Johnnie Walker Black Label has been awarded more accolades than any other Scotch Whisky in the deluxe blended whisky category. Possessing a long history that began in the 1870's as 'Johnnie Walker Black Label', this whisky officially became known as simply 'Black Label' in 1909, and has since made its mark as a classic in the arena of deluxe Scotch Whisky. With a special blending of 40 grain and malt whiskies - each of which has been aged for a minimum of 12 years - the Black Label has become renowned as a premium offering. Rich and smooth, deep and complex, Black Label is justifiably esteemed as one of the finest of the Johnnie Walker Labels.

"If there is a silkier delivery on the market today, I have not seen it: this is sublime stuff with the grains singing the sweetest hymns as they go down, taking with them a near perfection of weighty smoke lightened by brilliantly balanced barley which leans towards both soft apple and creme brulee. Here it is: one of the world's most masterful whiskies... a bottle like this is like being visited by an old lover. It just warms the heart an excites." - Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Golden ochre. Rich aroma of maple syrup, spice and mustard. Inherently smoky and dry with suggestions of spice, sweet malt, creamy vanilla, sherry and the fruitiness of apple. Round, pleasantly lingering, with a hint of sherry and a mellow quality
