The Whiskey Noob Review Johnnie Walker Double Black

Johnnie Walker Double Black

A Scotch Whiskey Review by the Whiskey Noob


Ahh Johnnie…

So popular, so commonly known to a noob as a “good” scotch, something an uncle might bring to a family party to show off or to make it look like he spent a lot of money.

That’s what I used to think too…I was so naive…

Now I’m not gonna say that ALL johnnies are trash, but THIS one definitely is!

I mean, worst case scenario, I would probably throw some coke with that shit!

Or maybe drink it near the end of the night after you’ve already had more enjoyable whiskey and now you’re just trying to maintain your buzz…

That’s all it’s good for at this point.

Also, be careful when you’re buying whiskies at a liquor store and you ask for help from a store clerk and they guide you towards Johnnie…then you KNOW at this point they CAN’T be trusted…
