Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is a complex, luxurious blend harboring deep layers of flavor that perfectly balance the diverse character of the distilleries from which it came and the wood in which it has rested.
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Aged 18 years, this “private blend,” added to the line-up in 2013, is supple and smooth. It has a vibrant topaz tint and bold orange peel and honey notes underpinned by light smokiness. The smoky notes gently crest with each additional sip. - K.N. (Dec 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - (UB Collection,Finalist)- Eye-catching golden wheat field color. Dense, dusty dry aromas include breakfast cereal, cookie batter, dough, worn leather, banana, guava. Taste-wise, it’s flowery, complex, grainy, with hints of Graham cracker, allspice, vanilla bean. Finishes creamy, elegant, toasty. Seriously luscious.
Vanilla, cracked white pepper and a briny, sherry-like nuttiness fill the nose followed by a subdued essence of banana. Opulent and toasty on the palate, it is rounded off by baking spices and a refreshing dried cherry characteristic. Breakfast cereal and tropical fruits linger long into the finish. (Mar 2015)
