Because it may not be available much longer, I sprang for a bottle of Johnnie Walker Green Label. Every 3-4yrs I venture to a whiskey other than bourbon and I am instantly reminded why it will be another 3-4yrs until I venture away from bourbon again: only bourbon does it for me.

My quick and dirty impression of the green label: smooth and good, clearly a quality product, but I can't get over how much it tastes like a tequila/bourbon blend.

Its ok, this bottle of JW GL will have a home tucked in the back of the bar for a long time to come and will eventually be revisited. Someday.
