A blended (vatted) malt aged for at least 15 years, from a brand more usually associated with premium blended Scotch. Johnnie Walker Green Label is a blend of four single malts: Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore and Caol Ila, and unusually for a Johnnie Walker blend, no grain whisky.

Originally launched in 1997 under the brand 'Johnnie Walker Pure Malt' the term 'pure malt' attracted controversy eventually leading to its being re-branding as 'Johnnie Walker Green Label' in 2004. Initially launched in travel retail this Johnnie Walker line extension was rolled out with its name change in 2004. The present day bottom label says "aged 15 years" and "the art of pure malt".

In 2011 Diageo announced Green Label would be discontinued in all markets except for Taiwan, but happily the company reintroduced the product to most markets in 2016 due “to popular demand.”

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 21/10/2011


Clear, golden yellow with polished light gold highlights.


A something for everyone nose with wafts of smoke, delicate oak, a spray of sea salt, honey, faint coffee and rubbed mint aromas.


Approachable yet superbly complex smoky, slightly salty malty palate with dry cedar and oak, plenty of spice, bitter coffee, nuts and grass masking fruit cake flavours which strive to be noticed.


Smokey, malty finish with linseed oil.
