Johnnie Walker 15 Years Green label

In fact, the 15 year old Green Label was taken off the market in 2012. But because of the worldwide demand of the customers, Diageo decided in 2016 to bring the beloved whisky back on the shelf. Green Label is the only Blend of Johnnie Walker, that is exclusively created with Single Malts. He gains his unique character especially from the Malts of the Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore and Caol Ila distilleries.

Nosing: Süße Vanille Apfel Alkohol Trauben Rauch
Off the bat, there's a weird fake vanilla thing going on. Apple and white grape, general sweetness. Some light smokiness. Not as good as I remember from the past. The smokiness is more identifiably peaty.

Taste: Gewürze Rauch Süße
Sweet, reasonably intense arrival. Spiciness and smokiness builds over time. Some light tongue tongue burning towards the end.

Finish:
A continuation of the palate flavours, but short.

Comment:
I don't know what it is that has changed about the green label in the last couple of years, but it definitely isn't as good as I remember it. It still carries the 15 year age statement, but it feels like there's a lot more fresh bourbon cask influence than there used to be. It has that buttery fake vanilla character now that you get in very young NAS whisky, which I could do without. Don't get me wrong, the blending brings enough smokiness and other character that it isn't awful, I just remember it being a lot better than this. Shame.

The best of the line-up to me, by far. Great intensity of mostly Highland and Speyside malts on the nose, with nicely balanced barrel character, a noble touch of "old" mustiness and hints of peat smoke.
Clearly showing the Malt Blend pedigree. Excellent richness and texture on the palate, unparalleled by any of the grain-based JWs, even though the Platinum 18Y comes close in terms of richness.
Quite a classic and perfect blend, also a great bargain to its very end. I hear Taiwan is still officially receiving this blend.
