Blended Scotch Whisky
70cl / 46.0%
This new limited edition release from John Walker & Sons is a tribute to the journey that began 200 years ago when John Walker first opened the doors of a small grocery store in Kilmarnock.
Master Blender Jim Beveridge and his team have drawn inspiration from this grocery store and the flavours listed on the original inventory.
This blended whisky is made up of rare and exceptional whiskies, including ghost stocks from the distilleries of Pittyvaich, Cambus and Port Ellen. Each of these whiskies are at least 28 years old.
Nose: On the nose it’s a complex, rich whisky with layers of flavour in which an array of fruit aromas come together in harmony, balanced with warming spices and a soft, rolling smoke redolent of the rich array of exotic goods on offer. Dried fruit such as sultanas and figs are sweetened by hints of candied ginger, before berries, brown sugar and aromatic spices fill up the senses.
Palate: The first sip opens the doors to reveal delicious layers of spice mingling with sweet honey and rich molasses inspired by the rows of tempting jars. Waves of sultanas, cocoa beans and herbal notes are carried on wisps of soft smoke leading you further down the aisles of John’s store with every sip.
Finish: A sweet spice lingers as the door closes behind you.
