Introduced in 1909, Johnnie Walker Black contains some 40 single malts including Talisker, Cardhu, Lagavulin and a high proportion of Islay malts. Black Label draws upon all these aromas to create a unique blend with a smooth, deep and complex character. Originally called Extra Special Old Highland Whisky, the name was changed to Black Label in 1909 due to customers ordering by the colour of the label.

Poured into a glass, Johnnie Walker Black Label is colored a light shade of gold. The nose is a bit thin and offers light, gentle peat and some apple sweetness along with a bit of malty cereal. On the palate, the whisky is delicate and quite agreeable. The peat remains mild and couples with a creamy caramel character along with fruity notes that include peaches and orange peel. Light vanilla and a touch of marshmallow appear on the finish, which is medium in length.
