What he said.

Blue is good, but it's not great, and it's a blend, created as a
tourist rip-off.

If I'm going to drink a blend, I want to be the one doing the
blending.

Re: Johnny Walker Blue Label


I would trade it for Gold or Green label.

Re: Johnny Walker Blue Label


Reminds me of a JW sponsored tasting I attended a few years back. Everyone
was introduced to the JW lineup from red to blue. Every seat had a place
holder for the pour. I preferred the green, black was tolerable, red barely
drinkable. The highlight was the final pour, which came from several bottles
of Gold served straight from the freezer. That is the way they suggested we
drink it. I know what most of you are thinking, but it was quite good,
although quite expensive.

Hmmm. I freeze cheap vodka to minimise the taste of the undesirable
aromatics in it and to make drinking mutiple shots easier (on the rare
occasion I'm drinking lots socially, usually only then if we're playing
drinking games). I also chill cheap red wine if it's 'undrinkable' as room
temperature (I can't afford to throw it out).

Gotta wonder about drinking *blended* whisky from the freezer. I wasn't very
impessed the last time I tried JW gold label and dropped an ice cube it it
which is unusual for me. I normally drink my whisky neat these days (to the
extent that I don't even keep an ice tray in the freezer anymore)

Excellent choice! I like Johnny Walker Red to light my BBQ's charcoal.

Heh. A well-meaning but sadly misinformed relative bought me a bottle of
Grouse one Christmas. Came in handy for making a nice whisky, peppercorn and
cream sauce to go with steak.

Amazing, eh? I actually prefer Clan MacGregor (a supermarket Scotch) for
cooking. Great in cock a leekie soup!

Although I hesitate to admit it in here, 'Black Grouse' is often found in my
home. I'm an (Islay especially) single malt fan on a beer budget so, for
those times when I can't afford a single malt I've been known to get my
whisy and peat fix from three fingers of Black Grouse with a single ice
cube. (Or without, as I've not kept an ice tray in my frezzer for a while. I
must start having ice on hand again as SMSWs are becoming more and more
scarce around here.)

Sacrilege!  Dont let the good folks in alt.food.barbecue hear you say
something like that.. they are VERY against any use of  Chemicals to
start the charcoal .. no matter what you use there are residual
flavors.. get a charcoal chimney..

Use the Red label in the wasp trap..

They also get all h'et up over misuse of the terms, "bbq" and "grill" -- pay
no heed to 'em. Every religion has its zealots.

Isn't that using it more towards a scorched earth policy?

I love A'bunadh, the last two I tried were batch 18 and batch 24. However
for me I'd probably spend the proceeds on Ardbeg Uigeadail, It's my
favourite dram. That said I guess it's been a year since I've had a bottle,
less since I bought an A'bunadh. I foolishly spent nearly twice as much on a
bottle of Ardbeg Supernova for my Xmas gift to self as it was getting such
good reviews. It was OK, still a treat but too much of a peat monster for
me. I found it hard to get past the peat and smoke to discover other
flavours.

I wish now I'd bought a bottle of Uigeadail, or A'bunadh even.
