Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old Reviews

They Fixed Single Malt; a Perfect Blend from a Reformed Single Malt Snob

I'm an old Scotch guy -- Scotch being the poison I picked decades ago, and reformed single malt snob -- partial to the Islays. Not long ago at a not s' well-stocked watering hole I found myself in need of a dram. Black was the best they had on offer. Okay -- what the hell? Blown away. Love at first nip. Quick! To my phone! To see if it's okay to like the stuff and order it in front of pals! I see world renowned whisk(e)y guy, Jim Murray, raves about it. Gives it a 94! TOTALLY agree with his bang-on assessment of this liquid. This stuff is a litmus test. IF you like this perfect "ancient" (1909) blend, you know your Scotch. IF you poo poo it? You're probably still in your single malt phase. You'll outgrow it -- eventually. I neither do nosings nor spout off imaginary tasting notes of this and that I never seem to detect. (Smells like -- hooch! Tastes like -- Scotch!) BUT if I was, I'd say it noses of raisins, and it tastes like chocolate covered sour cherries. Delicious. It's mercifully not too sweet (which some single malts are to the point of cloying, especially the Speysides, though Islays often are too once you get past the upfront smoke). Here is the beauty of this blend: the 12 year old grain whiskeys lighten things up and smooth out the finish (to the point it's dangerous) admittedly at the expense of a somewhat lighter mouthfeel while toning down the cloying cotton candy sweetness of pure malts whilst at the same time bringing the price back down to earth. Maybe they were on to something back in 1909. I'd argue they "fixed" single malts. Like I said 1000 words ago in this rant, I'm a reformed single malt snob. Oh -- and it has an honest-t'-goodness respectable 12 yr age statement! Something else it has over the singles in this sad "another day another NAS Scotch release" era we're now in.

Good but far from great...and soon to be far from good

JW Black was the first modestly-priced Scotch I found in Canada that wasn't harsh and had a lingering smoky aftertaste. It's lost a lot of its depth in recent years. If it hasn't already, it will serve as another example of a once-great brand bought and made more cheaply by a multinational comglomerate.

The sad decline of a once great whisky

Underrated and overpriced these days (even at the UK supermarket offer price of 20 quid). I bought a bottle from an auction site that had been bottled in the 80s and that was vastly superior to the current distillation. It's such a shame as this whisky was great. I still drink it occasionally to try and recapture the delicious flavours of older bottlings, but it's sadly gone.

Did I say it was 'thin' ?.. Very thin . A ghost . I have no idea whatsoever what the 'other' were tasting who applaud this .

Opened a new bottle on the evening of 15th december,2021 to toast the memory of the late, great Christopher Hitchens on the 10th year after his death. He was a fan of this whisky throughout his world travels. Very sadly , no-one-thing whatsoever to be a 'fan' of
in this once trustworthy blend ; a thin and lightweight taste of a smoky nothing-much-at-all . No 'body' just a 'thin' smoke and iodine.
Someone is having a laugh - a dilute and mere
gloaming of it's former self . This is a form of
cultural dissemination writ large for 'gain' .

Not the best

This is the first blend I’ve tried as I’ve been drinking single malts for years but the amount I’m going through I needed to find a cheaper alternative. Must say, I’m not impressed.

It’s not bad, I was just expecting a more smokey flavour and the finish just fades away after a couple of seconds after swallowing. Seeing I could get a glenlivet for about another £2. Think I’ll stick to the single malts.

Fantastic value for the money

This is a nice blend for less than £30. Even the snobs (hah!) can't get mad at you enjoying this how you like it. Put it on some ice, add a small drop of cherry coke... Do whatever makes you enjoy life that little bit more. P.S. if reading this review makes you angry, remember, the best whisky is the whisky you like, the way you like to drink it.

An excellent daily drinker

Johnnie Walker Black is an excellent expression of blended Scotch. It never tries to be anything more than it is. This is an excellent drinker and you will be hard-pressed to find anything better for the money. I can’t imagine anyone saying that it taste like bourbon because it absolutely does not. There is no remote characteristic of this whiskey that has any comparison to bourbon. I find it incredibly enjoyable and would drink it anytime.
I have compared this to every blend option available from JW and it holds its own with everything up to the blue. Well done. This is an excellent daily drinker for those not wanting to pop $70 to 100 down on a single malt.
