Johnny Walker’s new Double Black Label

Double Black Label — a new addition to the Johnnie Walker Family of Whisky. The whisky was created taking Black Label as a blueprint and adding heavily-peated malts and some aged in deeply charred oak casks

Recently, Johnny Walker unveiled a new delicacy for the discerning whisky connoisseur, the Double Black Blended Scotch. This new blend excellently represents Walker’s brand heritage and further pushes the typical Johnny Walker tasting notes to another degree of refinement. Regarding JW, the peat-level and smokiness reveals a truly new aroma, which already scored a masters award from this years World Whisky Masters Awards. If savoured entirely, the tinted charcoal grey bottle will remain as a keepsake, recalling the hours of relief, contemplation and sophisticated conversations.

Double secret probation and double rainbows may be old news, but Johnnie Walker Double Black is different. Created around a similar premise to Belvedere’s Intense Vodka, this blended scotch whiskey is designed to provide a bolder, smokier flavor compared to its ubiquitous predecessor. The added flavor comes from taking the original spirit and aging it longer with peat flavored malts in charred oak barrels. It’s only available in select duty-free airport stores and will cost you 20% more than regular Black Label, but you should see Double Black Label stocked at your local spirits purveyor sometime in March 2011. If you do manage to get your hands on a bottle though, be sure to save it for the special occasions where one just isn’t enough. In other words… know any twins?

It's Tasting Time

My father in law loves BL. He always have a bottle in the fridge and grab a glass every weekends while watching DVDs :) Red Label is really good.

New Black Label, something to be added on my spirits list. But still I'm more of an Absolut drinker. :)

I'm not yet into drinking, but Black Label is one of my dad's faves :) I really like how you blog about new wines. I'm curious though, do you have a post for wine noobs? Thanks!
