Nice. Prefer JW Blue label though :-)

it's a joke..... go to most independant off's and it's only £18.... these supermarkets take the p some times !

This is not JW Black - it's on a another level. Picked this up in duty free last year + £30 was fairly good - quite smokey and much more complex.

Good for the money HOT- though wouldnt' buy again personally.

uhhh *double* black? no, i don't think so.
agree this is overpriced but don't compare apples and oranges.

world duty free has it for £25 for a litre just now. Not a duty free price so you, or someone you know can get it on internal or EU flights

Or if you live near an airport, buy a fully flexible/fully refundable ticket on BA, check in , buy from world duty free and then cancel the ticket for a full refund.

Nice Whisky. Super smooth although i agree that JW Blue is the better.

Does this work for real ? anybody else try this before ? Super hot if True !

Still twice as expensive as it should. That kind of money would buy a good single malt.

Just a quick search @ Tesco :

0.7 Highland Park - £25
1L Glenfiddich 'Green' 12Y - £33

Costco has it for around £22 inc vat, but i think this is the best price for regular supermarkets at the moment.

Mind you i took advantage of £25 for a litre at Gatwick a few weeks ago

JW is a malt in a roundabout way, it's a blend of malts. Not to be confused with Bells, etc., which is a blend of c**p.

I would also hope that you guys prefer JW Blue as it's £150+ a bottle.:)

I am sorry to ask but where did you get that information from ?

I didn't say it's a bad whisky (never tried really and probably never will) .I just wouldn't pay £30 for a bottle of blended , no matter how good the make-up was :).To me Johnny Walker is a bit like Apple, just a strong brand that force you to pay more for the same.

Don't be sorry for asking. I should say correctly that the blends of malts start at the Black.
"The Johnnie Walker Black Label blends several whiskies that have all been aged at least 12 years. Blended whiskies can also contain grain alcohol, however, Johnnie Walker does not use any other alcohol other than single malts often. It’s premium label, Blue, only uses single malts aged from 25 to over 60 years."
My wife works for reserve brands for Diageo, which encompasses JW, so she's pretty knowledgeable on the subject and means I'm a lucky man when it comes to booze.X)
It's actually harder to make a fine blended whisky than a malt, as a malt is a malt, a mix of malts could taste like cr*p. Blue Label is so expensive as it's a blend of the rarest malts, and it's like drinking nectar, very smooth. Give them a go, they're bloody good whiskies.

Black Label I've read has both has grain and malt, making it inferior. I believe the pure malt starts with the green label, I don't know what 'Double Black' is though, maybe it's a pure malt? Don't know

Johnnie Walker is seriously overpriced, even if this is a Pure Malt, it doesn't make it a hot deal, cold for me on principle

You can pay £10000 a SHOT for some variations of JW!

More of a fashion label than a whisky. Stick to Glenfarclas 105 or 30 years for some true magic!
