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.

    It's a good whiskey with a fair price. The taste is of smoke and creamy toffee. The aftertaste is sweet enough! Good choice!

    This is a great blended scotch. I have no idea how they go from Red Lable to this but they are totally different. I generally choose Laphroaig or Ardbeg but if those are not available I can always count on Black Lable.

    Frankly, I liked Red Label more than Black. Somehow it lacks the peaty tones for me. It's silky, more "rounded" on the tongue with a hint of raisins...

    Good smoky blend. Not overpowering and leaves a nice aftertaste. JWDB is better though!

    Quite a few people gave this good reviews so I decided to give it a try while my Nikka pure malt is in transit. (Excellent smooth whisky by the way) One question. WHY. Burned the back of my throat and the aftertaste had me wondering if I just licked burnt rubber. I’m not a big drinker (well wasn’t, until I tried Macallan 12 year and various Nikka whiskeys) so I cant claim to be a whisky expert, but I can definitely taste the difference in complexity when comparing this to other whiskeys I’ve tried. I read a few reviews that said Teacher’s was cheaper but tastier and I’d have to agree. Give this one a pass... that is unless you enjoy the taste of used eraser...

    Caricature of scotch, it’s not awful but not even in the same building as Glenlivet 12. For 2/3 the price Dewar’s 12 is a little better.

    Was a Crown Royal man for years . At age 58 tried Johnny Walker Black Label for the first time, now my bottle of Crown Royal is collecting dust in the back of the cabinet.

    I tried a mini bottle of this and really liked it. Nice and strong with good flavour, I was very impressed.

    Johnnie Walker Black Label is my tried and true liquor. It has a mild nose, with a deep smokey/peat flavor, with a warm butterscotch finish, and hints of vanilla and orange. I find it best served as a 2 fl.oz. pour with a single ice cube in it. If you are not a fan of smokey/peat flavor then this is not for you, but for those who like a robust flavor, it is a dream come true. The price can be a little steep some places, but it’s worth every penny for the beauty and pleasure of a perfectly blended scotch Whiskey.

    JWBL is consistent. That's its best feature. I've been drinking this for years and enjoy it. Good price point, made well, and aged 12 years and over.

    A bit pricey for what you get, mild smokey taste. Very warm but settles nice, sweet smelling and nice after taste after a few minutes. For a blended whiskey it’s not too bad

    Could this be the most overrated whisky ever! If it's a bit of smoke and peat your after at this level then save yourself the money and try this back to back with Teachers. Can't believe anybody would choose JWBL.

    I have some 12 yr old that I have had at least 9 years so it is 20-21 years old and I don't know how old it was when I got it. The mother of a friend of mine closed down her liqour store in Barrets Station, Texas. I don't know how long she had it. It sure was good. I've still got two more bottles.

    The nose is a little weak, but the palate is filled with indescribable wood smoke it's like sitting right next a fireplace but you like drinking it.
