Johnnie Walker Blue is smooth, with a subtle smoky aroma and an enjoyable fruity sweetness. It would also be technically correct to say that the drink does not feature the turpentine burn that makes you fear for your tonsils when you down a glass of cheap scotch, and the bittersweet aftertaste will actually linger in a good way long after you’ve finished the drink.
If you’re looking to find a problem with the taste, you’ll find it, especially if you’re used to single malt scotches. The blend of flavors in this scotch means that you will probably eventually taste one you don’t like, especially if you have a thing against grain spirits. Your best bet to truly enjoy the drink is to shut up and drink it. Don’t overanalyze it, just drink.
