Which label do you guys prefer? Ive had tons of Black, some Red, and a glass of Blue with a few Jesuits at my college, but I like Black the best. Never had gold, green, and w/e there is out there dealing with J.Walker scotch.

Gold is my favorite of them all -- I stock Red, Black, Green, Gold, Blue, and Swing. I believe that when you get to the age of the Blue label, the nuance is a little lost in the blending. Not that it isn't good, but that other things are better for the pricepoint. ~ H

Compared to both of these other Scotchs, the JW was like sipping band aid water.

Gold is my favorite. I don't drink a whole lot of scotch though. Burns a hole in my stomach (maybe I need to eat a bigger dinner first?).

The only one I really like is Green.

I've had 'em all, and I prefer the Gold. I like it better than blue, which is good for my wallet. Giving a bottle of Blue as a gift is still fun, though.

Any good decent priced bottles of other types of Scotch? I am relatively new to Scotch and id rather drink it then loads of beer.

I like the Green Label, haven't tried Gold

Macallan 12yr is a good starter bottle of scotch

I've tried them all at one sitting and the green was my favorite and it wasn't even close. i would skip it altogether and go w/ single malt FTW.

Black is a decent go-to scotch if you're out and Glenfiddich is the only single malt available (most Sydney bars).
