At its heart, Johnnie Walker Double Black still retains the standard Black Label's style of whisky: a peated blended whisky. What they've done with the Double Black is let the whisky mature in deeply charred oak casks to intensify the smoky characteristic. That's right, they've doubled down (had to be said).

Tasting Notes

"Johnnie Walker has clearly turned the smoke knob to 11. Coal. Tar. Campfire. This might sound a bit intimidating, but if you chose to continue this journey, you'll find a nougat and honey center as well. But that nougat and honey center is wrapped in a cloak of charred smoke."
