Is Black Label better than blue?

Blue label is more matured than Black label, much richer and smooth blend using exceptionally rare malts and grains. While tasting Blue label, you will feel the multi-layers of flavours, subtle aroma of smoke with a hint of sweetness. Blue label is hand crafted. Black label is taken as a long drink.

The Johnnie Walker Black contains 30 to 40 different malts. It's more robust than the Blue, and less refined, too. A larger proportion of Islay whiskies deliver a noticeable level of peat and smoke.

Why is it called double black?

Like Black Label, Double Black is blended from a combination of single malts and grain whiskey. Beveridge calls it an "expression of Black" because it "has the same basic DNA. That includes single malts from two well-known Diageo distilleries, Caol Ila (from Islay) and Talisker (from the Isle of Skye).

Is Johnnie Walker Green Label good?

Green Label is as solid an example of what is possible when blending single malts as I could reasonably hope for. Strictly on its own merits, I find the whisky to be enjoyable, interesting, and effortlessly drinkable. Combined with a comparatively reasonable $65 price point, I find the stuff absolutely irresistible.

How do you drink scotch?

Scotch is best served at room temperature.
Traditionally, scotch is served with a side of spring water (tap water may interfere with the taste). Add water, if desired, little by little to your taste. If you do prefer cold scotch however, fill your glass with ice rather than adding one or two cubes.

What does Blue Label taste like?

The mouthfeel of Blue Label is round and full and soft. The dram easily coats the mouth and feels warm without even a hint of alcohol burn. The finish is soft, layered, and very long. The flavors are balanced exceptionally well throughout.

Is Green Label better than Black Label?

Green Label is a Vatted or Blend Malt as opposed to Black Label which is a Blended Scotch. The difference is that Green Label doesn't contain any grain alcohol, only a blend or vatting of single malts. In my opinion it is worth seeking out the Green Label over Black Label.
