So, in my goal to acquire all the Johnnie Walker labels I recently acquired the Platinum Label. Here are my thoughts on it-
I thought it would be useful to compare it to other color labels. The closest bottles I have to compare is the original Gold Label and the original Green Label.
Compared to Gold Label it’s not quite as drinkable. The Gold Label is smoother and has only a hint of peppery finish. But it also had no real aftertaste.
Compared to the Green Label it’s about the same in terms of sipping. The green label has a peatier taste which makes it not quite as smooth. The green label’s aftertaste is about even between a just a burn and a peppery finish.
Personally, the Gold Label is still my favorite (other than the one-day attainable Blue) but the Platinum is definitely a great addition if you’re a Johhnie Walker fan.
