Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Finish is a silky, smooth scotch inspired by the bold and dynamic flavours of the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label
This new limited edition Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Finish is all the familiar flavours of Johnnie Walker Black Label drizzled with the sweetness of figs and plums that comes from the sherry seasoned casks.
It’s a dynamic and silky-smooth Scotch made using whiskies that have spent at least 12 years growing into a vibrant body of flavour finished in casks seasoned with sherry from Jerez for mellow sweet notes.
Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Finish offers flavours from across the four corners of Scotland, with sweet fruit and spice from distilleries like Clynelish in the Highlands and Cardhu on Speyside, creamy toffee, honey-like sweetness and vanilla from Lowland distilleries like Cameronbridge and Glenkinchie are wrapped in a cloak of smoke from Caol Ila on the Islands.
On the nose there is rich dried fruits with sultanas and figs, demerara sugar and Madagascan vanilla with notes of scented wood and sweet wood smoke. The palate is filled with woody flavours, including oak with mulled sultanas, red current coulis and just a hint of cloves. Before warm smoke and a lingering sweetness in the finish.
These are the rich flavours of Scotland distilled and balanced perfectly in a glass. It is smooth sweetness wrapped in smoke with sweet fruit bursting through dark chocolate and coffee.
The limited edition Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Finish is great when enjoyed neat or on the rocks and is perfectly paired at home with sweet treats such as dark fruits, nuts and chocolate after a meal.

Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Emma Walker, says: “This is a whisky inspired by the bold and dynamic layers of flavour that Johnnie Walker Black Label is famed for. We have taken that unmistakable character and exceptional depth of flavour and fired it with the mellow sweet smoothness of a finish in sherry seasoned casks so that the flavours dance with citrus; it is a taste collision of smooth and sherry.”
