By Matt Goldstein

Johnnie Walker Black Label dates back to 1790 but officially became the Black Label in 1909.  One hundred years later, Johnnie Walker Black is the #1 selling premium blended scotch whiskey in the world.  Although there is no whiskey inside the blend that is younger than 12 years, Johnnie Walker claims that each bottle is at least 20 years in the making, from the selection of the oak for cask aging to drawing from Scotch whiskies all over Scotland, drawing from West coast malts to East coast scotch. 

Tasting Notes of Johnnie Walker Black:  The scent is a light peat; the flavor is a smooth, medium to heavy peat.  There is a full flavor malt aftertaste, slightly dry and thin with medium warmth.  Johnny Walker Black is a classic and complex blended scotch whisky and sets the standard for any smoky style blend.  Give us a glass of neat Johnnie Walker anytime and we’re a happy happy whisky drinker.
