This is what got me into drinking scotch, I had the JW Black Label few years back and didn’t like it (perhaps too young to like whisky), I remember the day when I bought it, poured it into the Glencairn, the fruitiness got me thinking that whiskies aren’t all the same. I would recommend this to those who want to try out drinking scotch, before this I bought a bottle of Dewar White Label which was…..unappealing to say the least.
