Johnnie Walker Black Label

Born in the 1870s Johnnie Walker Blended Scotch Whisky is regarded as the benchmark by which all other Scotch Whiskeys are compared. Named ‘Black Label’ in 1909 each batch is aged for 12 years, the master blenders create a perfect balance of a rich full flavor yet elegantly smooth.

The Color is a perfectly rich and golden. The captivating aroma is slightly sweet, buttery, and balanced with smoke. It has a smooth mouth feel which instantly fills your palate with grain and oak notes with hints of vanilla, cocoa, and butter. The finish is smooth and slightly dry with a final hint of smoke.
Enjoying Johnnie walker neat or on the rocks is preferred, but the “Black Label” is great in many cocktails below are a couple of my favorites
