If there has ever been a time to keep on walking, it's been this past year.
Winston Churchill said when you're going through hell, keep on going! Glasses have been raised more than ever during the covid time at home and we suggest you raise a glass of Johnnie Walker Black. Whom You Know is absolutely thrilled to kick off our professional coverage of Johnnie Walker!  
We start with Johnnie Walker Black: it is the twelve-year blend showcasing exceptional Scotch Whisky from across Scotland. It's the world's leading deluxe blended scotch whisky.  Note that Whom You Know is also twelve this year, and you can pretend that Peachy was about 12 when she started it.  Well, she was most definitely drinking Johnnie Walker at age 22 and here is the evidence:

It's not who you know, it's Whom You Know and once upon a time there was a time when Peachy was not so well-educated about exactly what one should imbibe. This is a picture of the first time she attended a Johnnie Walker event and she might be showing her age a little bit because you can tell it is not digital. Thank you Gene from the Boston Ski and Sports Club for educating us early on that Johnnie Walker Black is where it's at.  

The signature malt-driven smoothness of Johnnie Walker Black make every day an occasion to celebrate and appreciate the finer things in life.  On the rocks is our preferred method of drinking Johnnie Walker Black, and it is perfect to start cocktail hour with and its versatility proves that it pairs well with all food and after-dinner celebrations.   It is just smoky enough without being overwhelming and the depth drawn from the four corners of Scotland make the layered nuances shine.

We may be a bit older but we are equally as wise and more experienced!  We are also thrilled to enhance the Keeping Scotland on Top column because of course this is crafted in Scotland.  Speaking of Scotland, you can see what was #1 worldwide at the Box Office this past weekend: Mover and Shaker Chris Reilly's Wrath of Man which is also keeping Scotland on Top.  Watch The Last Post while you are at it: he earned a BAFTA for that.

Johnnie Walker Black Label has been the world’s #1 Blended Scotch for over a century. Once referred to as, “the Everest of deluxe whiskies,” Black Label is the result of nearly 200 years of blending craftsmanship. Black Label retains the authenticity of its creators John Walker and son Alexander, who’s commitment to quality, community and progress for two generations built the Johnnie Walker legacy, and established Black Label as a timeless masterpiece of the Scotch Whisky world.

Every ounce is matured in oak casks for a minimum of twelve years, with the balance of wood, climate, time and location adding to the blend’s distinct flavor spectrum. The taste of Johnnie Walker Black Label is one that cannot be replicated. Decade after decade, Black Label wins awards and accolades as experts consistently appreciate its understated, classic qualities.

Additional Product Notes:

· 30+ whiskies are blended into Johnnie Walker Black Label and aged in oak casks for a minimum of 12 years giving it a wide spectrum of taste and character

· Various whiskies from the four corners of Scotland lend itself to the unique, distinct taste of Black Label including Blair Athol, Cardhu, Strathmill and Caol Ila

· Black Label boasts superior depth and complexity, with a much smokier and fuller flavor than other deluxe blends

Tasting Notes: Black Label boasts a nose of honey, dried fruit and coconut and notes of caramel and toffee presenting a wonderful combination of dry smokiness, with rich malt and peat overtones balanced by hints of cedar and fruit with trademark dark chocolate and vanilla sweetness.

Johnnie Walker Black is Highly Recommended by Whom You Know!
