A much-loved and respected 12 year old blended Scotch, Johnnie Walker Black Label is one of the world's most famous blends. Born in 1909, Black Label is a blend of around 40 whiskies(!), with a distinctive mellow smoky note. It’s even one of Jim Murray’s favourites, and his opinion as we know is worth its weight in (liquid) gold, with the whisky winning Best Blended Scotch (5-12 Years) in the Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2019.
Nose: Winter spice and treacle, hints of white pepper and a little citrus.
Palate: Rich and full with notes of wood smoke and dry spice, hints of barley and cereal with creamy toffee and a distinct herbal note.
Finish: Quite fruity and long with a note of sultanas and mixed peels.
