Don't know what to order? Stuck in a subpar pub where you're unsure about the bartender's drink skills? Looking for a quick and easy cocktail at home? Want a drink with a low buzz that's appropriate for... well... well, business? The finest option is a whisky highball. Poured over ice and topped with soda, a dependable big-brand whisky. The Black & Soda amps up the classic drink with the strong flavours of Johnnie Walker Black Label. This dense, deep drink, full of black fruits, began as 'Extra Special Old Highland Whisky' but was given its current name in 1909. This velvety smooth 12-year-old whisky is a fan favourite, with a detectable degree of peat and smoke. In this popular pick, the initial rich sweet vanillas give way to orange zest and notes of spice and raisins. After all, nothing beats being immortalised in a painting by Winston Churchill himself. The flavours of the Johnnie Walker Black Label shine out against the sweet snippy taste of soda in this smoky rich drink with a little dry aftertaste. It's a well-balanced lengthy drink that's suitable for any occasion.
