Johnnie Walker Double Black is a deeper, smokier expression of the world’s no.1 deluxe Blended Scotch Whisky – Johnnie Walker Black Label, crafted for those who prefer a more intense taste. Intensity and smokiness has been created by carefully selecting Scotch Whiskies that have been matured in deep charred oak casks. The intensity and smokiness has been created by carefully selecting whiskies which have more of the distinctive west coast whisky flavor, the signature note in all Johnnie Walker whiskies.
Our Master Blender has selected whiskies which are particularly smoky and rich, from West Coast distilleries which specialize in the deeper, peaty flavour and aroma. Many of these whiskies come from smaller and more remote distilleries which adds to the unique character of the blend.
