"70cl / 40.0% - Originally released to the travel retail market, 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."
The taste is smoky, with creamy vanilla, wood and sweet dried fruits
After hand-selecting a number of whiskies defined by hints of smouldering charcoal, crisp ash and burnt timber, the blend is barrelled to mature in deep-charred old oak casks
The result is a smokier, more intense experience, but with deep, dark roots in a rich blend
Johnnie Walker Double Black has won Gold and Silver respectively at the International Spirits Challenge and International Wine and Spirits Competition in both 2011 and 2012
Johnnie Walker Double Black is best served with water, this is the perfect way to release the smoky flavours
