Johnnie Walker Double Black70cl / 40%
- Blended Scotch Whisky
An interesting twist on Johnnie Walker Black Label, Double Black was rolled out for general release in 2011 after a successful launch in travel retail. Double Black adds to the normal Black Label profile by including more Islay whisky and casks that have been heavily charred, giving a more intense flavour with a greater emphasis on smoke while keeping true to the sophisticated Johnnie Walker style.

Johnnie Walker Double Black Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy A
Nose: Fairly light but oily, with dry oak, honey and gently stony smoke.
Palate: Fuller bodied than the nose suggests, moving from sweet smoke and floral honey to cracked stone, tar and old bonfires.
Finish: Medium length, with soft smoke, woody spice and charred oak.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Palate: The flavour is full bodied and complex with the signature Johnnie Walker peat smoke shining brightly through rich raisins and sultanas. Apples, pears and orange zest bring freshness while creamy vanilla and spice bring a softness and sweetness to the tongue.
Finish: The long warming finish combines spicy oak tannins and lingering smoke.
Tasting Notes by Simon Difford (Diffordsguide.com)Appearance: Deep amber with bright gold flecks.
Aroma: Flinty, orange blossom honey with a slight whiff of struck match and linseed oil.
Taste: Starts sweet and quickly turns dry. At the beginning it’s honeyed with a touch of smoky bacon then dries with tar, hint of bonfire and charcoal, moving to honeycomb.
Aftertaste: Smoky notes waft around the finish which has a touch of dried apple sprinkled with black pepper.

Always my go to scotch for many years simply the best the double smoke.
This is a great whiskey, one of JW''s finest! If you like the smokey islay taste then look no further. For the money, nothing competes.
Lovely sweet first taste. Superb quality.
JW HAS NOT BEEN MY FIRST CHOICE OVER THE YEARS...BUT RECEIVED A BOTTLE FOR CHRISTMAS. WOW, THIS IS A FINE TASTING DRINK. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWERS IN THAT IT THAT IT HAS A PLEASANT SMOKEY FLAVOUR. I WILL DRINK THIS AGAIN.
Very nice blended scotch.fabulous in taste,main thing is that malted very nicely.
One of my favorite blended whiskys ! The bottle says " A Rich , Intense, Smokey Blend Containing Whisky Matured In Deep Charred Old Oak Casks" ! The description is absolutely perfect !
Had my first experience with JW Double Black this week and it was a most enjoyable one. When this gift bottle is finished, I will most certainly replace it.
Took a trip to Japan and was roaming thru the duty free store..I'm pretty much a Jamesons drinker, though I like Black & Glenfiddich as well..A friend said "you should try Double Black"..I bought a bottle and on first sip, immediate smoky, charred, smooth taste..Just excellent..After this bottle is done I'm after another for sure..Really good whiskey
Lovely drop of whisky, I am currently working my way through the j.w collection the double black follows On nicely from the standard black lable. In my opinion has a slightly more of a "burnt, woody" after taste but still very smooth.
