Johnnie Walker Latest Experimental Whiskies: The Blenders' Batch

Johnnie Walker Latest Experimental Whiskies: The Blenders' Batch


A couple of weeks back, I was privileged to invited to unlock Johnnie Walker’s latest innovation at The Vault, Kuala Lumpur on March 1 & 2, where they express their creativity and experimented with flavours by whisking up their own concoction of Scotch-inspired cocktails using simple ingredients such as eggs, cinnamon sticks, ginger, coffee, vanilla and fruits. It was a showcase of the new Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch

Johnnie Walker, the world’s number one-selling Scotch, houses a team of expert blenders that create the perfect blends, while having hundreds of ongoing new experiments with flavours being carried out by them. Now, for the first time ever, the brand is opening its doors to these experiments with the release of a range of new blends – Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch.

Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch is a brand new, limited edition series of experimental whiskies that challenge convention while revealing the skills and continuous pursuit of flavours that drives the small team of expert blenders led by Master Blender, Dr. Jim Beveridge, a man whose personal journey making whisky began over 40 years ago. Inspired by the time he spent blending bourbon and rye in Kentucky in the 90s, the first Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch series are the result of experiments into the influence of bourbon and rye whisky flavours on Scotch.

The first whisky from the Blenders’ Batch series that is being released is the Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish. Bottled in individually numbered bottles, this limited edition liquid is part of the progression in making whiskies that a new generation of whisky drinkers are seeking. The outcome of the experiments focused on what happens when the intensely sweet flavours of bourbon and rye whiskies are brought together with the depth and subtlety of carefully crafted Scotch whisky.

The new blend is a bold experiment in flavours which are drawn from over 200 whisky samples, aged in first-fill bourbon casks and finished for up to six months in former rye casks. Featuring whiskies from just five distilleries including Dufftown and the now closed Port Dundas, the Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask & Rye Finish is rich and warming with an intense honeyed sweetness.
