"THE SAVOY, THE EVEREST OF DELUXE WHISKIES" — JIM MURRAY, AUTHOR, WHISKY BIBLE
"A MASTERPIECE, THE MICHELANGELO'S DAVID OF THE BLENDER'S ART, THE VERY BEST IN ITS CATEGORY" — CHARLES MACLEAN, WHISKY WRITER
A 12 year old blended whisky, one of the world's most famous blends. Johnnie Walker Black is a blend of around 40 whiskies, very well put together.
Regarded by experts as the ultimate Scotch deluxe whisky, the benchmark by which all others are measured. With its origins in the 1870s Old Special Highland Whisky, Johnnie Walker Black Label simply became "Black Label" in 1909.
The nose is quite full. There are notes of winter spice and treacle, hints of white pepper and a little citrus. The palate is quite rich and full. There are notes of wood smoke and dry spice, hints of barley and cereal with creamy toffee and a distinct herbal note. The finish is quite fruity and long with a note of sultanas and mixed peels.
Each bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label is two decades in the planning, draws whisky from the finest distilleries across Scotland and is aged in the finest whisky casks. Each whisky is matured in a slightly different way, due to the intricacies of wood, climate and location. The Master Blender's skill is in blending these whiskies together to create a whisky with an extraordinary range of flavor.
A continued focus on quality and style has resulted in Johnnie Walker Black Label earning numerous awards. Today the blend remains as rich and smooth as it was when John Walker's son and grandson were Master Blenders.
