Johnnie Walker Black Label 12-Year Blended Scotch Whisky
Whoa, its thundering and flashing righteously outside. Just an odd, odd summer we've been experiencing in Toronto.
This bottle was given to me by a very old friend of mine, who's coincidentally, not a big whisky drinker. But then again, neither am I. Amber colour, sweet malts on the nose, and intense sweetness on the palate. More silkier and creamier than I expected, but the alcohol disturbs me. There is still harshness from the alcohol that I don't find in finer single malt scotches, such as Lagavulin. But it is very sweet.
At 43%, this stuff is lethal. My hangover still hasn't subsided. Head pounding, a bit disoriented. Lethal.
