Johnnie Walker Double Black is a new, limited edition release blended Scotch whisky that delivers a complex, bold and classically Johnnie Walker flavor profile that is sure to please. Few whiskies are as exciting as Johnnie Walker Double Black and at an MSRP of $40, Johnnie Walker Double Black is one of the great values in the world of whisky. For those looking for a world class whisky at a reasonable price point, look no further. Johnnie Walker Double Black is the answer.

Nose

Johnnie Walker Double Black was created by Master Blender Jim Beveridge to complement the current Johnnie Walker range and the result is a masterful creation. A blend of both naturally smoky aged whiskies and specially selected whiskies aged in deeply charred barrels, the nose offers rich aromas of peat smoke, vanilla, orange marmalade and caramel.

Body and Palate

Johnnie Walker Double Black is rich and mouthcoating, a delicious banquet for the senses. On the palate, notes of Christmas fruitcake, plum pudding, orange zest and vanilla emerge from underneath a smoky layer of peat, creating a memorable and delicious whisky.

Finish

Johnnie Walker Double Black offers a surprisingly spry finish. Light fruit notes begin to emerge, think apple crisp, fresh Bartlett pears, vanilla scones and candied ginger before giving way to cinnamon and orange notes. The finish is long, lingering and satisfying. This is simply a world class whisky. Essential to any well stocked bar, be sure to pick up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Double Black before these limited supplies run out.
