Brand: Johnnie Walker
Strength: 43% alc/vol
Double Black combines the rich, malty flavour of Black Label with slightly peatier whisky and casks that were more heavily charred. The result is a toasty, smoky whisky with Johnnie Walker’s usual rich, malty core.
Nose: Fairly light but oily, with dry oak, honey and gently stony smoke.
Palate: Fuller bodied than the nose suggests, moving from sweet smoke and floral honey to cracked stone, tar and old bonfires.
Finish: Medium length, with soft smoke, woody spice and charred oak.
