Review: Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 11, 2010

The Johnnie Walker Brand of whisky is one of the most iconic brands in all of the world. with its unique square bottle and the labels tilted a 24 degrees off-center, the company has created a strong brand image and is considered by many to be the quintessential Scottish whisky. The company was born in about 1820, and has grown steadily to become one of the most important Scottish whisky brands in the world today.

The Black Label is a blended Scotch Whisky, which is composed of up to 40 malted and grain whiskies. The origins of the blend can be traced back to 1867, when Alexander Walker copyrighted and began to bottle Old Highland Whisky. In 1909 the name of the blend was changed to Johnnie Walker Black label in reference to the color of the label which had become the generic means of identifying the blend amongst the Johnnie Walker customers.

I had a chance to get to know This Black Label Whisky and here is a sample of the review:

“…In my first tasting of Johnnie Walker Black I was impressed by the overall flavour I encountered. All of the elements which I expected to find were in the right places and at the right strength. A rich fruity sherry smoke underlain with a nice floral organic peat seemed to anchor the whisky and to carry lighter sweeter elements forward….”
