A marriage is usually a joyous occasion and in the case of Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Bourbon Cask and Rye Finish, it is a flavourful union of malts from the bourbon and rye casks.

In its pursuit of bolder combinations, the Scotch house has been experimenting with the use of various distillation conditions, cask finishes and types of wood used as well as the length of time in which the malts are left to age. Hundreds of experiments could have been conducted before the perfect blend is presented to the world.

The Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch is the latest endeavour, a limited edition series of experimental whiskies created by a small team of expert blenders in Scotland led by master blender Dr Jim Beveridge. The first bottle in the series is inspired by his time spent blending bourbon and rye in the 1990s in Kentucky.
