Walker Introduces 28 Year Old Midnight Blend
By FBWorld Team
Walker has launched the final and fifth edition in the John
Walker & Sons Private Collection, 28 Year Old Midnight Blend
- a smooth and indulgent Scotch Whisky to be shared amongst
friends and best enjoyed after dinner.
3,888 limited-edition, individually numbered collectible decanters
of this decadent Scotch have been released, with each containing
rare and precious whiskies aged for a minimum of 28 years. Made
to be savoured after-dinner, or approaching the 'midnight' moment,
28 Year Old Midnight Blend features layers of butterscotch,
caramel and toffee, balanced with a fruitiness and touch of
Johnnie Walker Midnight Blend
Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge said: "Whiskies aged
for 28 years are rare, and very special. In our search to find
the flavours and characteristics necessary for a rich, indulgent
Scotch like Midnight Blend, we were very lucky to have access
to some of the most mature reserves drawn from the four corners
of Scotland. Each individual malt and grain used in the final
whisky adds layers of flavour to the 28 Year Old Midnight Blend,
leaving hints of fruit, sweet and spice and making it a wonderful
final addition to the Private Collection."
closely alongside fellow blender Craig Wallace, Jim sampled
hundreds of the finest single malt and grain whiskies to eventually
hand-select only a few rare whiskies with the character necessary
for a Scotch this wonderfully smooth and indulgent.
John Walker & Sons Private Collection was first launched
in 2014 and features small batch, limited releases crafted using
casks from the most valuable parts of the Johnnie Walker reserves
that have yielded whiskies of outstanding quality.
latest Edition (42.8%), 28 Year Old Midnight Blend, is best
served neat, in a balloon glass, rolled in the hand to gently
warm the whisky and release the distinctive aromas. For a truly
decadent serve, enjoy with a square of dark chocolate.
Year Old Midnight Blend will be available from November at select
locations with a recommended retail price of $750
