Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish has just been released. The first market to receive this bottle will be Singapore.
The whisky is the second release from the Johnnie Walker Blender’s Batch series, an experimental take on Scotch whiskies that challenges tradition. The first release was the Johnnie Walker Red Rye Finish.
Rajesh Joshi, Marketing Director, Moet Hennessy Diageo explained, “At Diageo, we are committed to breakthrough innovation and experiments, which is at the heart of our growth strategy. The Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch series showcases the range of miscellany and character of the liquid, enabling consumers to rediscover the world of Scotch.”
For this edition, over 200 whisky samples were aged in first-fill bourbon casks and then finished in former rye casks for up to six months. The result is a warming and full-bodied blend with a honeyed sweetness.
