Whisky Reviews for Johnnie Walker Black Label

- At these times "the" whiskey in a bar in switzerland, Chivas or red label, much more there was not available (Glenfiddich of course). A bitter herb drought remains in the mouth, the finish is smoky dry and for me the bitter notes remains on the palate.. May be quite OK for a blend, he does not convince me. You like him or not. Compared to the newer bottlings such bottles have clearly more character.
- This 12 year old Black Label was imported to Switzerland in 1973 - hence the old label. The assumption what kind of whisky was used to create this blend is therefore simple: it's got to be stuff from the late 50s and very early 60s that were used and make this Black Label so different from its today's brother. A stunning experience and not so easy to find these days!
