A taste of Johnnie Walker

Everyone knows about Johnnie Walker Black, so who would need to be guided through the experience? This masterful blend riches over 40 different single malt whiskies all with a minimum age of 12 years. It’s no wonder Johnnie Walker Black is their best selling brand, a remarkable smoothness that seems to build with flavors after each sip is hard to beat.
However, its cousin, Double Black, delivers an interesting twist on Johnnie Walker Black Label. 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 flavor with a greater emphasis on smoke. The nose offers rich aromas of vanilla, a little tar, citrus and malt, and amazingly a touch of barbecue sauce! When I first tried it, the smoky notes were so prominent that they completely overshadowed the other flavors.
For whisky lovers who prefer smoky, Johnnie Walker has the answer, the Double Black. Be aware that supplies of this unique blend are limited, so be sure to pick up a bottle before these limited supplies run out!600730_457354867689961_741385705_n
