A while back I started to get into whiskey and one of my first brands I tried was Johnnie walker. I know there most likely a better whiskey but for me I had a lot of good times while drinking it so the association of it for me makes it more enjoyable. I've tried red, black, gold and blue and the only color left is johnnie walker green (New colors are just re-branded old colors). I know it got discontinued but I am hoping to find a bottle somewhere in USA that can be shipped. Does anyone know of a website in the USA that would ship.
Johnnie Green has a place in my heart since it was the first bottle of scotch I ever bought. I even have that bottle custom engraved and have about 2 fingers left in it. The new bottle I have is around half full/empty.
Technically speaking, Green is a far superior product to black. Personal preference is ultimately the deciding factor...
Black is a 12yr blend containing roughtly 15-20% single malts. Green on the other hand is a vatting of 15 different Diageo singles malts all at least 15yrs old. The primary 4 are listed on the back.
Black isnt bad, nor is Green. But green's value ended when retail soared past $55/bottle. A great substitute for bother would be Johnnie Double Black. I think it's far better made than the tail end of the Green supplies.
As for black, I only really drink it in Maime Taylors and Bloody Mary's!
