Nightcap 26 Johnnie Walker Black Label 12yo

It is a deep golden colour with tinges of mahogany. It has a really powerful complex nose. The malt is there of course, but it shows fruits such as grapes, apples and other citrus varieties. Super smooth on the way down and then the alcohol does its stuff and warms the oesophagus. A burst of peat, but mouth-filling and pleasant. Definitely a hint of sherry barrels. There is a long strong finish. It is a better blend, more balanced than the green label of yesterday. This blend blows the Oban away and at less than half the price. What am I going to do with all that expensive Oban. Try a rusty nail?
