Johnny Walker Blue Label


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.

I would trade it for _several_ Gold and Green labels :-)

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.

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!

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)

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.

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! Don=92t 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?
