Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch Whisky
The deluxe blended Scotch whisky from the house of Johnnie Walker, Black Label alongside the Red Label is one of the oldest expressions from the brand. Christened with the name Black Label in 1909 prior to which it was known as the Extra Special Old Highland Scotch Whisky.
The Black Label blended Scotch whisky carries an age-statement of 12 years, and like the Green Label expression, contains source whiskies from four different parts of Scotland, retaining the qualities of the typically malty West coast malts to the subtle flavors of the East.
Johnnie Walker Black Label is packaged in the signature Johnnie Walker bottle and continues to be a very popular brand in the market today. Its competitors in the ultra-premium blended whisky segment are whiskies from the house of Chivas Regal, another stellar brand with a prolific and vibrant history.
A smooth drink, it is a combination of single malt and grain Scotch whiskies from some historic distilleries in Scotland. Even with an age-statement of 12 years, the Johnnie Walker Black Label is the youngest blended Scotch whisky from Johnnie Walker, placed slightly above the Johnnie Walker Red Label in terms of pricing.
The initial line of three blended whiskies from Johnnie Walker between 1906 and 1909 was done under the leadership of founder John Walker’s grandsons, George Walker and Alexander Walker II.
