New limited edition whisky from Johnnie Walker
Johnnie Walker has released a special edition whisky exclusive to travelers. Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is available now in duty free stores worldwide.
The Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch portfolio is a series of whiskies crafted with the freedom to create blends that challenge whisky making traditions. The result is a unique series of experimental whiskies which deliver distinctive flavours and amazing serves.
The experiment behind this latest release took inspiration from the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label, which has been crafted with an element of sherry cask maturation for over a hundred years. Inspired by this process, the whisky makers at Johnnie Walker wanted to delve deeper and explore the fruity notes that sherry cask maturation brings to the taste – creating the deliciously rich and sweet Johnnie Walker Blenders Batch Sherry Cask Finish, aged 12 years.
Made with whiskies from distilleries such as Blair Athol, Cardhu and Strathmill, Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is a smooth-sipping dark Scotch with notes of sweet vanilla, smoke, raisins and a warming finish of dark chocolate.
Aimée Gibson, Johnnie Walker expert whisky maker says: “Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch whiskies are the result of bold experiments that push the boundaries in flavour. Taking inspiration from the element of sherry cask maturation in Johnnie Walker Black Label, I was intrigued by the rich and fruity taste it added to the blend. It inspired me to experiment with the sherry cask finish to awaken more of these fruity notes and to add a unique flavour dynamic.”
She added: “The outcome has been extraordinary; Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is a fantastically sweet and rich whisky. It’s the perfect introduction for those who are new to Scotch Whisky, but will also excite seasoned whisky lovers.”
