Label Johnnie Walker Like Johnnie Walker Red Label, whiskey is one of the most well-known and commonly consumed alcoholic beverages in the world. If you desire whiskey, it's always available because it seems to be at every shop and eatery that sells whiskey. It's always dependable.

If you've ever sipped Scotch, you've probably encountered Johnnie Walker in some capacity. Your parents most likely had it, too, because it has been available for such a long time. I also occasionally drank this in my formative years as a whiskey fan living in New York City.

I recall having a 1.75L handle of Black Label that I brought to commemorate a friend's college graduation. I know I didn't steal it because I paid for it myself. Nevertheless, I remember with joy celebrating a close friend's success with Black Label, as I'm sure many others do as well.

Let me explain what 12 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky means in everyday English before we begin the review. It comes from many distilleries and is blended. Scotch Whisky, referred to as single (without reference to malt), is a blend of whiskies created from different grains and 100% malted barley (usually corn, called grain whiskey).

All of the whiskey in the blend has a minimum age of 12 years.

The primary distinction between this and, for example, Glenfiddich 12-Year Single Malt Scotch is that the latter is produced only using malted barley and comes from a single distillery. Black Label Whiskey uses a wider variety of whiskies and is sourced from all throughout Scotland.

In this Johnnie Walker Black Label review, we'll take a closer look at this wildly famous Scotch and see why people still enjoy it. My first few sniffs reveal creamy vanilla and honey, dried strawberries, peaches, pears, and a hint of peat, moss, and grass. Underneath the sweetness and fruit, Johnnie Walker Black Label Whiskey has a reasonable amount of body and blackness, and there isn't much smoke at all.

I detect creamy honey, caramel, apricot, toasted biscuit, a tiny touch of roasted oak, a slight sharpness akin to fruit peel, and a faint charred and smoky undertone on the first sip. Since I'm used to Laphroaig, the peat is mild (at least for me). Hakushu 12 Year and Bruichladdich 10 Year have given me more, and the heat isn't a big concern because it's expected.

After "chewing," there are notes of dry grass, smoke, vanilla, apricot, and starfruit, as well as toasted grains, roasted grains, roasted oak, and vegetal greens. Even while it's still not very strong, "chewing" brings out some of the smokiness. The apricot and starfruit are the main flavors that emphasize the bourbon cask-aging.
