Johnnie Walker Black Label

Aged: 12 years

Colour: Light golden brown

Strength: 40%

Best for: a never-go-wrong, default dram anywhere in the world

Nose: vanilla with rich citrus, and gentle Xmas pudding with a rocking peat hint that starts wet and earthy and finishes dry and smoky. Quite a trick

Taste: rich, full and varied with toffee, barley and wood smoke then raisins and Christmas pud on the finish

Verdict: bloody marvelous and available in just about any bar in the world. A true staple and a firm USW favourite
