Black Label Old Fashioned

Johnnie Walker Black Label

An Iconic Whisky from John Walker & Sons is the only way to describe Johnnie Walker Black Label.

It is rich, complex and incredibly well-balanced, full of dark fruits, sweet vanilla and signature smokiness. Blended exclusively from whiskies matured for at least 12 years, it brings together flavors from the four corners of Scotland to create an experience that is complex, deep and rewarding.

This delicious scotch whisky rolls decadently over the tongue, releasing intense sweet vanillas that give way to orange zest and aromas of spice and raisins. The finish is unbelievably smooth and layered with rich smoke, peat, and malt.

How To Serve

Enjoy Johnnie Walker Black Label in any way you like - on its own, with a dash of water, or in your favorite cocktail.

We recommend that it be used when you mix an Old Fashioned.

Without a doubt when you mix this cocktail you and your guests will enjoy a truly remarkable beverage.

The Black Label Old Fashioned is a cocktail made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding Johnnie Walker Black Label, and a twist of citrus rind. It is traditionally served in a short, round, tumbler-like glass, which is called an Old Fashioned glass, named after the drink.

The Old Fashioned, developed during the 19th century and given its name in the 1880s, is an IBA Official Cocktail. It is also one of six basic drinks listed in David A. Embury's The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.
