Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Johnnie Walker Double Black carries a deep, inky hue, akin to mahogany tinged with sooty black. Its appearance alone foretells the rich, smoky profile that awaits within.
Upon nosing, the initial wave delivers a crescendo of peat smoke beautifully integrated with nuances of dried fruit and a subtle, almost hidden, wisp of vanilla. Traces of sea spray and iodine reaffirm its complex olfactory character.
The palate greets you with a rich, almost syrupy mouthfeel accompanied by elements of dark chocolate, raisins, and a dominant peatiness. A tapestry of spices, including black pepper and cinnamon, provide a stimulating counterpoint to the smoky overtones.
The finish is extended and satisfying, characterized by lingering notes of smoked oak and a smoldering, ashy aftertaste that adds a certain gravitas to the experience.
Despite its robust nature, Double Black manages to maintain a balanced and almost creamy mouthfeel, making it both palatable and intriguing.
