Sampled (or should I say endured) in a Glencairn without water(although I had a few good mouthfuls afterwards). The legs were the best part, strong and thick like a Samoan rugby players.

Colour: Mucky brown, Castrol GTX motor oil.

Nose, Metallic, Castrol GTX motor oil.

Taste: Castrol GT…. no, only kidding. Well……it didn’t really taste of anything other than whisky. I realise this is a silly thing to say but it didn’t have any flavours to speak of, as if the makers simply wanted to produce something that was simply whisky flavoured. A very very very slight liquorice taste is the best I can come up with.

Finish: None to speak of and very short (thankfully).

I picked this up on holiday in the local mini mart for 15 euros or about £12 (which is roughly the same as a litre of Castrol GTX) and I feel overcharged. It’s definitely one for mixing with coke, putting in Hot toddys, giving to someone you don’t like’ someone who’s collapsed in the street outside your front door, or perhaps to the Samoan rugby player for rubbing alcohol. Otherwise avoid. I’d rather drink Castrol GTX....no perhaps not....but wait....maybe................no.

I didn't get much from your review. If you were trying to be a comic you didn't succeed. I think you summed it up best, 'I realise this is a silly thing to say.' You had one thing correct to be sure.

Oh dear, Sense of humour transplant alert! If I've offended you I'm sorry...no actually I don't give a toss. I also don't care whether you got anything from my review, it's my oppinion and I'm entitled to it. If I want to express it in a light hearted way then I certainly don't have to ask anyones permission and certainly not yours. You need to lighten up fella! You're taking things far too seriously!

I must have touched a nerve! My comment still stands. Comparing whiskey to oil? Please spare me. Plus Johnnie Walker has two 'n's. Just for future reference.

I think it's me who's touched a nerve with you. If you don't like a TV show change channels, if you don't like a review on this site click on another and don't read anymore by that person. Simple. No need to be rude and spit vitriol. Anyhoo, Warm and kind greetings to you from across the water in cheery old blighty, thats sarcasm by the way, but that will be wasted on you as well. Cheers and HAPPY tippling.

No vitriol at all here. Just post a comment that isn't stupid and has some meaning for everyone here. I'm sorry you just don't get it across the water it seems. Cheerio!

I'm fine Mark, it just must be sad to be someone who's so upset by a little innocent humour. Hope you are well. Cheers.

Bwahahaha! You have captured the essence of Red Label in your review. Perhaps the worst dram in the history of mankind.

Chuckle… About the argument rather than the review, really... Although I quite liked the review. 62 seems quite a precise and high score for something that you think tastes so undesirable though? Methinks maybe you aren't too un-partial to a few slugs of motor oil in the morning!?
