Difference between Johnnie Walker Black Label vs Black Label Sherry Edition?
The Black Label Sherry Edition explores a new style of Johnnie Walker Black Label. It is a whisky with all the exceptional quality of Black Label 12 Years Old, but with an intriguing twist, as part of the blend is matured in former Sherry Cask, giving the whisky a richer fruitiness. With its more approachable flavour, Sherry Edition is perfect for introducing new whisky drinker into the world of Scotch, at the same time, reminding lapsed drinkers of the rich and complex flavour of Black Label blend.
As a blended Scotch whisky, the expression also uses malts including Blair Athol, Cardhu and Strathmill resulting in a taste of complex fresh fruit with orchard character, sweet vanilla and gentle smoke, while Sherry Cask gives the whisky an extra richness with notes of plum and figs with a dark chocolate and coffee finish, resulting in the indulgent, smooth and rich Sherry Edition.
Sherry Edition is best served on the rocks or served as a highball with soda water and orange slice as garnish.
