Now this is exciting and welcome news!
The House of Walker celebrates the life of its founder with the launch of The John Walker , an incredibly special blend of whisky that is the epitome of the Johnnie Walker Blue family of scotch whiskies.
I have written about the qualities of Johnnie Walker Blue label before.
Hand-crafted and made to order in single barrel batches with only 330 bottles available, The John Walker embodies rarity and exclusivity.
This is very, very special whisky, make no mistake.
Presented in a unique, individually numbered Baccarat crystal decanter that is hand blown, polished and engraved by one of only three Master-craftsmen in the world; The John Walker contains whisky blended from 9 hand selected casks.
Every care has been made to recreate the authentic flavours of a 19th Century blend in John Walker’s original style and the whisky has been taken from a range of distilleries, some of which are now closed; making this whisky quite literally priceless.
The John Walker is the ultimate luxury gift for any discerning gentleman.
You can judge this book by its cover…this is packaging on another level. A hand crafted lacquer cabinet with over 60 hours of workmanship
The eleven layers of lacquer and luxurious cream leather interior represent a finish of superior quality.
No detail is left to chance from the Baccarat cut crystal stopper to the 24 Carat Gold plated neck collar and travel stopper.
The important part – the taste of The John Walker whisky! This starts in sophisticated fashion with the richness of mature fruits slowly following from the more youthful aromas of fresh citrus.
The initial burst of flavour is defined by a vanilla oak sweetness, with echos of smoke coming through. Smoother than George Clooney, this is without a doubt a simply wonderful whisky, yet another from the House of Johnnie Walker.
The John Walker has a RRP of just £2,000 and is available exclusively from Harrods.
Unrivalled quality in every area. Priceless.
