Those of you who enjoy scotch, when was the last time you had a glass of Johnny Walker Black? I know, I know... it's a blended scotch. Blended scotches are terrible, single malt is the only way, yah yah yah. Ok, but on to unbiased non-snobbery, I've noticed through a couple fortunate occasions to try them side by side, it's actually smoother and and more flavourful than most lower-end single malts. I would take Johhny Black over any Glenfiddich, Oban, Longmorn, McCallum, and Glenlivet 12, 15, 18... to name a few.
