An interesting twist on Johnnie Walker Black Label, Double Black was rolled out for general release in 2011 after a successful launch in travel retail. Double Black adds to the normal Black Label profile by including more Islay whisky and casks that have been heavily charred, giving a more intense flavour with a greater emphasis on smoke while keeping true to the sophisticated Johnnie Walker style.
Appearance: Deep amber with bright gold flecks.
Aroma: Flinty, orange blossom honey with a slight whiff of struck match and linseed oil.
Taste: Starts sweet and quickly turns dry. At the beginning it’s honeyed with a touch of smoky bacon then dries with tar, hint of bonfire and charcoal, moving to honeycomb.
Aftertaste: Smoky notes waft around the finish which has a touch of dried apple sprinkled with black pepper.
