Johnnie Walker has expanded their Blender’s Batch portfolio. They have recently launched a Rum Cask Finish, Wine Cask Blend and Espresso Roast experimental whiskeys.
All three new blends – Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Wine Cask Blend, Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Rum Cask Finish and Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Espresso Roast – were designed to form the foundation of exceptional Scotch cocktails and yet, like all the brand’s classic whiskies, they can also be enjoyed straight up over ice.
The Rum Cask Finish was aged in casks that previously held Caribbean rum while the Wine Cask Blend matured in casks that previously held wine. In what seems to be their boldest expression in this launch, the Espresso Roast is toted as “deliciously rich, smooth and meticulously crafted blended Scotch with punchy notes of rich coffee and dark chocolate.”
Johnnie Walker Wine Cask Blend will be available in September 2017 at a $29.99 pricepoint. Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Rum Cask Finish and Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Espresso Roast will be coming in October.
