The John Walker Masters’ Edition Whisky

Oct 25, 2018

Category: Vices

Crafted as a triple-matured Scotch blended from six whiskies aged for a minimum of 50 years, The John Walker Master’s Edition is a fine tribute to the distillery’s founder John Walker. Not for nothing, this is one rare blend, especially considering that five of the six distilleries featured in the blend now lie silent.

To get more specific, this special blend features single malt whiskies drawn from some of the oldest stocks at the Glen Albyn and Glenury Royal distilleries — which are now closed — along with the celebrated Blair Athol distillery. Each blend is then finished in a marrying cask made of 100-year oak staves thus yielding layers of blackcurrants and citrus before giving way to notes of rich creamy chocolate and a sublet smoke character with cooling menthol on the finish. This exquisite spirit is limited to 100 bottles and available in select limited markets with one bottle being auctioned at Bonhams, Hong Kong in 2019.
