Customer Rating
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

  • 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 (

    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.

    Was my fav blend until I had Green Label! JWDB is a fantastic whisky though and more flavour than Black Label. It's a bridge between the more pungent and powerful Islay monsters (which I love).

    I am in between a 4 and 5. The smokiness of Highland Park, but the taste of Laphroaig 10, but with a bit more sweetness than a traditional Islay. I would even say that this is a good intro to Islay.

    Call it Lagavulin Lite. After half a bottle of Lagavulin 16 over many months, and now coming back to my second bottle of JWDB, the influence of the former is undeniable. It's like they took JWB and gave it a huge dash of L16.

    I drink this stuff by the fifth, it is heavy on the wood and smoke my hands down favorite scotch, and it is not better then the blue they are on two different highways.

    Hands down best value; beats out green label in smokiness and complexity. Initially I thought the double black moniker was just clever marketing but there S real substance to this very tasty scotch

    First off...if you are saying this is better than Blue- you're nuts. Blue is blue, if you're a fan of blends there's not much that touches the complexity of blue. It's unfair to DB to compare the two. That being said double black may not have the complexity but DAMN does it have the smoke and an unreal sweetness that just works. I live in Canada- DB is hard to get a hold of, pretty much only get it at duty free shops. I got a 1L bottle as a gift from a duty free in Dominican. I can't stop drinking the stuff, it's the best blend in the price range and beats green, Johnnie 21 and even more expensive blends like Royal Salute. Props to Johnnie Walker for having multiple elite blends that fit in as a family AND stand alone as great individual offerings.

    For a really smokey scotch like this it's so smooth , it's was my first scotch. it's above average ,well balanced ; as it's smokey as it's sweet and woody , it's too strong for any cocktail it's for drinking in peace and relaxing.
