An absolute cracker of a blend from perhaps the world’s most famous blending company, Johnnie Walker!
This whisky more or less follows the same formula as the much-loved Johnnie Walker Platinum edition. The whisky is made up of 18 different grain and malt whiskies, with large proportions of the latter coming from illustrious distilleries such as Blair Athol, Cardu, Auchroisk, and Glen Elgin. Each whisky was carefully selected by the master blender, Jim Beveridge (a suitable surname given his profession!)
The hard work of Beveridge and Johnnie Walker’s team of tasters, nosers and blenders has certainly paid off, with a sumptuously flavourful spirit the reward. This whisky is packed with soft, subtle flavours of toffee, cherry, warm cereal, slight smoke, overripe bananas, dried fruit and sweet wine.
A truly gorgeous whisky, and a testament to the skills of Jim Beveridge, the two time World Master Blender of the Year. Would make a fantastic gift.
