Sweet smoky raw aggressive arrival develops a herbal/fruit balanced middle then a fast short smoke filled finish.

Does it feel like it was naturally smoked or just flavored?

@mct I would says that it is more of a matter of the malting's that were used. Port Ellen would be my guess or perhaps some resources from Caol Ila distillery. More of a case of natural peeted malt. Thanks for your input.

Although the JW Black is a decent blend, I find this Double Black noticeably more peaty and complex. However, for less money I can pick up Ardmore TC, which is even better to me. One thing, once you get about half empty with the DB, you'd better have friends over and finish it off. The smoke and flavor tend to disappear.

@Taco thanks for your input. I would say that the Ardmore TC is a better scotch than the JW DB however for the price it is a good intro to peat for those who don't have a lot of experience with smokier scotches. As for the bottle half full I don't have friends who can help finish the bottle.

I just find that most blends fade out with time and air, so I'd suggest not letting a half bottle sit too long. Compass Box blends hangs in much longer, but they also have much higher malt content.
