Producer's Tasting Notes
Nose: Rich dried fruits from the European oak sherry casks.
Palate: Hints of smooth creamy toffee linger on the tip of your tongue.
Finish: A sophisticated, smoky finish - the signature of all Johnnie Walker blends.
Tasting Notes by Mark Gillespie, World Whiskies Awards 2012
Nose: Soft and complex with touches of toasted oak, honey, coconut, and figs.
Palate: Spicy with a nice allspice note on top and caramel syrup sweetness underneath.
Finish: Hints of lemon-lime citrus develop later, and last through the long finish.

I normally drink Black Label but later started having Double Black which seemed even better and became my choice. However, lately I found a weird taste in Double Black on account of which I did not enjoy the drink and as such am disappointed with this development.
''If there is a silkier delivery on the market today, I have not seen it: this is sublime stuff...one of the world''s most masterful whiskies back in all its complex glory''
deep heather nose....continues onto the palate then transforms into a well balance, mellow sweetness. finishes floral, not herbal. a slight tingle, not burn as it fades gently. not really getting the smoke...which is actually great (at least with this well-crafted blend)
Nice and tasty whisky...
Got into whiskey about 2 years ago and this has been on my list to try. Bought a bottle today, on offer at my local supermarket and i''m not disappointed. Sweet arrival, very smooth no burn finish then a campfire fire aftertaste which lingers on the throat. Very Good, will buy again
I have tried a wide variety of whiskies; Irish, Scottish, Kentucky, etc, etc. I've had my fair share of plain, I've also had my fair share of exquisite, namely single malt. I remember saying to myself, it's a hard task to find an enjoyable blended whisky, and it is, but the search has found this little gem amongst a pile of rubble, this drink won't burn the throats of beginners, and yet it will still live up to the needs and expectations of the most experienced whisky drinkers. I find the drink to slide down my throat, as if it were silk, then the taste hits you, and it's smoky, then you are left with a delicious aftertaste of that renowned whisky taste. A true classic. If you're considering to buy this beverage, expect a smoky smell, mixed with the obvious sherry casks, expect a smoky taste, expect a drink which can proudly stand above other blended whiskys. Expect to fall in love with the first nip.
All around excellent go-to blend. Not too sweet, full-flavored, slightly smokey, with a crisp floral aftertaste.
I mostly drank single malts.. until I tried JW Black Label. Hands down my favourite scotch. It's my "go to" whisky. I've had whisky at five times the price but for me nothing compares to this. A fantastic blend. Always have a bottle in the cupboard. 10/10.
This, and the double black JW, happen to be my favorite blends. Its a good starter to get you into the intense peaty whiskies of Islay (pronounced I-La)and Skye. This is a good Christmastime dram, think roasted chestnuts and eggnog with nutmeg. I also recommend if you liked Black Label: Talisker 10, Lagavulin 16, Laphraoig 10, Oban 10, and Glenlivet 15, and 18. Because mellow scotches are for lasses.
What a blend! Star of the JW range and can be compared even even with the best single malts. I don't care much about blends because of low quality, but this is one is unique. My agony is that this could so much more with 46 %, no color added etc, but we all know JW will never, never, do it.
