Johnnie Walker 18

Thanks to my buddy for pouring this as part of a Johnnie Walker vertical at a recent whisky tasting (we all socially distanced and stayed outside and were all fully vaccinated). Average person asks you about whisky. In their head they barely know that Irish Whiskey and Bourbon and Canadian Whisky and Rye (both of […]

Johnnie Walker 10 Triple Grain American Oak / Johnnie Walker 10 Select Casks – Rye Cask Finish

Thanks to twiddleDD for these samples. I don’t avoid blends, I merely weep for their current state. I’ve said it before that grain whisky takes a long time to be flavourful. So when you then take said grain whisky and then mix it with a blend that has an age statement denoting that the required amount of […]

Johnnie Walker Red (1970s)

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuyTo for sharing this dram. Whisky pops up in history here and there. Let me be clear: History is filled with more important things than distilled beer that ensures we get giggly while tasting different interesting flavours. However, what is interesting, when looking at important figures who had major impacts, they drank heavily. It’s no […]

Johnnie Walker Double Black

Thanks to /u/Tsefly for the sample. And the cool labels. A lot of people ask the usual question: Why are threesomes the number one secret sexual desire of men? Trust me, I’m getting to the whisky soon. And the typical answer, as given by many people, is this: Do you like cookies? (Assuming you do and […]

Johnnie Walker Red Label

Here’s my penance for ripping off /u/tintin777 in a whisky review series. Dammit. Alright, I’m not going to lie: There are some Johnnie Walker products I have enjoyed, and others I’ve been pretty meh about. And even the ones I loved, I didn’t go too nuts for them. As a marketer (yes I’m Satan) I full […]

Mystery Exchange Reviews [Glenlivet 18, Johnnie Walker Green Label, Glenmorangie 18, Balvenie 17 Peated Cask, Glenfarclas 21]

So as most people know by now, I kinda went on a bender on my vacation to the UK. 50 whisky samples in 15 days was both awesome and completely stupid, as I’m on medication where I’m not really supposed to have more than 4 oz. of hard liquor per week. None the less, I […]

Johnnie Walker Black Label

I… I think I completely forgot I had reviewed this one until I found a review sitting around. Guess that goes to show, eventually you can drink too much whisky, have too much fun, and eat too much butter. Side note: Seriously, why do people rag on English food so much? I really enjoyed it! […]

Johnnie Walker Gold Reserve

So if you haven’t read my last review, you won’t know that all the whiskies in the bar I was in were 2 pound 50 p. Now you do. See what I did there? Anyway, I didn’t know this when I walked up to order my second dram (and some water to clear my mouth […]
