An interesting alternative to Johnnie Walker Black Label, but certainly not a replacement. It is intense, but smooth. Basically this is an “amplified” version of Black Label, with the charred wood smokiness intensified. Still, I noticed a distinctive youthfulness in the grain whisky, and Double Black confirms this by not having an age statement, unlike its 12 Year Old famous sibling. It’s good, but not worth $45.
Intense smoke and charred wood, with some spicy notes.
Very smoky, with more peat and charcoal. It’s like they doubled the smokiness of Johnnie Walker Black Label, but this variation significantly diminishes the sweetness of JWBL.
Lingering smoke with some spiced oak. Very pleasant and rich.
