Double secret probation and double rainbows may be old news, but Johnnie Walker Double Black is different. Created around a similar premise to Belvedere’s Intense Vodka, this blended scotch whiskey is designed to provide a bolder, smokier flavor compared to its ubiquitous predecessor. The added flavor comes from taking the original spirit and aging it longer with peat flavored malts in charred oak barrels. It’s only available in select duty-free airport stores and will cost you 20% more than regular Black Label, but you should see Double Black Label stocked at your local spirits purveyor sometime in March 2011. If you do manage to get your hands on a bottle though, be sure to save it for the special occasions where one just isn’t enough. In other words… know any twins? More Info.
