Where would something like Johnny Walker fall into these characterizations, ie. smokey, peaty, etc.

The few occasions I’ve had to drink scotch whiskey has always been with clients, lawyers, and the Johnny Walkers (blue, black, etc) seem to be very popular choices among those groups. I know those carry a high price tag, but are they really good? Are they something a noob should even be attempting to appreciate? To me they taste like the insides of a burnt cask, but what do I know?

Great write ups. I’ll definitely have to give some of these a go. Balanced flavour and “not smokey” are both appealing descriptions to me.
