Single malt drinkers try this & you wont look back!
Granted there are different tastes in single malt but if you're a peaty, smoky flavour person you really need to try this! I've been drinking Laphroaig 10yr old & cask strength for some time, then our son bought me a bottle of this as he knew I had a taste for JW 12yr old, but this Double Black just blew my socks off! So its blended, & Laphroaig is a single, well I defy anyone to tell the difference apart from the cheaper price of the Double Black by far! Oh my its yummy! Ok i'm a Sassenach & to top it all I come from the smoke so theres plenty of you English out there to compare with & other peeps from around this old world of ours who have a taste for the amber nectar. there may well be over 100 whiskies in bonnie Scotland but im telling you now, you've just gotta try Double Black, but beware you've gotta be a man to take it. After the 4th or 5th one give it a write up, if you can still see straight lol & also tell Johnnie Walkers what a great customer service they have! (way above Laphroaig's.)
Island style blend
Very decent JW NAS blend with similar elements to an Island scotch like Talisker or Highland Park. Good on the nose and palate but rather short, dry and peppery in the finish. A few drops of water soften this and bring out a little fruitiness to boot. If you can afford a Talisker 10 then buy that instead but this is a decent dram at

I bought this in the black friday sale alongside a few other whiskys. I bought this specifically as I was curious over what smokey whiskys would taste like and the reviews made me curious. Therefore first of all. I will say I think after trying them, Smokey whisky's have become my new favourite type of whisky. On opening this and smelling the contents you get a very strong overwhelming smokey smell from it. But taking a sip you get a regular vanilla flavoured taste with no smokiness whatsoever to it. To be honest I was thinking to myself what is going on here for a moment as the smell was very deceptive as the smell was smokeyness. But the taste had none whatsoever, this was until a few seconds in. Then suddenly a strong burning smokey aftertaste hits you hard. Overall this is a very nice whisky and I am pleased I bought it. But it is not a patch on the Highland Park Viking Tribe I also bought. That whisky is incredibly smooth smokey whisky with no burn to it whatsoever. I will say to mention it in this review. I also bought the regular Johnny Walker black. That one has no smokeiness smell or taste to it whatsoever. It also has no burn. So if you are after a smokey whisky. Then get the double black.

Johnnie Walker Black Label Blended Scotch Whisky, 70cl
- The ultimate blend of the Scottish whiskies
- Regarded as the pinnacle of the blenders art
A good soft landing for a new scotch drinker
JW Black probably has my vote for top whisky to try when you're brand new to the world of scotch. That's not to say that the more experienced drinker wouldn't enjoy it. Gentle on the nose, gentle on the palate and gentle on the wallet, there's a reason this one sells by the boat load! For what it's worth, on the nose I get a pepper/vanilla vibe with a smidgen of peat if I go looking. Palate is pretty fresh for me, and actually a little lemony/green apple. Finish has almost no burn, which is a running theme with the Walker group! But that's subjective, and you'll probably taste something else! Yes it's a blend. Shock and horror!! If that sort of thing turns you off, you're missing out! You hear a lot of suggestions for a first dram. Monkey Shoulder springs to mind, but is more expensive and for me isn't quite as friendly. JW red is much maligned for whatever reason but is very cheap! For me, this is a good combination of value for money and taste. And heck, mix it with something if you want. Just enjoy it!!
Absolutely superb blend
This is probably the most well-rounded whisky I've ever tasted; there are notes of smoke, sweetness, malt and wood that are balanced in a way so perfect that it's almost unnerving. There is the tiniest burn on the finish which reminds you that you're drinking a strong spirit - most likely from the grain whiskies the blenders add to eke out the malts - but I quite enjoy this as I find entirely smooth blends like Ballantines and Canadian Club slightly offputting in their lack of body! Please do not be snobbish over the brand - the absolute rotgut that is Red Label puts off many prospective JW drinkers, this is an entirely different and much more delicious beast. I paid £20 for it, which I realise is a real bargain and may rose-tint my view, but I'd be happy enough paying a bit more. At its usual price of £28-30, it's not such a great value proposition as it has to compete with the likes of Laphroaig and Talisker, against which it just doesn't hold up and as such it's only worth 4 stars at that price. That said it's much less divisive than either of those peaty maritime monsters, and I'd say you'd be hard pressed to find a whisky drinker who wouldn't appreciate this bottle.

Nice Whisky but the double black is nicer
I bought the Johnny Walker Red edition some months back on a deal. And I will say it is by far the nastiest, vilest thing I have ever tasted in my entire life. This made me swear of Johnny Walker for life as it was so bad. But the black friday deals hit and I seen the reviews about the double black saying it was a very smokey whisky. So I figured, what the hey and ordered the black and double black hoping they were both smokey whisky's. I can say, they are both after trying one after the other very nice whisky's and lightyears above the Red. The regular black has no smokey taste or smell to it whatsoever. to be honest I was getting a strong coffee sort of smell from it and it smelt different to every other whisky I had tried. On tasting this it was incredibly smooth. To be honest I was thinking a bit too smooth. But this would be good stuff to get you drunk as there is no harshness to this whatsoever (unlike the double black). Overall this is a nice whisky to try but I would not pay over £18 for this given Woodford Reserve is currently £20 and that is literally the best thing on planet earth in terms of smooth pleasant whisky's. I will also say, even though it had a very harsh burn to it. I prefer the smokey burning taste of the double black.

Black is better
To put it very simply: this is not really worth paying the additional £10-15 compared to Black Label. They are very comparable drops indeed, with Green Label expressing more seaweed and vegetation notes on the palate with an oilier mouthfeel compared with Black Label's very malty overtones with faint smokiness appearing in the background. I was genuinely disappointed here: I expected to be if not blown away, at least satisfied with my purchase. Not a bad whisky by any means, merely a good but overpriced blend. I was initially far too harsh on this whisky, it really suffered from the 'neck pour' effect that results from not having enough air circulating around the spirit to let it mellow out. Now it's been sitting 2/3 full for a week or so, it's far richer, more rounded and more pleasant. It is in no way worth £40 though: while there is clearly a lot of aged malt in this, a definite bitterness at the end betrays the inclusion of an amount of grain whisky, to save on costs. You can get some fantastic single malts that lack this entirely for the same money or less. Definitely worth a try at £30, alright at £35, bad deal at £40.
I’ve always avoided blended, I guess in part to snobbery. I also refused to buy JW due to all the marketing and thought it would be total crap. In the end I gave in, my days I’m actually blown away. I didn’t realise the quality single malts that go into this and the result is an outstanding flavour. I take it all back and I’m going to buy another bottle. Simply, simply, lovely. I'm now on my third bottle of this, it led me to try peated whisky which is now a favorite. Coming back to this I tasted something I didn't notice before. I couldn't place it, then I read the notes and cedar it was. Clear as day. This gets better. I hope it doesn't run out.

Vibrant, fresh, spicy.
Johnnie Walker Green is certainly an interesting whisky, quite the enigma in the JW range I believe. As someone who generally has the full range in the cupboard, unopened Blue aside, I find it sits nicely at its price point and for some would provide a much more interesting dram than the Gold. Johnnie Walker have always done their utmost to keep the range as consistent as possible for as long as possible, with varying degrees of success. It's much harder at the 15/18 year old end of the scale, where the whiskies required to make the blend are scarcer and more difficult to source in large quantities. The Gold has changed wildly over the years, from No Age Statement varieties to the classic 18, with a smoothness and richness of good matured single malts. The Blue has always been its own beast, but the Green has managed to keep its vibrant, youthful exuberance mixed with spicy experience. It's somewhat unremarkable on the nose, but on the palate it comes alive. It's peppery and spicy, quite a feisty little fella, with a long lingering finish. There's definite notes of peach and other pitted fruits, all working in harmony to create a surprisingly coherent flavour profile. It now states proudly on its label which are the four main distilleries malts contained within, just to convince even the hardiest of single malt snobs that blends have their place. Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore and Caol Ila (which has long been a favourite across the range as it packs a punch). Blending has always been a part of high-end Scotch Whisky and Johnnie Walker have certainly got it right with the latest bottling of the green. My only gripe is the escalating price which is now more like the Gold price point of a few years ago. Still, if you're choosing between this and the Gold you can't go far wrong picking the Green if spicy, vibrant, exciting flavours are your thing.
One of the best selling Scotch whiskies in the world is Johnnie Walker. It’s smooth, complex and easy to drink, and the distillery has several types. Different types are labeled differently, each representing different flavours. The classic Red Label is paired with ginger ale while the Johnny Walken Blue is better paired with an Old Fashioned cocktail. There are many variations to choose from as well.
It was originally bottled in Kilmarnock, but in 2012, Diageo took over its bottling operations there. The new facility in Leven and Shieldhall in Glasgow is still home to the brand, but with a new global marketing campaign, based on research from several months. The campaign is designed to make Johnnie Walker stand out in the sea of tartan. In fact, by 1920, the brand had reached 120 countries. Even Coca Cola hadn’t crossed the Atlantic, and Johnnie Walker was a hit in the US and Canada.
Today, Johnnie Walker is a global brand with a portfolio of whiskies from around the world. From the Blue Label to the Black Label, the range is wide and varied. As of 2013, the Black Label is the most popular choice among Johnnie Walker consumers. It is an exceptional blend of grain and malt whiskies, and is priced affordably for a fine taste. It was originally called Walker’s Old Highland Whisky, but was re-launched in 1909. It contains forty single malt and grain whiskies, aged for at least 12 years.
The Highland Park is the mountaintop of the Johnnie Walker line. This ultra-rare blend of whiskies comes from extinct Diageo distilleries. The secret to its smoky taste and malty nature lies in masterful barrel selection. This premium Scotch whiskey is the perfect choice for a special occasion. However, the higher the price, the more expensive it is. So, you might want to consider the Blue Label before making a purchase.
The first Johnnie Walker Black Label was released in the year 1819. The Black Label is the most popular of all the expressions. It features 40 malt and grain whiskies from Diageo’s portfolio. Its color-coded labels make it easy to distinguish which one is which. It is possible to get the most expensive versions. And there is no need to worry about the price!
The Black and Red labels were introduced in 1931. The Black and Blue label differ in their colour, while the Double Black refers to the smoke and peatier version. In the 1930s, the company expanded its range with the introduction of the Blue Label and Gold Label. In 1996, the company released its first Pure Malt version. It’s now sold in more than 70 countries. This whisky is still a popular choice among drinkers in the United States.
