John Walker Sons
Private Edition 2018: The Midnight Blend
This fifth and final release in the John Walker Sons Private Collection has been created with whiskies aged at least 28 years from distilleries including Cambus, Strathmillon, Caol Ila and Clynelish for a rich and warming whisky, limited to just 3,888 bottles.
The nose has rich citrus and toffee to the fore, with Islay smoke and vanilla emerging slowly. The palate has creamy vanilla and butterscotch with tropical and fresh fruit notes, before a long, sweet and warming finish with hints of spice.
Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch
Directors Edition 2016
Limited to just 501 sets, this collection of two 50cl bottles features Blenders’ Batch Experiments #5 and #6, entitled Major Peat and Bacchus respectively.
Major Peat has Island smokiness from Talisker and Caol Ila combined with smooth grain from Cameronbridge and Port Dundas, giving ripe autumnal fruit flavours and a vanilla sweetness. The Bacchus has delicate layers of Speyside fruitiness from Roseisle matured in wine casks, married with aged grain whiskies to give a sweet honey vanilla flavour.
