themaltbar: Is this not one of the most reliable blends out there? Top JWB...just try
it... when it comes to consistency and reliability?! These folks got it
Merry Christmas Ralfy/merry maltesters from everybody here at ye 'ol Malt
Jose Escobar: There is a noticeable difference in the caramel content from 2009 to 2013.
I recently bought a bottle and it is not nearly as dark.
Eugenio Guarente: Equally with Buchannan's 12yo. The Jhonnie Walker Black label, is one of
the most sold and consumed in Venezuela.
Young Anthony: Best selling scotch in the world, so there you go whisky wanderers.
Rajesh Shah: HI MaltyRalf,
I have two products of BlackLabel. One purchased from Heathrow Dutyfree
which is 43% abv; and second purchased from Dubai Dutyfree which is 40%
abv. Both of them taste different. I have heard of rumours that a lot of un
genuine BlackLabels are floating around even in the duty-free shops
worldwide. Is there some truth in it?
Remon Rasho: I'm considering this, a Glenmorangie 10 year or a Chivas 12 year for a
gift... which of these three would you recommend?
MUSTANG19681968: Luv you Ralfy, and i'm not a puffer.
Daniel: I also love the Johnny Walker Black Whiskey too.
ynmamflm: Burned out on rums and bourbons (Iv'e had them ALL) I have engaged in
SCOTCH. I left the kids at home and rush down to the liquor store (don't
tell momma) for a bottle of scotch. I paid 21 buck for a PINT of JWB and
also bought a 30 pack of Busch beer for my 73 year old mother (beers for
cheap alcoholic) at the same price. I need advice now. Since switching to
scotch my love for rums and bourbons have been diminished. BUT good scotch
is HIGH DOLLAR. What scotch can I drink that's affordable? This Kansan
kavieres: Glenfiddich 12 yo and Johnnie Walker Black label have the same score, i
haven't tried either yet. Which one should i go for?
lacrymosa85: It's unusually peaty...
cugamer: I've tried drinking Scotch a few times, and I'll be honest, it was like
drinking lighter fluid. But I'm not a quitter! I know many who find great
pleasure in this drink and all it's subtleties. If I can, I'd like to get
the taste. Can one develop a taste for it, even if the initial experience
is so negative and if so, how should I go about it?
Blair Phillips: Ralfy, quick comment and question. I love your videos and use them as a
guide for how much water to add to each new whisky that I try (you have
reviewed every one that I have bought). However, I do notice some
inconsistencies. For instance, you don't add any water to this blend at all
but you add 2 or 3 teaspoons to the Dewars 12, which is also 40%. Why is
Flamingo Barnes: just got a nice bottle of JWB for new years... my tribute to Hitch
DarKool81: freak sake! Some people are just followers, substituting one messiah for
71samrath: Ralf started drinking this.. How much water do u suggest???
Bas van der Meij: JW Black label is my favorite whisky haha :3 i just love the taste.. :P
joenewbie316: One of the biggest points of WHY? Blended... simple, consistency single
malts can sometimes be hit or miss, the same way a wine can vary. Blended
takes out the variance, this years production will taste the same as last
years, other than in bottle aging and smoothing that will happen if you
keep the bottle a long time, but that's not what I mean. I buy JWBlack
today, and it tastes the same as the one I bought last month that was
produced a year earlier. Single malts can be more bold.
Andy Collier: Ralfy! have you reviewed Johnny Walker Blue yet? I would be interested to
hear your views on this fine enigma..
kicksit1980: Ralfy, What do the marks mean? What I mean is; what is good, what is bad,
what is mediocre when it comes to the malt and blend marks?
wesleytaylorviadomus: Black Label has become horrible blended crap crap!
christopher brown: What's your best rated scotch whiskey ralfy?
SemenVerh: @ralfystuff Thanks a lot for your advice!
maystros08: اقول مايسنعنا ب بطل ذبححنا السنير هههههههههههههههههه
BravingTheOutDoors: Ralfy, I really like you, you're a great guy and I'm learning a lot but you
gave a 10 yo Sherry Macallan 82 and you're giving this crap 86? That's just
trexmobile1: just tried my first bottle of this and i hated it tasted bitter and sour i
even went as far as writing the company. i do like the red label so i
figured that the black label would be better. i have now found Monkey
Shoulder and i think it is by far the tasties whiskey ive bought at its
price range. cant wait to be able to spend real money 100plus on whiskey.
Eurobubble70: buying black label makes no sense imo, here in austria you can get
laphroaig 10 or highland park 12 for just 3 euros more. teachers or grants
family reserve will atleast save you money.
stingfan24: You're thinking of Johnnie Walker Green Label - that is 100% Malt content,
and is incidentally being discontinued, so grab a bottle while you can.
MemoryLaneCinema: What's your fav whiskey then ralfy? I tried Jack D old nr 7 for the first
time the other day. Wasn't my taste at all. Not the whiskey for beginners
or what do you think? -Norway
greymilton: Nice review. As a blended whiskey drinker, this is by far my favourite. I
usually add ice and enjoy it quite well. I know that you mentioned that
water will imbalance the whiskey, but I find that while the ice melts, each
sip is different -which I rather like! What are your thoughts on adding ice
to whiskey? -(for both blends and single malts.) Cheers
neonblack666: Hi Ralfy, any thoughts on the new double black? I found it quite good, yet
amazingly over hyped for what it is.
Keeponwalker: Ralfy, greetings from Fort Lauderdale, Fl. USA. Have you tried lately a
bottle of JW Black Label to see any difference from your previous review?
Also I am originally from Ecuador, South America, were we worship good
scotch whisky, but specially two brands, Buchanan's and Grand Old Parr,
both 12 yrs. old, what's your take on those as well... Thank you for
opening that hidden door to the garden of heavenly smells and divine taste
that the world of scotch whisky is. Keep on walking Ralfy!
kurohige1338: @ralfystuff That makes sense. Thanks very much!
Luke Gavin: Just drink the freakin thing....!!!!!!!!!!
Paul HL: Behave yourself haha
THampork Vchesse: The JW Red is horrid... JW Black is much better...
CorporateEvolution: :/ Caol Ila 12 year old is $79, I might buy that instead :/.
mesarock2vh: Ralfy have you ever thought about doing a Moonshine review? I've never
tried the stuff but it would be interesting to get your thoughts on Shine.
ConfusedSponge: Ralfy, what's the best economical Scottish Blended Whisky & the best
Scottish Blended Whiskey ever regardless of the price?
Christian Wolff: Dear Ralfy - been enjoying your reviews for the last couple of years. I'm
not normally a big fan of JW Black, but had it again the other day after a
long time and quite enjoyed it; do you think the packaging affects he
flavour, i.e. plastic vs glass bottles? In particular, the plastic
miniature bottles seem to lend it a very raw, alcohol-solventy nose, a
problem which seemed to be entirely absent from the version sold in glass
CorporateEvolution: I think they are usually around $50 here in Australia, I haven't tried
Bishmills black bush yet. I really want to try Johnny Walker Green Label.
FlyingThereAndBack: Well I chose the Blue Labeled Sullivans Cove purely because it had the word
fruity on it which the black labeled bottle lacked. I have noticed you only
have reviewed the black so I hope I haven't made a poor choice. It sit's in
front of me as I type, just can't wait to crack her Saturday to celebrate a
special occasion which actually was today, if u have any suggestions for a
novice drinker feel free, I was going to try a little water, and then none
and see which I prefer. Never gone over 43%
Lewis Watson: "Johnnie Walker Black, the breakfast of champions"- Christopher Hitchens
Fiend V: Very good upload. This video contains the exact information I was looking
thedontletthemchange: Which whisky you will miss and choose for a glass after a long time witouth.
Keeponwalker: Ralfy, hi. I wanted to know what is your take on the Limited or Special
Editions of Johnnie Walker Black Label, bottled at 43%? For example the
Jasper Goodall Limited Editions bottles! Etc... Thank you.
FlyingThereAndBack: Hey mate I am a bit of a whiskey drinker but no pro (If that's what u want
to call it). I have bought Blue Label bottle's 3 time's each time it tasted
very different, the first time the best by far. Is it not so consistant in
the bottle's, or do you think it is a pure psychological effect.
Jermey .Risenburg: If you prefer Red Label to Black Label you likely won't like the more
expensive whiskies, save your money & try Pig Nose or Teachers. Black Label
is blended from many of the more expensive Single Malts like my fav
Talisker $85/fifth here in the US, Black Label is $35/fifth so I drink
mostly Black Label (I will drink Red Label on the rocks too).
jlim2397: @mrsle Other countries have more miniatures than us Aussies. Youd think
with the prices we pay, miniature samples would be more rather than less
DarKool81: There are two major points on which I disagree with him: Iraq and his
choice of whiskey, but I suppose I can't diss you for liking Hitchens, so
let's leave it there.
Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
