Notes: Johnnie Walker is synonymous with scotch. Walk into an average bar, order “a scotch”, and that’s what you’re going to get. At most open bars, weddings, work events and the like they have this; The Johnnie Walker Black. One step up from the red, but miles ahead from it’s bottom shelf brother.
