    Johnnie Worker Red Labial the best whisky in the world? That's ridiculous.

    The link is a joke but JW Red has been the No. 1 best selling scotch according to those who keep such records.

    Indeed. As off-putting as Red Label is, all malt lovers owe a great debt to Walker, Chivas, Dewars, Cutty Sark and the like. Without the massive sales of blends around the world it wouldn't be financially viable to make so many single malts available.

    JWBlack is fine whisky. So is Great King St. Blend, though they are different beasts.

    Horses for courses, as they say, one of the advantages of blends is there is one (or more) to suit every taste.

    While they're technically in the same class, I think it's hard to compare the boutique blends like Compass Box's offerings or Duncan Taylor's Black Bull with the mega-blends.

    Regardless, they're no Red Labial. And aren't we all lucky there's that final L.

    I think JWB is good stuff. Teacher's isn't bad as well. Chivas is good on ice. JW Red..well I can't find much good to say there.
