch': Whiskies are handpicked and perfectly balanced to create a blend that, like gold, has the power to transform great occasions, making Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve the "New Gold Standard of Celebration." The Clynelish whisky used in this blend gives an immediately succulent flavor. Soft, floral, and silky vanilla tones, along with a creamy peach flavor, leave a light sweetness in the mouth. Fresh blackcurrant and exotic, juicy mango notes give way to a gentle smokiness that slowly begins to emerge and create a full and indulgent experience. Nutmeg and gingerbread give a warm, animated character before relaxing and making way for the smokiness. All these rich, exotic flavors combine to create the hallmark of Johnnie Walker blends in one sensationally long, lingering gold finish.
Packaged in a limited-edition bottle that gleams like an Oscar statuette, this ìMaster Blender's Reserveî is hard to miss. The aroma shows baked apple and a hint of smoke. Lots of caramel coats the palate at first, followed by dry leather and a malty note, finishing with a gentle waft of light smoke.
