Last year I came across a new Johnnie Walker blend called Double Black which was being test marketed at a limited number of airport Duty Free shops around the world. I came across a bottle at SYD Duty Free and found it quite pleasant for a blended whisky. With more peat than the regular JW Black, this really was a drinkable blend for those of us who enjoy Islay single malts. At the time, bottles were going for about A$60, though I later found a "2 for NZ$99" deal at AKL Duty Free a few months later (about $33 a bottle). Yesterday I was on AC to PVG and saw that JW DB is now included in the inflight Duty Free catalog for C$40 a litre bottle, about C$6 more than the regular JW. If you like peaty Islay whiskys and find blends a bit sweet or harsh, then pick up a bottle and give it a try. (No age is given on the label, but the base is JW Black in which the youngest component malt in the blend is 12-years old. The Islay single malts in the DB might be in the 10-year range -- pretty standard for bottlings from this region given the heavy peat flavour -- which likely explains the lack of an age signifier.) Also noticed that the Macallan on offer doesn't have a aging date though seems to correspond with the description for the 12 rather than the 18 year old.
