John Walker Private Collection 28 Year Old Midnight Blend

Johnnie Walker has launched the fifth and final edition in the John Walker & Sons Private Collection, 28 Year Old Midnight Blend.

Johnnie Walker 28 Year Old Midnight BlendJohnnie Walker has launched John Walker & Sons Private Collection 28 Year Old Midnight Blend, the fifth and final edition in the John Walker & Sons Private Collection.

A limited release of 3,888 individually numbered decanters, each containing rare and precious whiskies aged for a minimum of 28 years. Said to have been made to be savoured after-dinner, or approaching the 'midnight' moment, the 28 Year Old Midnight Blend features layers of butterscotch, caramel and toffee, balanced with a fruitiness and touch of spice.

Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge commented on the whisky, saying: "Whiskies aged for 28 years are rare, and very special. In our search to find the flavours and characteristics necessary for a rich, indulgent Scotch like Midnight Blend, we were very lucky to have access to some of the most mature reserves drawn from the four corners of Scotland. Each individual malt and grain used in the final whisky adds layers of flavour to the 28 Year Old Midnight Blend, leaving hints of fruit, sweet and spice and making it a wonderful final addition to the Private Collection."

Working closely alongside fellow blender Craig Wallace, Jim sampled hundreds of the finest single malt and grain whiskies to eventually hand-select only a few rare whiskies with the character necessary for a Scotch this wonderfully smooth and indulgent.

The John Walker & Sons Private Collection was first launched in 2014 and features small batch, limited releases crafted using casks from the most valuable parts of the Johnnie Walker reserves that have yielded whiskies of outstanding quality.

The 28 Year Old Midnight Blend has been bottled 42.8% ABV has a recommended retail price of $750 RSP and will be available from November from specialist online whisky shops such  as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
