Johnnie Walker black Label a 12 yro blended whiskey. Its is stated to be blended from over 40 distilleries. It is personally my favorite blends and remains a constant in my cabinet.

Nose: Is quite full adn complex. First its all smoke, but with repeated sniffs you can get creamy, floral, and spice notes. There is something sweet that I cannot rap my nose around.

Palate: Hits with a cool sweetness with spice notes and followed by lingering oak and vanilla. Weaker than was expected with the nose.

Finish: Long and enjoyable. Fruity, pear or a mild apple. Its smooth with honey and peated grain.

Black Label deserves more credit than it is given. I haven't sampled any other of Johnnie's other blends, but for the price of £23.44 you can't beat it.

@bobsterman91, good review ... I agree that JW Black is quite a good blend, and the vatted JW Green is even better. If you like smoky balanced blends, you might consider Teachers Highland Cream ... a yummy blend based on Ardmore Traditional Cask (a smoky Speyside). But then you will want to graduate and get a bottle of Ardmore :)
