Introducing the latest limited edition Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch Whisky
Johnnie Walker, the world’s No. 1 Scotch Whisky Brand and the biggest selling spirits brand in travel retail has added an exciting new innovation to the Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch series: Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish.
Feature 10 JAN 2018
Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch whiskies are the result of more than a hundred ongoing experiments that deliver unique flavours and amazing serves. Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is the seventh release from this series and the first to launch exclusively in travel retail.
Behind these Blenders' Batch whiskies is a small team of 12 expert whisky makers, who consistently prove that Johnnie Walker can push the boundaries of what’s possible for flavour in blended Scotch whisky.
Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish
For over a hundred years, the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label has been crafted with an element of sherry cask maturation. Drawing inspiration from this, and driven by the pursuit of flavour, this new Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch whisky has been matured in sherry casks, enhancing the fruity flavours to create an exceptionally rich and sweet Scotch.
Created with whiskies from distilleries such as Blair Athol, Cardhu and Strathmill, Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish, aged 12 years, is a smooth-sipping dark whisky with notes of sweet vanilla, smoke, raisins and a warming finish of dark chocolate.
“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 element it brought 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. The outcome has been extraordinary; Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is a sweet and rich whisky. It’s the perfect introduction for those who are new to Scotch whisky, but will also excite seasoned whisky lovers.”Aimée Gibson
