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.

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!

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.

Nosing: VanillaPeat SmokeFruitApple
Light, smoky and sweet on nose. Plenty of vanila in the first plan with some fruity nose.

Taste: FruitVanillaOak
Mild, oily and sweet. Gets a bit stronger and oaky at the back of tongue and palate.

Finish: OakChocolate
Rather long finish with strong oaky notes and a bit of dark chocolate.

Comment:
Very sippable blended whisky, with pretty good price in relation to quality. I like to drink it to a good book.

3 stars out of 5.
