Setting out to push the boundaries of what Scotch Whisky could be, Johnnie Walker Master Blender Emma Walker and Japanese chef Kei Kobayashi have encapsulated the enigmatic taste of umami. Only one in 25,000 casks succeed in bringing this limited edition blend to life.
Notes of blood oranges and red berries, with sweet wood spice.
A deep golden colour that’s burnished in the light.
Rich caramelised miso notes, including tropical top notes of grilled pineapple, rich cacao and blackberry tannin.
Cleansing mineral salinity gives way to a long, sweet, fruit finish.
“Umami possesses a mysterious quality that ignites our senses, revealing sumptuous taste and complexity. The final liquid is a multi-faceted expression of what I interpret Umami to be.”
Enjoy a spoon of Oscietra Caviar, ensuring the caviar coats the palate. Once swallowed, take a small sip of the whisky, let that intermingle with the flavors of the caviar, take 10-15 seconds to reflect on the waves of flavor on the palate and savor slowly. Repeat in this order, responsibly.
