Johnnie Walker Black Label

blend_joh146.jpgPlease take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Golden amber.

Nose:

Slightly sweet and floral moving into more smokey and spicy territory.

Palate:

Smooth and creamy, almost toffee like to start followed by some smoke and spice and a nutty quality.

Finish:

Very nutty to finish with more of that smoke.

Overall:

As my first introduction to the Johnnie Walker range I found this really enjoyable and I can see why their whisky is so popular. I was tasting this at a Whisky Lounge Blending Workshop though and would like the opportunity to spend more time on this in the future.

Notes:

Taken from the Johnnie Walker Website:

FLAVOURS

Johnnie Walker Black Label is rich, complex and incredibly well-balanced, full of dark fruits, sweet vanilla and signature smokiness.

Blended exclusively from whiskies matured for at least 12 years, it brings together flavours from the four corners of Scotland to create an experience that is complex, deep and rewarding. Johnnie Walker Black Label rolls decadently over the tongue, releasing intense sweet vanillas that give way to orange zest and aromas of spice and raisins. The finish is unbelievably smooth and layered with rich smoke, peat and malt.
