THE Limited Edition Johnnie Walker Double Black is now available in Malaysia as a limited edition off-trade exclusive.
Produced in small batches, this unique expression of the brand’s flagship Black Label was initially released in November 2010 as a limited edition travel retail exclusive.
The blend is created using whiskies from the more remote distilleries on the west coast of Scotland to deliver the brand’s distinctively peaty, smokier aroma, which are then combined with whiskies that were matured in deep, charred oak. The result is a whisky that is smokier, full-bodied and with a more intense taste.
It has already made a big impact with the world’s leading whisky writers; earning a World Whisky Master in the highly coveted Best Super Premium Blends category of the 2010 World Whisky Masters Awards.
Johnnie Walker Double Black will be available in select Jusco, Cold Storage, Sunshine, and other off-premise stores and retailers in Malaysia, from December through Chinese New Year while stocks last.
