We have received a ton of requests for this thing. We won't even call it a Binny's Mailbag, just plain old spirits news.

   Johnnie Walker Double Black is on the way. The Whiskey Hotline originally reported that Double Black would see a September retail release, but now it's looking like it will be on shelves in the first week of November. Retail will be $39.99 for the 750mL bottle.

   People keep asking if they can pre-order this thing, or be put on a waiting list. Neither should be necessary. It looks like we are going to receive a pretty sizable allocation, so there should be enough to go around.

   This new Double Black is a new extension for the Johnnie Walker range that uses more West Coast malts that means much more peat for a smokier, more robust blend. Theyr'e taking their iconic style and pushing the boundaries even further.

   It originally saw a very limited release in just a few travel retail locations, but now we're excited to see distribution broaden to include Binny's.

   November. Counting down. Watch for more info here on the Binny's Spirit Blog and over on The Whiskey Hotline.
