TOP 50 REVIEWERon November 25, 2011
This Scotch was a mystery to me; I always thought that Johnnie Walker only came in colors. Turns out, they have this little quiet Scotch called Swing.

Swing is a soft, delicate, smooth Scotch. There is a lot of honey flavor along with an incredible smoothness. This Scotch is very easy to drink. There is no smoky flavor at all.

So where does it fit in the color scheme of things, someplace close to Gold. The price point is slightly more expensive than Gold. Where Red, Black, Double Black, and Green make a wonderful smoky progression, culminating with Blue, Swing stands almost alone. Its cousin is Gold, but Swing is much more refined and maybe a little bit sweeter.

I love this Scotch, and I am a died in the wool smoke fan - Green is one of my favorite every day drinking Scotch. I really dislike Gold, it is too thick and the edges are too sharp and unfinished. Swing hits a very happy medium with those edges smoothed off. There are no really sharp flavors in this Scotch, just a lovely sweet honey flavor.

From the Johnnie Walker website, Swing was supposed to be made for sailing ships, to take to the new worlds and sell. The shape of the bottle was supposed to keep it upright in a ship. Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the bottle. The maritime story is nice, but I much prefer Johnnie Walker's square bottle. The sad thing, this looks like a Crown Royal or Pinch bottle, and frankly was the reason I'd never bought it before. Don't judge a book by its cover; the contents are far better than Crown Royal or Pinch.

If you like smooth Scotch, this is a winner.
