Released initially as a travel retail exclusive, Johnnie Walker Double Black was rolled out in 2011 for general release. Created by Master Blender Jim Beveridge as a darker, smokier interpretation of the Johnnie Walker Black Label by including more Islay whisky and casks that have been heavily charred. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: A delicious scent of sweet smoke and cloves.
Palate: An unmistakably peaty taste – rich with raisins, fresh apples and a tropical orange flavour combined with creamy vanilla.
Finish: A wonderfully long, warming finish. The smoldering spice from oak-aged casks makes for a powerful and lingering smokiness.
