I never had the much revered original JWG, but have always read about how rich and smoky it was. I bought a bottle earlier this year and while I liked it, it really wasn’t all that smoky. Then I bought another bottle that had a slight label change and it was much, much better. It was like they listened to the people and added a big helping of the Caol Ila portion to the blend. The label on the right is the smooth/rich/not so smoky one and the label on the left is the richer/smoky blend. To confirm it, I even bought one more of each to see if it was a fluke, and it was the same. Has anyone else come across this or hear of any changes made to the blend to bring it back in line with the original?
I can't tell you that they made any changes, but I had a similar experience with Johnnie walker. Let's see if someone else can confirm it.
