Guesses to Min Ages in JW Gold Reserve?
I am curious as to what the best guess to minimum age JW has put into their new Gold Reserve.
They have said it is a "no minimum age" blend meaning it could include anything from 1yr old to ???. I would think this is not the case..but since will still be trying to hit a US price point of $89-99 it would be disappointing to find its a glorified 6-12yr old blend with some 18+ in it.
Diaego Cust. Service has admitted it cannot deny that young whiskies are not being used to " create maturity and complexity of flavor".
Just marketing gimmicks it looks like to bring on Platnium 18. I dont know why they did not put Platinum with a more exclusive blend on top of the Gold label. Platinum is a bit more pricey than gold in metals market. It is not like there is an aura of eliteness in the JW Blue label when you can buy it at Costco for $159.99 USD.
