Ralfy, What do the marks mean? What I mean is; what is good, what is bad, what is mediocre when it comes to the malt and blend marks?
not for a while yet, they are expensive for what they are.
Hi Ralfy, Do you have any plans of reviewing either the JW Gold Label, or the Bushmills 16-21 year olds?
@ralfystuff why do you say that?
@ralfystuff That makes sense. Thanks very much!
Malts have strong flavours which can be demanding (or off-putting) for those not experienced with them, so Blended whisky offers a milder more palatable version of Scotch which allows a novice to build up to the more powerful flavour combinations.
Would you be so kind as to explain why you say one should start his whiskey-journey with blended whiskey, and not with single malt? I don’t know much about whiskey, but from a general logic I’d say it’s better to start with the “basics” – as single malts are the basic for blendes whiskey – and later move on to mixtures, where I’d believe it to be harder to discriminate flavour.
I’m a new whiskey drinker and viewer of your series. I must say that I am a fan of both and wouldn’t be if not for your input. Thank You!
yes, next year !
Any plans to review the JW Double Black?
Thanks again for the recommendation!
I believe this is due to the high demand of their product in the world (because of all the money spend in advertisements many people believe JW is the best whiskey in the world) and JW not being able to age their whiskey to the right time.
many would agree with you (including myself) and I expect the quality of all JW’s to get worse over the next ten years.
I stop drinking Johnnie Walker Black Label because It does not taste like it used to. Just my personal opinion.
@CAD390 I agree, but I feel that to many people don’t taste what they are drinking when they mix whiskey. If I’m going to spend $40-$60 on a bottle, I want to taste what I’m paying for. if your going have a coke or mix in with you just use some JD’s that stuff taste like ass on its own.
a perfectly good point your making here, whoever buys the stuff must enjoy the stuff as they please without external snobbery or judgements.
