Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Complex savory aromas abound, not unlike a dry-aged steak. Also bacon fat, peat smoke and dried sage blend with stewed peach. On the palate it is rich and delicately honeyed with white pepper, campfire smoke and just the slightest hint of tropical fruit. Elegant finish.  (Apr 2014)

Wine Enthusiast 92 points - This blended Scotch, ’matured in deep-charred old oak casks’¯ features intensely smoky aromas and flavors, although honey sweetness and mellow almond peek through. Golden in hue, with a silky feel.
Aromas are decidedly savory with peat, bacon, and fresh herbal undertones. The flavor profile has hints of sweet bran, cinnamon and tobacco with a smokey and grainy finish. Very smooth. (Sep 2013)

Blended to break the rules, Double Black boasts an edgy confidence in flavor that separates it from its balanced relative, Johnnie Walker Black Label. It is not simply a darker version of Black Label, for it cannot be defined by color alone. Nevertheless, the two blends are intrinsically linked. As any discriminating drinker can see, they share DNA - in their smoky nose, unmistakable spice and slight tones of dried fruit. But the similarities end there. With this blend, the exclusive taste trumps all. It's no wonder whisky critics and aficionados have snatched up the limited number of bottles produced, making it even more elusive and mysterious. But rest assured, the "mischievous brother" won't be gone for long - just remember that flavor of this intensity takes time and great care to craft.
