Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish

Diageo expanded Johnnie Walker’s experimental whisky stable with the launch of Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish.

Described as “a bold experiment in flavour”, the new launch was created from experiments using more than 200 whisky samples. The final blend features whiskies from five distilleries including Dufftown and the now closed Port Dundas.

The blend is aged in first-fill Bourbon casks and finished for up to six months in former rye casks, resulting in a “rich” whisky with “intense honeyed sweetness”.

This limited edition whisky is part of Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch portfolio – the result of hundreds of ongoing flavour experiments carried out by a small team of blenders led by master blender Dr Jim Beverage.
