Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye FinishJohnnie Walker master blender Dr Jim Beveridge has been busy once again, this time crafting Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish.

This is the second limited edition in the Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch portfolio, a series of innovative and experimental whiskies from the worlds best selling blended Scotch whisky. The experimental series aims to challenge convention and showcase the skill of the small team of expert blenders at Johnnie Walker.

Available only in a small number of selected markets, including Travel Retail, Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish contains over 200 whisky samples, aged in first-fill bourbon casks and finished for up to six months in former rye casks.

Its component whiskies originate from just five distilleries including Dufftown and the now closed Port Dundas grain distillery, Jonnie Walker say the new blend is rich and warming with an intense honeyed sweetness.

The magic, creativity and experimentation brought to life in the whisky making process, is what drives the blending team at Johnnie Walker to experiment with new and surprising taste experiences, resulting in this latest addition to the Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch series. The on-going flavour experiments that Beveridge and his team study at the brand's home in Scotland are a crucial part of their work, focussing on developing and understanding alternative flavours including wine, coffee and chocolate.

"Experimentation is the key to innovation," says Dr Beveridge. "It's something that has been at the heart of Johnnie Walker from the very beginning and which has enabled us to consistently create perfect whiskies like Johnnie Walker Red Label and Johnnie Walker Black Label for generations.

The new Johnnie Walker Blenders' Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish limited edition blended Scotch was bottled at 40% ABV and will be available in a select number of markets including travel retail and has a RRP US$52.50/32 per 1 litre bottle.

You will find the current Johnnie Walker whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
