The John Walker Masters' Edition
Johnnie Walker // Scotland
The John Walker Masters' Edition is a blend of rare whiskies from six distilleries--five now closed-- that existed during the lifetime of founder John Walker (1805-1857). Additionally, each whisky is aged a minimum of 50 years. The single malt distilleries used are Glen Albyn, Glenury Royal, Blair Athol (still open). As for the single grain, Caledonian, Cambus, and Port Dundas were selected. The bespoke cask to marry the whiskies was made from 100 year-old staves. The rare whisky crafted by master blender Jim Beveridge and his team yielded just 100 bottles. Each bottle is hand-numbered and presented in a black Baccarat decanter housed in a cabinet made by N.E.J. Stevenson, Cabinet Makers by Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen. Available as of October 2018 in select markets.
