Not that I’m a snob, or an expert, but I usually drink/buy single malts. Johnnie Walker was on special offer in the supermarket (there’s a surprise, me buying whisky that was on offer 😉 ) and I thought I’d give it a go, I’ve bought it in a pub a couple of times and liked it.
I guess it’s the Glenfiddich of blended whiskies, as it’s probably the most famous blend, and I’d guess like Glenfiddich a household name when it comes to whisky. They say it’s the most popular, and like Glenfiddich I guess that may be true because, well, it’s nice.
That’s it, it’s nice neat, or with a mixer. There’s nothing wrong with it, but there’s nothing special about it, it’s safe. I’d drink it again, but I doubt I’d buy a bottle again, it’s just a nice whisky. It’s smooth, there’s next to no burn, it tastes of vanilla, spice, sort of like whisky should I guess. You can add a mixer to it, that’s fine, tastes like whisky and lemonade “should”.
If it’s on special offer, it may be worth having in the house for when you fancy a drink, or have guests, but if you want to experiment with blends then shops like Lidl or Aldi do more interesting/better value for money bottles.
