Johnnie Walker Double Black

(70cl, 40%)

Johnnie Walker Double Black

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Johnnie Walker Double Black to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Double Black Bottling Note

Originally released to the travel retail market, Double Black combines the rich, malty flavour of Black Label with slightly peatier whisky and casks that were more heavily charred. The result is a toasty, smoky whisky with Johnnie Walker's usual rich, malty core.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Slightly smoky and almost medicinal on the nose, it offers up hints of vanilla, a little tar, a touch of barbecue sauce, citrus and malt.

Palate: Good body and very creamy with a sublimely malty core. It offers up a surprising level of peat smoke which works really well. Creamy sweetness, hints of soft wood smoke, salty butter, custard and cereal grains.

Finish: Good length with notes of malt, boiled sweets, black pepper and cool smoke.

Johnnie Walker Double Black Reviews

Decent! A bit of peat and smoke

If you like Islay whisky this is a good sipper. If you can't handle a little peat and smoke then definitely stay away. It's not overpowering in any way but it definitely let's you know it's mostly Islay.

Glenfidich anyday

It's just not for me because of the after effects

I like the flavor, but too much smoke after taste and it lingered far to long for me. And to make matters worse one drink gave me a massive headache. I've had other liquor do the same thing but not to the extent this did. I guess I'll stick Mccallen. I've had blue label before with no such I'll side effects lol

Nice

Very much what it says on the tasting notes!

Smooth, pleasant whisky

Much better than I expected. This is a very nice whisky. Compared to some single malts such as glenlivet 15 or balvennie 14, which I find a bit harsh and 1 dimensional, this is very smooth, with nice elements of figs, toffee and smoke, with an underlying sweetness (treacle/raisins) being carried through and a nice hint of complexity.
There definitely seems to be an element of talisker coming through on this 1. Very easy to drink. At £30 it's hard to fault. In fact when you think talisker skye its self is £40, I would rate this higher than that.

just doesnt stack up for the brand

I never really understood why this one can be found in many stores and yet the far better green not so much at all. And even the controversial (though fav of mine) new Gold reserve harder to find as well.

I never did get what JW was going for here. I really just beleive the successful and popular Black is the only reason this so called "double" version is so easily available. Its really just not so good. It is nothing imo like black and it cannot at all stand up to original black, nor the great Green nor the Controversial Gold.
This one imo is more of a gimmick than it is anything else. Imo its making its living simply by using the Black name.
Many folks (non Scotch drinkers) tend to buy this as a gift for thier Scotch drinking buddies or family members as though more a novelty thing. Its like ..."well I know he likes Black , so double black must be a nice gift". Sorry , but its not...lol.

This is disappointing, too smokey, and not so pleasant to sip as others from JW. I just dont see why this took off and how its even still around and lasted as long as it has. Somebody still buying it so it must be working for someone. That being said,....somewhere is the worst Doctor and yet someone has an appointment with him tomorrow.

Sorry JW,...Im a believer in the brand with the exception of Red (but red is what it is) and this one should imo simply disappear. Much rather see more shelves with green and Gold on them next to the original and always delicious Black. This one imo just kind of a gimmick.

Ill give it 2 stars simply because its drinkable enough. But thats all.

Enjoyable!

Let me start by saying that Speyside and Highlands are my favorite. I am not a fan of moderate to heavy smoke or peat. Taste is subjective and this is just me. THAT SAID, I am surprised at how much I really enjoyed this. I get a much fuller flavor than Black 12 and hardly taste smoke or peat. We all know this is not top shelf but it is there with my intermediate range. At 40 dollars this is a great everyday dram and even for guests. Defiantly better than more expensive ones I've tryed.

Why 5 Star

Good for Everyday Whisky.
different people like different taste, if you like smoky and strong flavor.
this one is for you.

Very good, especially in this price range

Probably the best whisky I’ve found in this price range. Very smooth and creamy up front with a medium about of Islay smoke on this finish.

4th July 2020

best for it's price range - smokey goodness

its my go to scotch, i go off and try others but always return home to my staple, never disappoints. i love Nikka a Japanese whiskey but at half the price its regular.
