Johnnie Walker Double Black is a dram of sophisticated smokiness.

Johnnie Walker is one of the most recognized Whisky names in the World. The brand was established in 1860 by John “Johnnie” Walker, when he started blending Whiskies from his grocery shop in Ayrshire, Scotland. During the Victorian Era, success came when his son Alexander exported around the British Empire, establishing the Whisky early as one of the first truly global brands. Today, Johnnie Walker’s famous square-shaped bottle—with the label set at a jaunty 24 degrees—is THE most popular blended Whisky in the world, selling more than 130 million bottles per year in nearly every country on the planet across their wide range of ages, special editions, and finishes.

You may already be familiar with Johnny Walker Black it’s their benchmark premium blended Scotch Whiskey. Johnnie Walker Double Black is a relatively new addition (2011) to their lineup designed to focus that same attention to quality on a blended collection of single malts and grains in the style of West Coast and Islay Whiskies — which means savory peat and smoky notes from heavily-charred aging casks. This is NOT a “punch in the face with smoke and test your manhood” Whisky however. It is a sophisticated dram with gentle smoke and incredible balance.

Dmitriy,
Very nice peated scotch
 
Derek
Derek,
Another great product from JW. This version has a higher amount of peat and smoke than the JW Black. Great price for a daily drinker. I always keep this stocked.

pretty smokey much darker in color
 
Pierre
Pierre,
This is the strangest Johnnie Walker blend I have ever had. The first time you open the bottle and have a tasting the flavors are vibrant with fruit, honey, small bit of spice and a slight peat finish. But after 24 hours that vibrancy and peat seem to disappear and the entire flavor profile changes. I find it really hard to recommend this one. Once this bottle is done I am pretty sure it will not return to my bar.
 
Justin
Justin,
A bit smokier than Black Label, so if you want a bit more smoke, go for this one. Honestly, I think the normal Black Label is more balanced and I'll probably just stick to that.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Love it! Smoother then black, love the oaky flavor. A daily or weekly drink for me
 
Sean
Sean,
Love it. Surprisingly close to my experience with Talisker. Also very rich and smoky.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smokey flavor stands out and the spice is accurate. Interesting flavor.
 
Brian
Brian,
Overall this is a decent Scotch. It will not be one I purchase again. Other reviewers have well said that it has a smokey flavor, which means that on the back side the smoky flavor comes up after you have swallowed. It is not a Scotch to drink, it is a sipping Scotch. Compared to many other Scotches, those at least 12yo and up, it is not nearly as smooth. If you want an interesting flavor experience, then this is a good Scotch to enjoy and share. If you are looking for it to be twice as smooth and refined as Johnny Black, it isn't.

Marcus
Marcus,
Probably the most friendly smokey scotch i have tried to date. Great blend. Just wish it was a cork.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Just another wonderful product from Johnnie Walker. Very smooth, just slightly smokier than the regular black label. A hint of anise which gives you a slight mouth numbing affect but not overly powerful as with some of the peatier Islay single malts. A must have for any fan of Johnnie Walker.

Smooth with smoky glow around it. Coats my mouth.
 
Ben
Ben,
Nose: Oak, smoke, pepper, caramel. Taste: Spices, toasty smokey notes, pepper, licorice, aniseed. If I’m looking for a decent well made Scotch with some smoke influence but nothing too overly complicated this is always one of my go to blends.

Carolyn,
A smooth and excellent taste.
 
Elizabeth

Smooth, oaky and complex.
 
Tim
Tim,
If you like smokey whisky, you may like this one as a daily drink. It goes very well with a smooth cigar. Note, this is not for people who don't like peaty\smokey whisky.

Kurt
Kurt,
Not a fan. Tried it straight, on rocks, with water and mixed. Its has an odd flavor to it and I dont find it pleasant.
 
Kurt
Kurt,
As i stated earlier about the brandy I am new to this and have no knowledge on what is supposed to be good and what isnt. I do know what I like though. I didn't care much for it straight but did like it on the rocks once it was watered down a little. I am excited to try others and learn more about this fascinating world.

Good but a little to smokey for me I was expecting more flavor or a step up from black I thought regular black far better as far as taste.

This tasted watered down. Very disappointed and the reason I’ll never buy another bottle of Johnnie. So many better brands out there.

it’s very smoky and charred. I mix it with freshly pressed ginger juice with a squeeze of lemon and a drop of honey.

Glenn
Glenn,
Just a heavier mouth feel and stronger flavor than JW Black, which is itself an excellent blend. Probably the best JW value lies between Black and Double Black.
