Johnnie Walker Green Label (Scottish Malt Blend, abv)
Nose: Quite fresh and fruity. Sweet notes such as orange, dried fig, honey and chocolate are accompanied by malt, straw and soot. Rich, complex and extremely well balanced.
Palate: I can say that it has a slightly sharper character on the palate compared to the nose. Spicy and peppery notes make themselves felt. Sweet aromas are still effective. Especially vanilla, honey, chocolate are in the foreground. These are accompanied by delicious oak and soot aromas. A very full-bodied and easy-drinking expression.
Finish: Medium length, spice, malt, dried figs and light soot.
My Comments: Green Label, which presents the characteristics of the malts it contains with a great balance, is an expression that I find very successful. If I have to summarize briefly, I can say that Green Label is the harmony of fruity, spicy and sooty notes.
