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.

This is one of my favorites and my go to drink of choice. You can never go wrong with Black Label on the rocks smooth and complex with a great finish when ice blends and melts.
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.
