Johnnie Walker Platinum Label

Scotland-Rich and refined, a contemporary and complex blend of single malt and grain whiskies. The luxurious blend harbors deep layers of flavor that is perfectly balanced with diverse character. Enjoy neat or on the rocks for the ultimate experience. Intriguing product story written on the packaging of Johnnie Walker Platinum Label? In the Johnnie Walker extensive range of blends it sits between Johnnie Walker Gold and Johnnie Walker Blue. An impressive thing is it carries the 18 year old age statement.It is also being re-branded as Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Whisky. 
Having tried the Blue label and not Gold Label it was an adventure for me to taste this one as I only had the higher end Blue Label to compare it with. My findings below :-)

Awards Won- Gold; Blended Super Premium-2015, The Scotch Whisky Masters(The Spirits Business)

Tasting info-
Serving glass- Whisky glass

Serving style- On the rocks
Appearance- Rich honey amber
Aroma- I smelled vanilla and hints of almonds. Very light aroma
Flavor- Sweet cream, orange/citrus zest, slightly smoky
Finish- Smooth yet short finish(taste does not linger in mouth for long)

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
This is an interesting blend,smooth but not much flavor and light which is why it goes in my Middle shelf. The reason why it is not so strong is because its ABV is only 40%. I read that the older batches  of this Platinum range had ABV of 42% or higher. Overall it is an approachable and pleasing whisky for newcomers and probably for ladies as well since it is sweet and light in flavor. 

Everyone's taste bud is different. If you have tried it, write a comment below and let us know your experience with this blended whisky. 
Enjoy all and have a great weekend. Cheers 🥃🥃


  1. Looks good for a special occasion

    1. You got it right. Platinum Label or blue label are perfect for special occasions.

  2. I have yet to try any of the Johnny Walker offerings. I've heard it mentioned in country music songs dating back to my birth LOL! I guess its time I grabbed a bottle.

    1. I know is impossible to try all types of single malt and blended whisky that is why I try my best to share my experiences which might help everyone.
