Almost every bar on the planet has Johnnie Walker Black Label available for a reason: it's a solid and reliable choice. On the nose, you get distant Caol Ila peatiness, rich honey notes, apples and citrus fruits. Not a very intense aroma - but altogether pleasant. Peppery Talisker-spiciness dominates the arrival, while the taste of this Blended Scotch is surprisingly substantial with fruity sweetness, cinnamon and well-measured cask influence. The finish lingers with delicate peat smoke and mild bitterness. An easy sipper without offensive grain whisky influence.

Nosing: Fruit Peat Smoke Vanilla

Taste: Peat Smoke Oil Peat Smoke Oil Vanilla

Finish: Fruit Peat Smoke Oil

Comment: I just can't seem to find myself enjoying a vanilla note with an oily note that feels coated and tainted with this smoke. I don't rag on those who enjoy it, however, for me, this feels more aggressive in my mouth, almost to the point where my mouth feels dried out. Just not for me, but I'm happy I got to buy a small bottle and try it out!
