"Blended to break the rules, Double Black boasts an edgy confidence in flavor that separates it from its balanced relative, Johnnie Walker Black Label. It is not simply a darker version of Black Label, for it cannot be defined by color alone. Nevertheless, the two blends are intrinsically linked. As any discriminating drinker can see, they share DNA - in their smoky nose, unmistakable spice and slight tones of dried fruit. But the similarities end there. With this blend, the exclusive taste trumps all. It's no wonder whisky critics and aficionados have snatched up the limited number of bottles produced, making it even more elusive and mysterious. But rest assured, the "mischievous brother" won't be gone for long - just remember that flavor of this intensity takes time and great care to craft.

Johnnie Walker Double Black is the newest addition to the Johnnie Walker family of Scotch whiskies. It was formerly only available in global duty-free shops, but it's just been released, for a limited time, to the mass market.
Double Black starts with the Black Label template, and from there, it adds peatier malts and malts aged in heavily charred oak barrels - the result being a smokier dram than the original. And while the Black Label is aged for 12 years, Johnnie Walker Double Black carries no age statement.
On the nose, Double Black offers aromas of peat smoke, oak and dried fruits. Take a sip and notice more of that smoke, plus some pleasant tropical fruit notes, vanilla and spice. It's quite drinkable, with an easy-going mouthfeel and a dry finish, but it's a bit heavy-handed on the oak, with lots of char coming through.
This blended Scotch, matured in deep-charred old oak casks ? features intensely smoky aromas and flavors, although honey sweetness and mellow almond peek through. Golden in hue, with a silky feel.
