Johnnie Walker Green Label
I've been working on a bottle of the Green Label recently. This is a really good "pure malt"-- a blend, or vatting of a number of single malts--no grain whiskey.
They have changed the packaging on this and now show what is in it--at least the four most interesting ingredients: Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore, and Caol Ila, all at least 15 years old. The Talisker gives it a long peppery finish, the LInkwood and Cragganmore are both flowery but sweet and dry respectively. The Caol Ila is a lightly peated Islay.
The result is, as you'd expect, very balanced. An initial smoky burst is followed by some intensely sweet malt. That is followed by a minty aftertaste leading to the peppery Talisker finish. Really fine stuff at about $50.
