Johnnie Walker Black Label's iconic square bottle makes it one of the world's most recognisable Scotch whiskies - and it's also one of whisky critic Jim Murray's favourite blends: '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'

Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • 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.

    Cant go wrong with good ole' Johnnie Black. There are definitely better whiskys out there but this is always a safe choice.

    It's the Honda Accord of whisky. Great value and reliable.

    I get a coffee taste from black label which i enjoy and do not get from many others.

    This is sweet without being cloying, warm, fruity, rich nose, smooth right on through. The alcohol is entirely subdued to the flavour. I didn't notice any smoke, but I didn't miss it.

    A great daily dram. Very competent, and immensely superior to red.

    Now we're talking! Full bodied, smoky, dried fruits and some sweet notes. Very well made. A classic.

    Safe and dull. It's very smooth, and has a pleasant silky mouth feel, but I'm finding it very one dimensional, and frankly, boring. Just not enough going on for me.

    Black Label is a very solid, consistent whisky. Nothing about this is overpowering, but nothing is boring or disappointing, either. Its always good, every single time. Great for new whisky drinkers and those with seasoned tongues alike.

    I love it, maybe too much.

    Not smooth enough, it sticks to the back of your throat and feels as though it can’t decide what it wants to be.

    I have to agree with Daniel and T-Bone on this one, this is not a great whisky. If you're looking for readily available smooth-drinking scotch, I'd also recommend Glenlivet 12.

    Smooth and a little smoky and sweet at the same time.

    A delicious mix of some of the finest malts, creating a wonderful tipple that agrees with my rather fussy tongue. I first received a bottle of Black Label as a gift from my partner Ryan to celebrate our first Christmas together and it had become one of my favourite drams. I prefer this to the blue or red labels. Splendid drop.

    I HAVE DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN, THIS IS THE SMOOTHEST WHISKY THAT I HAVE EVER TASTED. I WILL USE BLACK LABEL FROM NOW ON.

    Better than what I was expecting. Better than most whiskies at this, or a similar price. Could be a bit smokier, but not bad. Excellent body and finish. Try it out if you haven't already.
