I finally found Gold Label Reserve! How does it compare to the original gold label?


Nose- Faint hints of grass and something I can’t identify. Stronger nose than original gold label.

Taste –  Almost pure water at first, so smooth.

Finish – That familiar, Johnnie Walker peppery aftertaste comes on strong. But it lingers on the tongue as a nice cinnamon flavor. In the original Gold Label, there was more cinnamon in the initial burn and more pepper that lingered on the tongue.

I can’t believe I’m going to say this but I think I like the reserve better. Its so smooth and pure tasting. The cinnamon aftertaste is so pleasant.
