Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old

Whisky Type: Blended Scotch Whisky

Bottle Size: 750ml

Alcohol by Volume: 40%

Notes: Johnnie Walker Black Label, is one of the classic Victorian Era blended Scotches. It's probably one of the best known whiskies in the world. The Black Label has a peatier character than most other blends, due in part to the inclusion of whiskies from Caol Ila, Lagavulin, and Talsiker in the mix. It's still a well balanced and great tasting whisky, and it tends to be consistently stocked in my whisky cabinet!

Nose: It starts with a smokey sweetness, followed by a hint of fruit and peppery spice.

Taste: The smoky malt and grain mix well with the developing apple and vanilla flavors that follow.

Finish: A lingering apple note, with the smoke giving way to a honey finish.

My Personal Ranking: 84/100 (Blend Score)
