Any whiskey fans worth their salt most certainly caught the unique bottle of Johnnie Walker that was enjoyed by Rick Deckard in the first Blade Runner movie. Now, since practically all whisky tastes better aged, Johnnie Walker is making this unique variant available for purchase by ordinary civilians like us – in anticipation of Blade Runner 2049.
Dubbed Johnnie Walker Black Label Director’s Cut, it’s the culmination of both the whisky brand’s master distiller and director Denis Villeneuve – crafted from 30 malt and grain whiskies, blended to perfection, bottled at 49% abv, and housed in a futuristic bottle. Tasting notes are described as an expression of a dark, rich and smooth blended whisky with a bit of enhanced smokiness for a post-apocalyptic feel. Best of all, it clocks in at a reasonable $90 for those who want to pick up their own bottle.
