The experiment behind this latest release took inspiration from the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label, which has been crafted with an element of sherry cask maturation for over a hundred years. Inspired by this process, the whisky makers at Johnnie Walker wanted to delve deeper and explore the fruity notes that sherry cask maturation brings to the taste – creating the deliciously rich and sweet Johnnie Walker Blenders Batch Sherry Cask Finish, aged 12 years.
Made with whiskies from distilleries such as Blair Athol, Cardhu and Strathmill, Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is a smooth-sipping dark Scotch with notes of sweet vanilla, smoke, raisins and a warming finish of dark chocolate.
According to the press release the best way to enjoy Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish is to mix it with ginger ale and garnish with a fresh orange segment to create a delicious home-made cocktail.
Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Sherry Cask Finish was crafted specifically for travelers so it will only be sold at duty-free retail. Price point $44 dollars for 1 liter bottle.
