Johnnie Walker Double Black is inspired by the iconic flavours of Johnnie Walker Black Label and turns them up to create a blend of unprecedented intensity. Strongly influenced by powerful West Coast and Island whiskies, Johnnie Walker Double Black is best enjoyed with water to unlock its complex layers of smouldering spice and smoke. An impressive blend to share, whatever the occasion.
Producer’s Tasting Notes
The flavour is full bodied and complex with the signature Johnnie Walker peat smoke shining brightly through rich raisins and sultanas. Apples, pears and orange zest bring freshness while creamy vanilla and spice bring a softness and sweetness to the tongue.
The long warming finish combines spicy oak tannins and lingering smoke.
In 1857, Alexander Walker — Johnnie Walker’s eldest son — inherited the store and began improving its selection of single malt Scotch whiskies. In addition, Alexander had apprenticed with a tea merchant in Glasgow and there, had learned the art of blending tea. Under his stewardship, the House of Walker began blending whisky and bottling it in an iconic, square bottle adorned with a slanted label.
