The 2016 Edition focuses on the delicate art of balancing aromatic layers of honey sweetness with soft, gentle fruit distillery character. It also highlights the splendour and radiance that grain whiskies bring to our Blended Scotch Whiskies.
One by one, over 100 casks of rare Single Grain Scotch Whiskies(including from five Johnnie Walker distilleries, four now silent –Caledonian, Cambus, Carsebridge and Port Dundas) were selected by Master Blender Jim Beveridge. At the blending table he gathered these into two styles - woody, vanilla, fudge notes and sweeter, estery, honey notes- alongside a special Highland SingleMalt Scotch Whisky from a range ofexperimental casks, before marrying in casks for several months.
The 2016 Edition is bottled in 8,888 individually numbered glass decanters, graduated in shades of amber toreflect the depth and layers of FineHoneyed Notes.
