Comment:
I am rating this as a seperate category for blends. This is my favorite blended whisky. Low price as for excelent quality. Intense oakiness and delicate hint of a smoke. Excellent job Johnnie Walker!

Nosing: Dunkle Schokolade a dusty shadow of Rauch Kokosnuss Orange Vanille

Taste: Eiche Apfel Rauch

Finish: Rauch Eiche Leder mildest hint of Jod

Comment: Johnnie Walker 12Y Black Label hints at it's blended components on the nose - peat, fruit, bitterness, oak, all present, but all somewhat dulled so as to fit together. This whisky is not a complicated puzzle, but it is a well-designed assemblage of pieces.

Again, an edgeless experience on the palate. An echo of peat smoke through the finish provides a measure of character beyond the standard oak and mild sweetness one might expect.

Johnnie Walker 12Y Black Label may not be an exciting dram, but it doesn't fall down in any respect, either.
